Appalachian State University men’s golf completed play at the Myrtle Beach National Invitational in
Myrtle Beach, S.C. on Tuesday afternoon.
The Mountaineers finished in second place behind Southern Wesleyan University by three total strokes. App State shot a tournament total of 571 good for five-under-par as a team. Southern Wesleyan finished with a team best 570.
“We had a good finish and played well both days,” said head coach Bill Dicus. “Casey deserved to win. He has played very well for us for a long time and it was good for him to hit the ball well.”
The Apps were led by senior Casey Komline who finished first overall individually firing a second round 71 for a tournament total of 140. Komline edged out four golfers by one stroke to take first.
Sophomore Lee Mitchell was not far behind – shooting a 72 in the second round to match his first round 72 to finish in a tie for eighth place individually.
One more Mountaineers finished top 20 overall individually. Sophomore Caleb Keck shot a 72 in the second round for a tournament total of 145 and tied for 12th individually.
Junior Andrew Furr finished in a tie for 12th individually after firing a 71 and 145 overall. Furr participated as an individual and thus did not factor into the team standing. The junior fired a second round 71 for a tournament total of 145. Freshman Patrick Moriarty shot a 77 in the second round after carding a 71 on Monday for a 148 total and finished tied for 25th.
Junior Eric Eberspeaker finished in a tie for 23rd place after shooting a 71 on Tuesday – five strokes better than his round one total. Eberspeaker finished with a 147 for the tournament. The Mountaineers will be in action again on Sep. 30 and Oct. 1 when they travel to Cleveland, Ohio to participate in the John Telich Invitational.
