Golf: UConn golf places fifth behind Zaback's 10th-place finish
The UConn golf team was again led by sophomore Zach Zaback, who recorded his second top-10 finish in as many tournaments at the Colleton River Collegiate in Bluffton, S.C.
Zaback played the three rounds in six-over-par, 73-75-74-222, resulting in a three-way tie for 10th place out of 54 golfers from nine schools. The team finished fifth out of the nine, scoring 39-over-par collectively. Zaback had nine birdies during his three rounds and once again took advantage of the par fives, playing them in three-under-par.
The Huskies had another top-20 finisher in junior Chris Wiatr, who finished in a tie for 20th place by shooting a nine-over-par 77-72-76-225.
Sophomore Corey Birch finished in a tie for 30th place with a 14-over par 72-75-83-230, while freshman Eric Dietrich and sophomore John Flaherty both finished in a four-way tie for 41st place, shooting 82-73-80-235 and 75-79-81-235, respectively. Sophomore Cameron MacKay, who played as an individual, finished tied for 38th after he shot an 18-over-par 77-81-76-234.
Michigan State's Charlie Netzel won individual medalist honors at the tournament after shooting a one-under 215. Winthrop University won as a team, scoring 10-over-par collectively.
