Buckeyes Take Eighth at Jack Nicklaus Invitational
Sept. 30, 2013
COLUMBUS, Ohio - After three rounds of play on the Scarlet Course at The Ohio State University Golf Club, the Buckeye men's golf team concluded the Jack Nicklaus Invitational Monday in eighth. Ohio State carded a 47-over 899 on the par 71, 7,455-yard course, with sophomore Tee-k Kelly posting the lowest individual score for the Buckeyes with a 5-over 218.
Kelly was consistent throughout the weekend, ending with a final round score of 2-over 73 for an 11th-place tie. The Wheaten, Ill., native dropped six birdies overall, including two in the third round of play.
Freshman Frederik Hammer and junior Boo Timko placed 27th in the final individual standings, each recording an 11-over 224. Hammer started off the tournament with a solid 1-over 72 in the first round and went on to card a 6-over 77 in the final. Timko improved in the final round, earning three birdies for a 3-over 74 performance.
California finished the invite, ironically named after the Golden Bear himself, as the only team under par. With a tournament-record 842 (-10) Cal took the team competition, but that wasn't the only title the group garnered. The Golden Bears also placed first in the individual standings with Brandon Hagy tallying a 6-under 207 overall score.
The Buckeyes will return to the links with the Rod Myers Invitational in Durham, North Carolina Oct. 28-29.
