Appalachian State Men’s Golf End West Virginia Event in Eighth

With a 3-under 69 from sixth-place finisher Herman Huus highlighting a stellar final round from the entire team, App State Men’s Golf placed eighth in a 16-team field Tuesday at the Mountaineer Invitational hosted by West Virginia.

Alex Martin and Sverrir Haraldsson had 1-under 71s in the final round, while Addison Beam and Colin Browning posted even-par 72s as the Mountaineers recorded a 5-under 283 — the third-best final-round score at the Pete Dye Golf Club.

Huus, who opened the tournament with a hole-out eagle from the fairway, tied for sixth with a 3-under total of 213 thanks to rounds of 73, 71 and 69. He accounted for four of App State’s 24 birdies Tuesday, with all four occurring during a 3-under 33 over his final nine holes.

The Mountaineers finished with a 26-over total (300-307-283—890) while improving their score by 24 strokes from Round 2, which included a weather delay, to Round 3. West Virginia’s 18-under total gave it a 28-shot advantage over runner-up Marshall, and WVU’s Carson Kammann won the individual title by one stroke with a 10-under total.

Beam tied for 29th at 6 over (73-77-72—222), and Martin tied for 42nd at 10 over (76-79-71—226).

The Mountaineers wrap up the season next week at the Sun Belt Championship tournament, which begins Monday in Madison, Miss.
