Menís Golf Finishes Play at The McLaughlin

NEW YORK - The Columbia men's golf team completed competition at The McLaughlin tournament Sunday afternoon. The Lions finished the 54-hole tournament in 15th place.

Playing at the Bethpage State Park Red Course, Columbia was led by Jordan Lee. The junior from Tarzana, Calif. finished the tournament in a tie for 31st, carding a three-round score of 217 (73-72-72). Harrison Shih came in five spots back in a tie for 36th (74-79-65-218). Shih shot a third-round score of 65, which equaled Michael Hebert from Auburn's second round score for lowest round at The McLaughlin and is one shot shy of the equaling the Columbia single-round record.

Michael Yiu played his best golf in the second round, carding a par-70, before registering a 78 in the final round to finish tied for 55th (75-70-78-229). Andrew Kim also shot a 78 in the third round to complete the weekend in a tie for 76th (76-75-78-229). Ford Fischer rounded out the Columbia line-up, shooting a 79 each of the last two rounds to finish in 78th (72-79-79-230).

Columbia (294-296-293-883) finished two strokes back of last season's tournament champion, West Florida, while Auburn won the event and had the top-two individual finishers.

The Lions will return to action Friday, Sept. 21, as Columbia plays host to the 9th Annual Jack Rohan Alumni Golf Tournament at the Tuxedo Club.
