Midway men’s golf cards third-place finish at Asbury Invitational

The Midway men’s golf team returned to Gary Brewer Jr. Golf Course in

Lexington Tuesday, March 30, to play the final round of the Asbury

Invitational.

The Midway ‘A’ team didn’t fare as well as they did in the first round

but managed to fire a 299 to finish with a 595 overall, which earned

them a third-place finish. Midway’s ‘B’ team, meanwhile, improved by 18

shots with a 304 to finish with a 626 overall in fifth place.

River States Conference foe and the host of the tournament, (Asbury,

Ky.) took second with a 592 (294-298), while Tennessee Wesleyan went

wire-to-wire taking home the top spot in the final team standings with a

587 (291-296).

Leading the way and earning All-Tournament team honors for the Blue and

Gold was the duo of William Molen (Frankfort) and Garrett Smith (Mt.

Sterling).

Molen fired a 2-under 70 in his final round for a 36-hole total of

1-under 143 as he finished second, while Smith played some of the best

golf of his Midway career over the two-day stretch, finishing with a

1-over 145 in a tie for fourth place.

Finishing just outside the top five in sixth place was Elliott Smith.

The senior from Shelbyville, Tenn. improved by two shots on Tuesday

shooting an even par 72 to finish with a 2-over 146.

Up next closing in a tie for 14th place was the duo of Corbin Kirksey

(Monticello) and Camron Turner (Hazard). Kirksey shot a 78 on Tuesday

and Turner fired an 80 as they each posted 36-hole totals of 153.

Chase Taylor (Winchester) and Logan Conn (Prestonsburg) also shot

identical scores of 156 and finished in a tie for 21st, while Ethan

Spalding (Lebanon) and Mason Mastropaolo (Moores Hill, Ind.) showed two

of the best improvements of any golfer in the tournament.

Spalding made a 16-shot improvement moving up 11 spots in the final

standings as he played the second round at even par to finish with a

160. Mastropaolo, meanwhile, fired an 80 in his final round – a 12 shot

improvement – to finish with a 172 overall.

Benjamin Wood (Union) was the final Eagle in action as he collected a

two-day total of a 182 (88-94).

After playing in tournaments the last four weeks, the Eagles, will host

the Midway Eagle Invitational at Frankfort Country Club on April 12-13.
