MADISON, Ill. -- The Omaha men's golf team posted the best 54-hole team score in school history to take second place at the Derek Dolenc Invitational at SIUE on Tuesday.
In the process, senior Kevin Gordon set two records including the lowest 54-hole score in school history.
The Mavericks closed with a final round team score of 285 (+1) to finish at 854 (+2), putting them just two over par. It was the second record set by the Mavericks this week after shooting a school record score of 280 in round one.
The previous record for a 54-hole team score was 870 at the ODU/OBX Intercollegiate at Old Dominion in 2016.
Gordon closed with a five-under round of 66, the lowest single player round in school history, to lead the Mavericks in scoring with a school-record total of 206 (-7). He put up five birdies and closed with an eagle on the par-five 18th to finish second in the 96-player field. He earned the three thanks to a pin-point three wood from the fairway on his second shot that left him only three feet from the hole.
Witchaypat Sinsrang tied for sixth overall with a score of 213 (E). He closed the tournament with a round of 73 (+2).
Nick Kagy as third on the team and tied for 24th with a 54-hole total of 218 (+5), including an even-par final round of 71. Kagy had six birdies in his round, all of which came after opening with a quadruple bogey on his opening hole.
