SUFFOLK, Va. - The Bridgewater men's golf team, represented by its B team in the Marlins Invitational, made large strides on Sunday dropping 26 strokes from their team score in the final round.

The team's resurgence was led by freshman Brendan Draughn who played his way steadily to an 82, a ten-shot improvement from his first round. "I got off to another tough start, but held it together today," said Draughn.

Freshman Jacob Czerwinski was the most consistent Eagle over the two days, but he also dropped three strokes on his way to an 84 in the second round. His two day total of 171 paced the Bridgewater team this weekend.

Freshman Matthew Sengul followed the team trend and shaved eight strokes off his first round score. His score of 85 in the second round gave him a two-day total of 178.

Sophomore Hayden Moore also got in on the action following his first round of 94 with an 88.

Junior Michael Gruver was en route to a lower score when he had three balls out of bounds on the tenth hole. Gruver still dropped one shot when he posted 92.

The second squad's team total of 339 was a large improvement and even better than a few of the team scores from starting lineups at other schools. "It was great to see the guys learning from the first round and getting back into a competitive flow," said head coach John Rogers. "Sadly, some of the guys have not had many opportunities to show their talent and it was great to see them back in action."

The Marlins Invitational marked the end of the 2017-18 regular season, with only the ODAC Championship remaining.
