PISCATAWAY, NJ – The Rutgers men’s golf team opened its season on Friday, Sept. 16, when it played host to 12 teams in the Rutgers Invitational. The Scarlet Knights shot a 577 over the first 36 holes and find themselves in a tie for third place.

Columbia carded a 562 (282-280) over the first 36 holes and has a three stroke lead going into the final 18 holes which will be played on Saturday, Sept. 17 beginning at 8:02 a.m. Chris Condello shot a blistering 138 (68-70) for the Columbia Lions but George Zolstas shot a 141 (71-70) as did Kevin Velardo (72-69) helped St. Johns keep pace with the Lions by posting -1 scores after the first 36 holes.

Rutgers was led by junior Seth Hirschhorn (Willingboro, NJ) and senior Jason Bataille (South Plainfield, NJ). Hirschhorn had the most impressive round of the day, shooting a sparkling 66 on the first 18 holes. He finished out the day with a 74 in the second round and finds himself fifth overall with a 140 heading into the third and final round.

Joe McLister of Delaware is in a tie for second place with both Matt Wong of Columbia and Aaron Ungvarsky of Binghamton. All three have legitimate chances to catch Condello during the final round.

The final round is set to tee off at 8:02 p.m. at the Rutgers University Golf Course on Saturday, Sept. 17.
