CANONSBURG, Pa. -- The Point Park University men's golf team placed fourth of 10 teams at the Peter C. Rossin Memorial hosted by Washington & Jefferson College Sunday and Monday at Southpointe Golf Club.
The Pioneers climbed the learderboard up to fourth place after being in seventh place after 18 holes on Sunday. Point Park shot 314 in the final round Monday after opening up with a 326.
Ohio Wesleyan won the team title with a 36-hole score of 613 after rounds of 304 and 309. Host Washington & Jefferson was the first-round leader with an opening 301 but ended up second and two shots back of Ohio Wesleyan with a 314 on Monday. St. Vincent took third thanks to its 301 over the final 18 holes, which was 20 shots better than its first 18 holes.
Point Park also entered a 'B' team in the tournament, and it finished 9th. Point Park had four participants entered on each of its teams, one less than the five that is allowed. Teams that enter five golfers can throw out the worst score shot on the team.
Chris Bowen tied for sixth individually at 10-over 154 for the tournament. Bowen shot the best round of the day in the final round Monday with a 1-over 73 on the very tough Southpointe Golf Club, which is home to the Web.com Tour's Mylan Classic. Bowen shot 81 the first round. The best round of the tournament was 72 on Sunday.
Eric Poplowski cut six strokes off his first-round score for a 77 on Monday and finished tied for 18th. Steve Veydt also improved by six shots with 1 final-round 78 and tied for 21st. Collin Holmes (78-86) was the fourth player for Point Park.
James Daley was the only Point Park golfer to break 80 both days, and he shot 78-78 to tie for 13th and lead the Point Park 'B' team in scoring. Michael Popovec (84-78) tied for 18th along with Poplowski. Alex Reynolds (87-80) and Ben Kennedy (85-94) also competed for the B Team.
Point Park is now finished with its fall schedule. The Pioneers will enter a full slate of spring events with the schedule TBA in the future.
