Kirkwood Golf holds their own

The Kirkwood Community College Eagle golfers went to battle the TPC course in Memphis, Tenn., along with 11 other four-year colleges. Kirkwood was the only two-year college invited to play in this classic two-day tournament.

The first day took its casualties on many of the golfers from all teams. The constant rain beat down the professional course and the wind was blustery. But, the Eagles stood together and battled to stay in touch with their competition.

The second day the Eagles shot much better and finished tied for third place amongst all that talent.

Head Coach Darin Pint stated, “It looked a lot like last fall. We had a whole group of golfers within a stroke of each other. We battled and fought through a very tough course.”

He also stated, “This will help us later in the year. It is good to go out and play and extremely tough course with high class competition.”

Pint also took his team to the University of Illinois Springfield invitational held at the Rail Golf Course in Springfield, Ill. The Eagles were again the only two-year college invited that included seven NCAA Division II teams.

The first day the Eagles played pretty well, said Pint, but finished the day down by seven strokes to McKendree State University and Southern Indiana University. There was a bright spot for the day as freshman Charles Hartwig from Australia tied an 18-hole individual record, according to coach Pint.

Hartwig turned around on day two and shot an amazing -6 (66) and buried the previous individual tournament record.

Pint said, “It was an amazing two rounds Charles put up. It overshadowed the round that Carson Whittington put up shooting -3 (69).”

The Eagles won the championship with Hartwig as the number one individual scorer, Whittingham as the number three individual scorer and the entire team placing in the top 20 individual scoring.
