ANGOLA, IND.-- The Trine men's golf team placed second in the AC EDDY Invitational, held Wednesday afternoon at Zollner Golf Course.
The Thunder shot a five-over 293 as a team. Connor Dwyer (Coldwater, Mich./Coldwater) fired a one-under 71 to finish in a tie for fourth overall. That score for Dwyer marked his lowest-scoring round of the season. Corey Bremigan (Russia, Ohio/Russia) shot an even-72 to finish second among Thunder golfers and in a tie for ninth overall. Harrison Long and Brandon Hoelzer earned individual medalist honors, each shooting a 68 (4-) to pace Owens Community College to the team championship.
