The Ohio University Men’s golf team struggled at the John Piper Intercollegiate today at Bowling Green's Stone Ridge Golf Club. Yet, all was not lost, as the Bobcats got a glimmer of hope from senior Paul Grauer.

Ohio finished its final round with a total of 290 strokes, their best round of the tournament. The Bobcats placed eighth out of ten teams at the tournament, tallying a total of 919.  

Grauer turned in the team’s best individual round of the event in his final round, as he concluded the day with a six-under-par 66.

Grauer’s masterful performance in his final round vaulted him into third place in the individual rankings for the tournament.

The tournament was won by the host, Bowling Green, as they edged out Loyola (IL) in the second hole of a playoff round.

Both Bowling Green and Loyola finished the 54 round tournament with a score of 892 strokes, forcing the playoff.

Although Loyola may have lost the team title to Bowling Green, the individual champion was Loyola’s Alex Cusumano, who finished with a tournament stroke total of 216.

The next time Ohio returns to the links will be at the school’s very own event, The Bobcat Open.

The one day event will be held on Oct. 3 in Worthington, Ohio at The Lakes Golf Course.

Grauer and the Bobcats look to build on the promise they showed in the final day at the John Piper Intercollegiate and represent Ohio well at their home event.
