New Haven, Conn. – The Robert Morris University men's golf team saved its best for last, blitzing The Course at Yale for a two-over par 282 (+2) in the final day of competition at the 2015 NCAA Men's Golf Tournament New Haven Regional.
The Colonials final round score was one stroke off the team record of 281 while the three-round total of 879 is tied for team's second-lowest score ever at a 54-hole event.
No. 16 South Florida bested the field by 14 strokes en route to first-place with an 826 total.
San Diego State finished second at 840 followed by #20 Oklahoma State (842), #5 Vanderbilt (844) and #7 LSU (849) in the advancing positions. Robert Morris finished 13th in the New Haven field with an 879 on the par 70, 6,803-yard course.
Junior Dan Maier finished the event as the Colonials leader carding a 216 total that left him in a tie for 37th overall. Starting on the back nine with the rest of the squad, he recorded a pair of birdies that put him one over par.
Maier, a Penn-Trafford graduate, polished off the front nine at even par to finish out the tournament with a 71 and give him the fifth-lowest 54-hole number in team history. It was the best score of his three-year career.
