Men's golf finishes tied for eighth in 38th Annual Schenkel Invitational

STATESBORO, Ga. – The Lipscomb men’s golf team wrapped up play in the 38th Annual Schenkel Invitational on Sunday tying for eighth place at the Forest Heights Country Club in Statesboro, Georgia.

“It was a tale of two tournaments for us,” said Lipscomb director of golf Will Brewer.  “We were obviously on a high after winning Monday’s 36-hole event and very confident.  The Schenkel was held at a very interesting golf course with some very trick hole locations and we didn’t handle It well.

“We didn’t putt well and we didn’t process well. Today may have been our worse day of the season and we still have a lot of work to do.  I’m still proud of the way the guys fought. They did a great job of never giving up.”
