Union wins BMC Invitational
Led by Brett Barry’s 77, Union University captured the 2011 BMC Fall Invitational by one shot over Blue Mountain College Wednesday, Oct. 19.
On a cold, blustery day at the 6,700-yard, par 72 Kirkwood National Golf Club in Holly Springs, Union posted a team score of 324, one shot ahead of host BMC. Bethel University finished third at 327 and Lyon College was fourth at 339.
Chris Yeater of Bethel captured medalist honors with a 76, while BMC’s Daniel Singh and Brandon Robbins each had a 78. There were only four players in the 29-player field to break 80, while winds were blowing up to 20 mph and temperatures were in the high 40s.
“We played well, considering the weather,” BMC coach Danny McKenzie said. “Kirkwood is a very difficult golf course under the best of circumstances and today was really hard. Those four guys who broke 80 played some serious golf.”
Noting that BMC finished second to Bethel by two shots at the recent Martin Methodist Invitational, McKenzie said, “We’re getting closer. We’ve got some good teams in our conference (TranSouth) and we’ve just got to keep plugging. We’ll get there.”
BMC closed out its fall season with a visit to the Lake Caroline Collegiate Championship on Monday and Tuesday of this week.
