Last year he was the conference freshman of the year and Port Lambton’s Brendan Seys is following up with even more impressive form in his sophomore season at Wayne State University.
This past Sunday he helped his team to a team win at the Bucknell Invitational and nabbed the medalist honours at the same time.
Seys toured the Bucknell Golf Course in 135 (68-67), then made a par on the second playoff hole to win the individual honours, just as he had done the week before.
Seven of Seys eleven rounds this season have been under par and his two-day total of 135 is the lowest 36-hole mark in program history. It was his third individual victory of the season, while also having an additional top-three finish to his name.
“We really didn’t have it today for most of the day but we really focused our efforts at the end and played solid golf the last three or four holes to get the win,” said Coach Mike Horn. “Brendan Seys continues to play amazing and we had good contributions from Crawford McKinlay both days shooting a 139. We still have a lot of work to do to play at the level you want during the Spring but to win a D1 tournament against some very good competition in Bucknell, Fordham and St. Francis of Pennsylvania just to name a few was impressive. The quality of golf was excellent and we are thrilled to come home with another win!”
