Murrels Inlet, S.C. – Team Canada’s Corey Conners has continued his torrid play of late, sharing medalist honours at the General Hackler Championship with Andrew Dorn of Coastal California.
Conners, a member of the Kent State Golden Flashes, finished at even par (75-69-72) and was the only player to score a round in the 60’s during the tournament. The 21-year-old is coming off a playoff win at the prestigious Jones Cup just last month.
The Listowel, Ont. native now sits at No. 25 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings (WAGR). He’s in the running for the Ben Hogan Award – given annually to the outstanding male collegiate golfer of the year in the U.S.
Taylor Pendrith, 22, shot 70 Tuesday to finish 1-over, in third place. His round was highlighted by an eagle on the par-5 2nd which he double-bogeyed in his first round. This is the second consecutive top 5 finish for the Richmond Hill, Ont. native and Kent State senior.
Collectively, Kent State finished in second place, two strokes back of champion Middle Tennessee State. The Golden Flashes are currently ranked No. 25 in NCAA Men’s Div I Golf. They tee-it-up again March 26th at the Floridian Collegiate.
