Saints Golf Finished Fourth in Westminster Tournament

Posted: Updated:

The Carroll College golf teams finished fourth in both the men's and women's competition in blustery winds at the Talons Cove Golf Course in Saratoga Spring, Utah, Tuesday.

The tournament was started earlier than scheduled to try to beat the anticipated wind but the early start did little to help the situation. The national weather service had a high-wind warning for the area and it was justified.

"We've played in some really difficult conditions but this was pretty crazy," head coach Bennett MacIntyre said. "It was five hours of continuous wind. The wind was at 20 miles per hour when we got to the course and it picked up throughout the day. By the end of the round it was sustained wind of 40-50 miles per hour. My hat is off to my players for sticking it out."

The Carroll men took fourth place with a three round total of 933, 69 strokes over par. Colin Gunstream was 13 over for the tournament to finish 13th. On the women's side, the Saints tallied a two-round 701. Jackie Mee took sixth place with a 161, 17 strokes over par.

"Both seniors, Jackie and Colin, played well. You can tell that they really want to finish off their careers strong," MacIntyre said. "As a team we are doing a lot of good things. But we have a lot of work to do to between now and the conference championship."

Freshmen Rachel Miles had a great performance for the Saints with a 172, good enough for 12th place, right behind her was Lexi Pyette in 13th place with a 174. The Saints now prepare for the Frontier Conference tournament in Phoenix on April 28-29.
