GREENSBORO, N.C. - The Bridgewater College men's golf team shaved 10 strokes from their first round total and finished in 16th place at the O'Briant-Jensen Memorial Tournament on Tuesday.

The team turnaround was led by freshman A.J. Stouffer, who shaved eight strokes from his opening round to post a 2-over par total of 73. Stouffer played his first nine (the back nine at Sedgefield Country Club-Dye Course) yesterday at nine strokes over par, but played the same nine even on Tuesday.

Sophomore Jason Spaar dropped two shots in the second round, posting a 77. In an event when birdies were hard to come by, Spaar led the way for the Eagles, making five during the two rounds. He played the front nine on Tuesday at one over par.

Junior Ronald Uszenski birdied his final hole to shoot 79 in the second round and provide the third score for Bridgewater, followed by sophomore Brendan Draughn who posted 82.

Senior Michael Gruver shot 86 in his first visit to the challenging Dye Course at Sedgefield Country Club.

After nine holes it seemed the Eagles might jump several spots in the elite field at the Guilford event, but they dropped fifteen strokes in the final five holes and remained in 16th place despite improving by 10 strokes from the first round.

This tournament concluded the fall portion of the 2018-19 season and the Eagles will be back in action in March.
