SARATOGA, NY - On a crisp Sunday morning at Ballston Spa Country Club, the Ephs grinded to a 3rd place finish at Skidmore's Tim Brown Invitational.

After struggling to an opening round 80 yesterday, sophomore Wyatt Khosrowshahi bounced back brilliantly with a 1-under 70. Khosrowshahi's round included 4 birdies, 3 bogeys, and the rest pars. Khosrowshahi played the par-5's 3-under on Sunday, continuing on the team's strong par-5 scoring from Saturday.

Fellow sophomore Beau David delivered another solid round with a 2-over 73. David's round was highlighted by an eagle at the par-5 3rd that took him to 1-under, a score he held until an unfortunate triple bogey at the par-4 12th, which gave the team trouble all weekend. Not to be deterred, David bounced back to play the rest of his round level par to get in the house 2-over.

Junior Ben Beiers managed to add a 3-over 74 to the Ephs' cause. Beiers did an excellent job of minimizing mistakes, avoiding double bogeys all day and making only 5 bogeys. A pair of par-5 birdies at the 3rd and 13th holes left Beiers 3-over at the end of his day.

Junior captain Sam Goldenring had a good round going, playing his first 14 holes in even-par, but Goldenring struggled to play his final 4 holes in 5-over en route to a 5-over round of 76. Goldenring endured a brutal break at the par-3 17th, where he spun a ball back from the green into a stream in front of the green, taking triple bogey on the hole.

Freshman David Brewer struggled all day for a spark, eventually carding an 8-over 79.

Goldenring's 76 left the Ephs with a Sunday total of 293 (+10), 1 stroke better than their opening round 294 (+9), and a two day total of 587 (+19). The Ephs were beaten out by NESCAC foes Trinity and Middlebury, who finished in a tie for first with two day totals of 573 (+5), with Trinity taking the title by nature of their impressive final round total of 283 (-1).

In the individual event, Trinity's Will Rosenfield finished on top with 137 (-5), after winning a playoff against Middlebury's Reid Buzby, who finished with the same two-day score. Ben Beiers finished with a two-day total of 145 (+3), earning a tie for 8th, and Beau David and Sam Goldenring each finished with 146 (+4), and a tied-11th place finish.

The Ephs look forward to defending their home course at the Williams Spring Invitational this coming weekend.
