ADA, Mich. – The Forester men’s golf team had another solid outing to bring home a seventh place finish out of 19 teams at Taylor University’s Egypt Valley Intercollegiate by shooting a 611. HU got off to a great start by posting a 301 in the opening round for the fifth spot before shooting a 310 on Tuesday to drop two spots.

For the second straight tournament, Luis Esteban paced Coach Sholund’s squad. The rookie fired a 143 (70, 73) good for third place out of 110 golfers. Cale Carr shot a 73 both days to finish tied for fifth with a 146. Zak Cummings was also a model of consistency, turning in two 79s to post a 158 for a share of 52nd place.

Nate Mynatt (85, 85) and Otto Bjartmarz (79, 92) rounded out HU’s scoring by carding a 170 and 171 respectively. Zach Borntreger played as an individual and turned in a 159 (75, 84) to finish tied for 55th.

“The guys continue to show improvement overall and we are seeing less big numbers,” said Coach Rick Sholund. “We are gaining confidence as a team each week. I am very proud of how hard these guys are working, not only on the course, but off the course and in the classroom as as well. 

“We are very young but we are seeing a veteran work ethic. It's been fun to watch that growth and we look forward to taking that momentum to Kansas City.”

The Foresters have one more tournament this fall, the Park University Fall Classic, on October 17-18.
