At the Columbia Invitational on Sept. 26 and 27, the men’s golf team finished in seventh place out of a nine team field. The Bison turned in a score of 324 on the final day to give them a 941 for the tournament, with Daniel Levin ’18 leading the team with a 228.

Levin tied for 12th place individually after a strong showing on the second day of the tournament, while D.J. Magee ’17 had a particularly strong performance on the first day. Magee wrapped up day one tied for third place, but fell to T-14 after the final round.

“If you look at our individual results, we are all capable of putting up good scores, and it’s just a matter of doing that at the same time,” Levin said.

The first two rounds on day one were the Bison’s stronger showing, as they ended the day in fifth place overall. Magee led the team with an impressive pair of 73s, only two over par. Just four shots separated Magee from the tournament leader on the first day of competition.

Peter Scialabba ’15 and Levin finished the first round with a 71 and 74, respectively. Overall, the Bison posted a team score of 305 and 312 in each of the first two rounds. The final round proved to be more difficult for the Bison. Levin led the team with a 75, just four over par. He finished the tournament with a 74-79-75.

“After a tough final round, I think our team has done some soul searching and come up with some solid ways to improve our results,” Magee said.

Host Columbia came out victorious at the Invitational. Hofstra finished in second, eight shots behind.

The Bison continue with their next competition on Oct. 5 and 6, the Binghamton Invitational in Apalachin, N.Y.
