|Golf Hosts Irish Creek Intercollegiate Sat./Sun.|
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Charlotte 49ers men’s golf team will host its annual Irish Creek Intercollegiate on Saturday and Sunday in Kannapolis. The 7,099-yard, par 71 layout of The Club at Irish Creek will once again be the site with admission free and open to the public all weekend.
The Niners enter the weekend after two weeks off last participating in the Linger Longer Invitational in Greensboro, Georgia. Charlotte put together a 12th place effort of 890 (285/301/304) led by Riley Davenport’s 221 (70/76/75) finishing tied for 29th.
Franco Castro concluded one shot back of Davenport with a 222 (72/76/74) while Thomas Rowland was one back of Castro at 223 (70/76/77). Castro would wrap up T-35th while Rowland finished T-38th. Raoul Menard’s 226 (73/73/80) and Joe Toland’s 232 (77/77/78) capped off Charlotte’s team scoring for the weekend.
Rowland has already taken medalist honors earlier in the season using a birdie on the 18th as a playoff hole to take the top individual award in an earlier tournament this season at Irish Creek.
Castro leads the Niners with 14 rounds under par heading into Irish Creek while Menard and Davenport have nine and five rounds in the red respectively. Castro sports an 18-hole average of 72 through eight events in 2014 while Menard, Davenport and Dan Hendry are all averaging in the 73’s.
