Men’s Golf: Snow ends Irish competition in Virginia

Observer Staff Report | Tuesday, March 26, 2013


For the second day in a row, snow forced the C&F Bank Intercollegiate tournament officials to end play early. 

Notre Dame was unable to take the course as scheduled Monday due to inclement weather. 

Sunday the Irish golfers were able to finish their rounds despite the weather, and Notre Dame tied for 9th place out of the teams that finished their rounds

Monday’s round was cancelled before the Irish could begin, and Notre Dame’s second round of play will not be made up.

The unplayable conditions forced officials to constrain the tournament, held in Williamsburg, Va., to an 18-hole contest. 

The unique circumstances mean Notre Dame is finished with play in the tournament. The teams that did not complete play Sunday will finish play Wednesday and the results of the tournament will thereafter be determined.

Notre Dame finished the tournament with a score of 289, six strokes behind current leader James Madison. Junior Andrew Lane scored a 68 to lead the Irish and place third on the individual leaderboard at the conclusion of Sunday’s round.

Notre Dame will return to competition April 6 at the Irish Creek Collegiate tournament in Kannapolis, N.C.
