The UConn men’s golf team will wrap up their fall season today when they host the Connecticut Cup at the Ellington Ridge Country Club. The two-day tournament will be the Huskies fifth and final of the fall season.
In the Huskies last tournament, they finished in seventh place out of 14 teams at the MacDonald Cup. Playing as an individual, junior Dane Rosa was the top finishing Husky, as he finished with a 4-over par 214 over the three rounds, good for a tie for 18th place in the 74-player field. Rosa’s second round score of 67 was the first sub-70 round of his collegiate career.
Sophomore Zach Zaback finished just one stroke behind Rosa, placing him in a tie for 21st place in the tournament. He finished with a 5-over par 215, including one of just five eagles during the tournament. One stroke behind Zaback was fellow sophomore Josh Flaherty, who finished with a 6-over par 216.
Also competing for the Huskies was freshman Eric Dietrich, who finished in a tie for 35th, junior captain Chris Wiatr, who finished in a tie for 45th, and sophomore Corey Birch, who finished in 65th place.
The University of Illinois finished in first place at the tournament, shooting a 33-under par and finishing 25 strokes ahead of second place Yale University.
