PLU Men’s Golf opened their first tournament play of the season at Saint Martin’s Invite at Olympia Country & Golf Club.
“It is a short narrow course with fast greens that have a lot of break,” said Senior Sevryn Modahl.
Modahl finished at 56th overall, he recorded a 76 on Friday and Sunday, but went into the clubhouse on Saturday with an 80.
Two-time All-Northwest Conference golfer, Justin Lee, continued his consistency on the links. On Friday, he posted a 75 on his scorecard, which was followed up by a 76 on Saturday. Lee would finish out his first performance of his senior year tied for 35th.
The biggest issue for the Lutes was not staying within themselves. It is easy for an athlete to try to do too much, on the contrary to playing their game. This can be an easy trap to fall into while golfing, trying to hit a miracle shot rather than to get out of a bad situation to get on the green.
“Everybody on the team, with myself include improving by just eliminating the unforced errors,” said Modahl.
Lute’s Men’s Golf will look to continue to improve from this last weekend’s tournament, as they play at the PLU Invitational starting on Saturday at the Home Course in DuPont.
