TOWSON, MD - The Rutgers men’s golf team continued its fall season on Sept. 19-20, finishing seventh out of 12 teams at the Towson Fall Invitational, shooting a combined score of 593 (300-293) over the two days.
RU junior Seth Hirschhorn (Willingboro, NJ) carded a 148 (72-76) during the two-day event, good for a 22nd place tie, and for the second straight invitational, he was the top finisher for the Scarlet Knights. Campbell, George Mason and James Madison rounded out the top three team finishers, with Fredrik Sundberg of Campbell firing a 136 (66-70) to finish eight-under-par, three strokes ahead of second-place finisher Mike Cavanagh of George Mason.
Rutgers senior co-captain Michael Kosup (Flemington, NJ) played two solid rounds, finishing with a 149 (75-74) and a tie for 26th at the event’s end. Rounding out the Scarlet Knights were three players tied for 32nd. Senior co-captain Jason Bataille (South Plainfield, NJ), freshman Isaac Lim (Piscataway, NJ) and freshman Landon Boger (Skillman, NJ) all finished with combined scores of 150.
Head coach Maura Waters is encouraged by her team’s performance through the first two events, especially the play of Hirschhorn.
“He has been on his game,” Waters said of Hirschhorn’s play early in the fall season. “His irons have been very accurate and that as been one of his strengths. He has always been a good putter and that has led to his recent success.”
The RU men’s golf team will be off until Oct. 3 and 4 when it travels to Williamsburg, VA, to take part in the William & Mary Invitational
