Golf takes second place at Ohio Wesleyan

The Carnegie Mellon golf team showed well at Tuesday’s Lamkin Fall Intercollegiate Golf tournament, placing second behind host Ohio Wesleyan University, with a two-round team total of 593 and two top 10-individual golfers.

Senior Alex Timmons finished three over par at 145 with two games of 72 and 73 each, and tied for fifth place with Ohio Wesleyan’s Jesse Chiero. Junior Christopher Lee was also successful, finishing just one stroke behind and taking eighth place in the tournament overall.

Not only did Carnegie Mellon have two top-10 individual golfers, it also had some players finishing in the top 20, top 30, and even top 40. Senior Joshua Chen scored 150 and was the 17th best individual. First-years Terence Einhorn finished at 23rd with a 152 score and Michael Cheng finished at 37th with a 155 score.

With such a strong performance in last week’s tournament, Carnegie Mellon hopes to carry its success into the annual Guy Kuhn Invitational in Meadville, Pa. hosted by Allegheny College, which started yesterday and will conclude tonight.
