LEBANON, Ind.  – Playing at the Trophy Club, the Forester men’s golf team finished seventh at their own invitational over the weekend by posting a 632 (315, 317).

Lance Hoch paced Coach Sholund’s crew by carding a 156 (80, 76) to finish tied for 17th out of 47 golfers. Logan DeMaa shot a 79, 78 (157) to finish one stroke behind Hoch for 20th place. Zach Borntreger turned in a 159 (80, 79) to enjoy a share of 21st place while Cale Carr recorded a 160 (76, 84) and Logan Choka finished with a 172 (81, 91).

“I was very pleased with how we managed to avoid the big numbers when we faced difficult situations,” said Sholund. “The Trophy Club is a challenging course that makes you think about ball placement on every shot.

“The guys did a great job with that this weekend and we have more consistent scores because of it. I am very excited with their growth. I believe they are starting to see their potential. And we are thankful to B.G. Winings and his staff for their hard work and professionalism in hosting our first event there. We look forward to hosting at such a fantastic venue again next year.”

Taylor shot a 597 to take home the title followed by Mount Vernon (605), Parkland (608), Taylor B (624), Missouri Baptist (626), Illinois Central (631), HU (632), Spring Arbor (666) and Purdue Calumet (666).
