MAC Co-Men’s Golfers Of The Week
Matt Schneider, Bowling Green, Junior
Grand Rapids, Minn. (Grand Rapids)
Finish: T-1st (Won playoff over Ohio's Mlynarski)
Schneider earned his first career individual crown this past week as he carded a 214 (70-70-74) at the John Piper Intercollegiate to outlast a field of 75 golfers. He shared the honor of the low score with Ohio's John Mlynarski, but recorded a par compared to Mlynarski's bogey of the first playoff hole.
John Mlynarski, Ohio, Freshman
St. Michaels, Md.
Making his Bobcat debut at the John Piper Intercollegiate, John Mlynarski finished in a tie for first in the individual standings with a 54-hole total of 214 (-2), dropping the first playoff hole to Bowling Green’s Matt Schneider in the chase for the individual medal. Mlynarski, whose final tally equaled the 10th-best three-round score in program history, was one of just three golfers to break par for the entire event. He fired back-to-back rounds of 70 (-2) on the first day of play to earn a share of the lead after 36 holes. Mlynarski’s effort led the Bobcats to a final-round 289 and a final tally of 876 (+12), which tied for the 10th-best in school history. Ohio, which started the day one stroke off the pace, won the tournament by six strokes.
Mackenzie Hughes, Kent State, Freshman
Dundas, Ontario (Highland Secondary)
Playing in his first collegiate Tournament, Hughes led the Golden Flashes with a one-over 71 at the Maryland Intercollegiate. The freshman shot a 72 in round one, then posted an even-par 71 in round two as he gained seven spots in the field for a T-17 finish.
Andrew Frame, Northern Illinois, Junior
Manteno, Ill. (Manteno)
Fairway Club Invitational
Frame posted NIU's best score in each of his two rounds at the rain-shortened Fairway Club Invitational, hosted by the University of Nebraska. Frame's seventh place finish was seven strokes behind the tournament champion and helped the Huskies finish fourth as a team. The finish was Frame's best since the 2007 fall season.
