BRUNSWICK, Maine – Led by the tournament's top golfer, Stephen Hunt, the Saint Anselm College men's golf team claimed first place at the Bowdoin Invitational this past weekend. For the second-straight season, the Hawks placed first among a talented field of the region's top golfers.
Saint Anselm combined to shoot 303 on the first day of competition, holding onto first place by 15 strokes, before posting a tournament-low score of 300 to maintain its first place standing against the field. The Hawks finished with 22 strokes fewer than Endicott, who carded a combined 625. Nichols rounded out the top three team finishers, recording a +60 over par.
Hunt, a second place finisher at the Invitational one year ago, captured first place by shooting even par (72) across both rounds to finish with 144 total strokes, eight fewer than the second place finisher, junior Billy Argus. Seniors Nick Carter and Tad Link shot a two-day total of 157, tying for ninth place, while classmate Robbie Cole rounded out the Hawks participants with a 15-over 159 to tie for 16th.
The Hawks will head to the Penmen Invitational next Monday, Sept. 18 at the Hanover Country Club in Hanover, N.H.
