The Bison men’s golf team competed at the Patriot League Championship, hosted by the U.S. Naval Academy, this past weekend, May 1-2. It was a 54-hole event, with 36 holes played on Saturday and the final 18 on Sunday. The course was played as a par 70 at 7,025 yards. “The weather was nice. It was a warm 70 degrees with some wind,” Jackson Bussell ’23 said.

As a team, the Bison held on to fourth place throughout the weekend. They had three rounds at 300, 311 and 304 for a total of 915. They were 49 strokes behind the winning team, Loyola Maryland. The best first round for the team was carded by Bussell with a 72, with second-best clinched by Blake Wisdom ’23 at 73; the best final round was Chris Tanabe’s ’21 even-par 70. 

Individually, Wisdom and Tanabe were neck-and-neck at the top within the Bison with three-day totals of 224 (T-11) and 226 (T-13), respectively. Bussell finished with a 235 (T-27) on the weekend. Jason Lohwater ’22 and Josh Holtschlag ’23 both were right behind with a 237 (T-33) and Jack Gardener ’22 with a 242 (39). 

Unfortunately for golf fans, the event served as a cap on this year’s season. Thankfully, next fall, the entire men’s team will return for another exciting year – with the notable exception of graduating senior Tanabe, who is headed to University of Maryland to continue his golf career and further his education.
