UMHB Men's Golf finishes second at Al Jones Memorial

The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor men’s golf team fired two solid rounds, but fell just short of the team title as the Cru finished in second place at the Al Jones Memorial Tournament Monday in Tyler. UMHB was edged by one stroke by Tyler Junior College while recording the best finish among NCAA Division III programs in the field.

The Cru fired a 289 to open the day and followed with a 287 to finish at 576 for the tournament. Tyler Junior College’s blistering second round of 282, coupled with a first-round 293 put the Apaches at 575, one shot ahead of the Cru for the team title. UMHB’s 576 team total is the fifth-best 36-hole total in Cru men’s golf history. Tournament host U.T.-Tyler posted a 285-293=578 to take third place, Concordia Texas took fourth place with a 303-292=595 and U.T.-Tyler’s “B” team rounded out the top five with a 301-298=599. The 14-team field included eight American Southwest Conference programs.

Jarrod Brown was the top individual finisher for UMHB after posting a 72-68=140 to claim second place. Brown’s 140 total ties the fifth-lowest 36-hole total in school history and featured three eagles. The three eagles represent a Cru single-day record and only two other players in UMHB history have had as many as three eagles in an entire season. Reese Chance carded a 74-70=144 for the Cru to take seventh place, Mats Heien tied for eighth place with a 71-74=145, Alden Fortner fired a 73-75=148 to tie for 17th place and Kyle Revis carded 73-77=150 to tie for 25th place. Tyler Junior College’s Marco Maldonado won the individual title after firing a 73-66=139 to edge Brown by one stroke.

The one-day, 36-hole event was played on a par-72, 6,728-yard layout at Hollytree Country Club in Tyler. The UMHB men will return to action with the only home tournament of the fall schedule. The Cru will host the UMHB Fall Invitational on October 10-11 at Stonetree Golf Club in Killeen.
