Tiger Golf enjoys success in 2011

Mike Dowd ’11 won the Camp Lejeune medallist trophy.
Hampden-Sydney golf has had a solid spring, competing well in all five tournaments, including a first-place finish at the Camp Lejeune Invitational. The Tigers started with a third-place finish in the Pine Needles Invitational, behind junior Ronnie Fultz’s eighth-place individual finish.

The Tigers followed that by placing fourth in the Marlin Invitational and 14th in the Jekyll Island Collegiate Tournament, which featured 29 teams, 22 ranked nationally in the top 50.

The golfers then won the Scarlet Division at the Camp Lejeune Invitational, with senior Mike Dowd winning medalist honors. Hampden-Sydney took that momentum to a third-place finish in the ODAC Championship. Guilford, ranked number one in the nation, won the event.

Hampden-Sydney placed three golfers on All-ODAC teams—Fultz and freshman Rick O’Connell with Second Team honors and Dowd with Honorable Mention.
