April 15, 2012 · Athletic Communications
RALEIGH, NC – The Middle Tennessee men’s golf team shot a 2-under par 286 in the final round of the Wolfpack Spring Open to finish fourth in the 17-team tournament. The Blue Raiders’ round on Sunday was the second-best of the tournament.

Host NC State won the event with a 36-hole score of 577 while Lamar shot a 581 to finish second. No. 31 East Carolina came in third followed by MT and Louisville in fifth.

“This was one of the best team rounds we have played all year,” said Head Coach Whit Turnbow. “It was a difficult course on a windy day and to be under par was a great day. It came at a great time as the Sun Belt Championships are in less than a week.”

Senior Hunter Green roared back with a 4-under par 68 to tie for seventh overall with a 145. Sophomore Brett Patterson had an even par round on Sunday to tie for 13th.

Jordan Jennings continued his solid play with a 73 in the final round to tie for 21st. Jennings had a 149 total.

Andrew Cho tied for 31st with a 151 while Brad Simons tied for 36th with a 152.

The Blue Raiders will have off until the Sun Belt Championships April 23-25 in Muscle Shoals, Ala.
