USF wins first tournament by 27 strokes
The USF men’s golf team won The Invitational at The Ocean Course to start off the season Sunday afternoon.
USF shot 14 under par for the tournament, including four under par Sunday. The Bulls defeated 13 other teams over the weekend and shot 27 strokes less than second place Georgia State.
Junior Chase Koepka entered Sunday tied for first place. He was able to shoot 71 (-1) on the day to beat Bright Julamool of Western Carolina.
USF also had two other players finish in the top 10 of the tournament. Sophomore Rigel Fernandes finished in a tie for sixth at -4 for the tournament.
Senior Trey Valentine rounded out the top ten, shooting +1 for the tournament. Valentine could have finished much higher if he hadn’t carded a +3 for the second round.
USF will play in its next tournament next Monday when the team travels to Toledo, Ohio to play in the Inverness Intercollegiate Invitational.
