HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla.-Parker Mitas stared down the hole. In what could be defined as the biggest tournament of his young collegiate career, the freshman’s bid to reach round three at the NCAA tournament came down to a single playoff hole against Gustavus Adolphus’ Jacob Pederson. And he proved that his remarkable poise was very much a strength, coming up clutch, as the last player on UMHB’s five-man team with an opportunity to advance to Thursday’s action.
GRANBURY, Texas- It did not seem like the race for the ASC men’s golf individual title could get any closer as the back nine of Sunday’s round three approached. And then it did. UMHB’s Andrew Baucum and Concordia’s Ben Constancio were tied through 18 holes, forcing a sudden-death playoff between the tournament’s two leaders. It took just one hole to decide the champion, as Baucum recorded a par to defeat Constancio, and claim his first ASC individual crown.
