ANGOLA. IND. - Lourdes University's Sean McGuire (Twinsburg, Ohio/Twinsburg H.S.) and James Siebert (Toledo, Ohio/Bowsher H.S.) turned in the best six-hole best ball score on Friday afternoon as part of the Ken Venturi Invitational held at Zollner Golf Club in Angola, Ind.
Each school had three two-player teams that played six holes of best ball, six holes of alternate shot, and six holes of scramble. The three team scores made up the school's overall score.
"It's a unique format that I think all of the kids really enjoyed," head coach Scott Simon said after the tournament. "With Friday being the first day of the Ryder Cup, the guys all got to experience a little of each of the different types of competition."
McGuire and Siebert led the way for the Gray Wolves with a two-under par round of 69. They were honored for their best ball total of 21 over the six holes.
"Siebert has worked hard all year and I'm glad to see him have some success," Simon added. "McGuire has become our most consistent golfer all year and they made a good team today."
Jacob VanDyke (North Canton, Ohio/Hoover H.S.) and Jordan May (Salem, Ohio/United H.S.) added an even par round of 71 while Nick Flasco (Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio/Woodridge H.S.) and Corey Linser (Toledo, Ohio/Cardinal Stritch H.S.) added a round of 79 for Lourdes.
"Jordan's short game was very impressive today, especially his putted," Simon stated.
As a team the Gray Wolves finished in eighth place with a team total of 219, just two strokes out of sixth place. Owens Community College won the tournament at 193.
Lourdes will return to action next Friday with a tournament at Cleary. The event begins at 9 a.m. at Chemung Golf Club in Howell, Mich.
