Appalachian State Men’s Golf Finish Third at Wofford Invitational

One of only three schools in the 18-team field to post an under-par team total, App State Men’s Golf took third place with an 11-under score at the Wofford Invitational.

The Mountaineers had several golfers near the top of the individual leaderboard, with Lukas Jónssón tying for third place thanks to a 6-under total (70-70-70—210) and leading the tournament with 21 birdies over 54 holes at the Country Club of Spartanburg. He birdied his final two holes of the event to climb into a tie for third.

Ryan Marter and Justin Morgan tied for sixth place with 3-under totals, and Timothius Tirto Tamardi used a strong last 36 holes to tie for 21st place. Marter opened the event with a 3-under 69 before posting a pair of even-par rounds, highlighted by an eagle on the 15th hole Tuesday, and Morgan’s 213 came from rounds of 70, 72 and 71. He had 12 birdies over three rounds, including three during a front-nine 32 on Tuesday.

Tamardi had five birdies in a final-round 69, and Colin Browning posted three birdies in his final round.

App State finished only four shots behind co-champions Wofford and UNCW, which entered the final round with a 14-shot advantage and still led by 12 over the Mountaineers and Terriers about halfway through the final round. App State finished 11 shots ahead of the fourth-place team.

Wofford’s Cedric Otten shot a final-round 66 and won the individual title with a 10-under total — three shots ahead of Mercer’s Tobias Johnson and four shots ahead of Jónssón.
