Men’s Golf Wins Gettysburg Fall Invitational; Goulding Posts Lowest Round in Program History

Thursday, September 29, 2011
Gettysburg, Pa. – Newcomer John Goulding posted the best individual score in program history as the Marymount University’s men’s golf team put together one of its best team performances ever en route to winning the Gettysburg Fall Invitational on Thursday. Goulding shot a 69, two strokes better than the Saints’ previous best, while the Saints shot 310 as a team.

Battling windy and soggy conditions, Goulding won the event by six strokes and was the only player to shoot under par. His 69 was two strokes better than Marymount previous low held by former standout Kevin Thomsen since 2006.

Two other Saints shot under 80 in the victory with Peter Johns carding a 78 and Brad Johnson finishing right behind him at 79. Johns finished the day tied for ninth while Johnson was tied for 13th.

Closing out Marymount’s scoring, Thomas Cave shot an 84 to tie for 29th place. Mark Anthony Curtis rounded out the participation, finishing tied for 33rd with an 87.

Marymount (310) won the tournament by five strokes over Penn State-Harrisburg (315), followed closely behind by host Gettysburg (317) and Capital Athletic Conference foe Stevenson (319). McDaniel (324), Susquehanna (328) and York (Pa.) (329) were on the next tier of finishers while Keystone (341), York’s B squad (360) and Lebanon Valley (380) rounded out the competition. Dickinson did not compete enough players to earn a team score.

The Saints return to action on Monday at the Lebanon Valley Invitational.
