Season Starts for Men's Golf

By Laura Nelson on 02/27/2013 Pottsboro, Texas—The Oklahoma Panhandle State University men's golf team got their season underway Feb. 25-26 at the Crawford Wade Invitational hosted by Texas A&M Commerce.

Aggie Trent Combs finished one under with a 71 in the first round on Monday to tie for fourth place and he also led the field in par-4 scoring. Unfortunately, an injury left him unable to compete in round two. Tyler Harper turned in a 171 (82, 89) to lead the Aggie scoring and Brandon Trippe, Cole Eidemiller and Taylor Campbell rounded out the team.

Conference rivals St. Mary's University and the University of Arkansas-Ft. Smith earned first and second place team honors, respectively with Matthew Van Winkle of StMU placing first overall with a 142 (68, 74). McMurry University, still a provisional member of the Heartland Conference, competed along with eleven other non-conference schools and 81 total golfers played both rounds.

The men play in McPherson, Kan. Mar. 4-6 in a tournament hosted by Bethany College. The women begin their spring season Mar. 10 in a dual match against Northwestern Oklahoma State University on Mar. 10.
