The Ohio men's golf team finished the Wexford Plantation Intercollegiate Tuesday finishing, as the team in last place out of 18 teams. The Bobcats shot 942 as a team, shooting 63 strokes over the tournament winners Georgia Southern, who shot 15 strokes over par.

Ohio's best golfer was once again senior Byron Firestone, who finished the event at 232 strokes and tied for 46th. The team as a whole shot worse in the second and third round than they did in the first, as the team's stroke average increased from 76.8 strokes in the first round to 80.7 over the second and third round. This influx of strokes over the rounds led to the Bobcats dropping from ninth to last place.

Trey Valentine from South Florida took the overall first place, as he shot 212 through three rounds with his best score being 73 in the second.

The Bobcats will now travel back to Athens where they will stay until March 10 when they travel to Pinehurst, N.C. for their next tournament.
