TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The Lipscomb men’s golf team closed out the 2016 NCAA Tuscaloosa Men’s Golf regional on Wednesday with a solid 18 holes to finish tied for eighth at the Ol’ Colony Golf Complex in Tuscaloosa in the team’s first-ever NCAA postseason appearance.
“Obviously, anytime you do something first it’s historic and it’s a benchmark that you reach and a level that you don’t ever really want to go below again,” said Lipscomb director of golf Will Brewer. “I think we’ve set a standard for this program that we need to get to Nationals every year if possible."
The Bisons carded a final-round even, par 288 to tie with Colorado with an overall score of +26, 890 (302-300-288).
"We played better today," said Brewer. "I don't know if it's because we're do or die or if it was just the fact that we got comfortable with the golf course and made a few more puts today.
"Everybody played well. I think our guys rose to the occasion. We shot even par today, so that was by far our best round. Typically, what we've tended to do is finish strong. I appreciate that. It entails the character and integrity of these young men."
- Mikey Feher closed the 54-hole event strong with four birdies on the back nine to give him a one-under, 71 for the day notching the best round of the day for the Bisons. Feher finished the tourney with a +18, 234 (81-82, 71).
- Eric Ansett also posted his best round of the regional with an even-par, 72 to finish out. Ansett ended the event with a +11, 227 (78-77-72).
- Stoney Crouch also posted a final-day even-par 72, to lead the Bisons with a +6, 222 (75-75-72) over the course of the tournament.
