The Northern Kentucky men’s golf team broke its tie with Fort Wayne in order to secure eighth-place outright during the final round of competition in the Dayton Flyers Invitational on Tuesday.
· NKU and Fort Wayne entered the final round of competition deadlocked at 606 each, but the Norse fired a 299 that was three-strokes better than the Mastodons to lock up eighth.
· After having a stretch of eight-straight rounds with scores of 300 or better snapped in its last tournament, Northern Kentucky posted two rounds of 300 or better in this week’s event.
· Miami (Ohio) claimed the team title with an 860 (+8) three-round total.
· Jackson Frame continued to lead the Norse in the final round, firing a 1-over par 72 to finish tied for 14th.
· Frame carded five birdies on the day, including three in a six-hole stretch on the back nine.
· Ty Debonis and Logan Gamm each carded rounds of 4-over. Debonis climbed up into a share for 42nd, while Gamm moved up to 47th.
· Freshman Jacob Vrolijk may have had the individual highlight of the day when he carded an eagle of the par-4 ninth.
