Men's golf beats Charleston Southern by 10 shots in dual match

April 13, 2008

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The JU men's golf team went through its final preparation for next week's Atlantic Sun Conference championship on Sunday, defeating Charleston Southern by 10 shots in a head-to-head match at Hidden Hills Country Club.

Junior Christian Martin led the Dolphins with rounds of 69 and 71 to finish at four-under par and finish with the lowest score in the match.

"Everyone played well today," Martin said. "I was able to give myself a lot of birdies chances and made a lot of putts today."

JU opened the match with a 297 to take a five-shot lead after the morning 18, amid rainy conditions. The Dolphins improved by two shots in the afternoon, shooting a 295 to finish off the 10 stroke win.

Freshman Gavin St. John Frost had the second best score for the Dolphins, shooting rounds of 77 and 73 to finish at six-over par.

Senior Kipp Henritzy carded a 75 in the morning, scrambling for pars throughout the round, and posted a 76 in the afternoon to finish at 151, seven-over par. Freshman Tim Adams equaled Henritzy's final score after a 76 in the morning and a 75 in the afternoon.

Freshman Stephen Healy struggled early in both rounds but was able to battle back in each round, shooting 79 and 77 to finish at 12-over par, 156. Sophomore Keith Spence shot an 85 in the morning but bounced back with a 77 in the afternoon to shoot 18-over par, 162.

The Dolphins will continue to battle in qualifying rounds to determine who will represent JU at the A-Sun Championship. Three spots are on the line as Justin Jones and Matt Kleinrock are already on the team after their strong finishes of late.
