The Wildcat golf team finished in third place in the Bruce Williams Invitational golf tournament this weekend, another solid performance for the season.
“We played pretty well, given the conditions of the course,” said ACU golfer Morgan Johnson.
After the first of three rounds, the ‘Cats sat in seventh place, but back-to-back 293 rounds moved them into a strong third.
“We probably could have putted better,” Johnson said. “But overall, it was a good comeback.”
Tournament host St. Mary’s took home the victory, and in-state rival Dallas Baptist finished second. The Wildcats finished only three strokes behind DBU as a team.
Individually, the Wildcats did not disappoint. Although they did not bring home the individual trophy as in the last two tournaments, the terrific twins, Alex and Adam Carpenter, still made a strong showing. Alex finished ninth, while Adam finished 22nd.
“They are two of the best golfers I have seen at their age,” Johnson said.
Adam won the Coody West Texas Intercollegiate Tournament two weeks ago, and Alex won the Territory Classic last week. Cyril Bouniol split the Carpenters, finishing in a tie for 16th overall. Other Wildcats who placed were Tyler Sheppard, Morgan Johnson and Kyle Dickerson, who tied for 29th, 53rd and 73rd, respectively.
The Wildcats have yet to win as a team, but they will have one more chance at a W in the Queens University of Charlotte Invitational at the TPC Sawgrass Course in Ponte Verde, Fla. The tournament, which takes place Oct. 12-13, will close out the fall season.
