Scots place fourth in tournament

September 15, 2017

The Fighting Scots hit the course last Tuesday in Aurora for a one-day 36-hole tournament. Monmouth would shoot two rounds of 329 for a total of 658 for the day placing them in 14th place out of twenty teams.

The men would get a solid round from Nate Hopper as he would go on to shoot 77-75 for a total of 152 to finish 18th place out of over 100 golfers. The Scots would also get good rounds from Nate Monroe, shooting an 81-83 for a total of 164. Senior Logan Moothart would come into the clubhouse with an 82-83 totaling 165 for the team.

On Friday, the men traveled to Port Byron, Illinois to play Byron Hills golf course. The Scots would shoot a season best 298 with some fabulous scores leading them to a fourth-place finish out of 14 teams. Nate Monroe would shoot a career best 68 and tie for first in the tournament. Monroe’s 68 would be the Fighting Scots’ fourth lowest score all-time. Along with Monroe’s 68, Nate Hopper would card a 74 followed by sophomore Sam Gillen’s career best 77.

“We have a lot of untapped potential and we will continue to get better this fall by spending time around the practice greens,” said Moothart after the tournament. “As a team we need to make sure that our short game is stellar because that is where we can make up the most strokes.”

The men look to take their previous tournament success into the weekend as the Scots’ travel to Galena, Illinois this weekend for the Midwest Region Classic.
