Marquette men’s golf finished 10th (280-283-295-858, 6-over-par) out of 17 participating teams Sunday afternoon at the Mason Rudolph Championship in Franklin, Tennessee.

Seniors Oliver Farrell and Austin Kendziorski led the Golden Eagles, tying for 11th individually at 5-under-par.

The Golden Eagles were led by seniors Oliver Farrell and Austin Kendziorski, each finishing tied for 11th (67-69-72-208, 5-under-par), respectively.

Kendziorski (66-66-76-208, 5-under-par) stood in first place at the end of the second day, but 10 extra strokes cost him an impressive individual outing. The Wisconsin-native shot 5-over-par in his third and final round.

Freshman Tyler Leach and sophomore Hunter Eichhorn had unusually poor performances. Leach tied for 38th place (69-73-73-215, 2-over-par), and Eichhorn tied for 42nd place ((71-71-74-216, 3-over-par).

It was a complete opposite performance for the sophomore standout, as Eichhorn never shot under-par in any of the three rounds this weekend. He placed tied for sixth (71-71-71-213, 3-under-par) in the Desert Mountain Intercollegiate just a few weeks ago.

Matt Murlick and Matthew Bachmann finished near the very bottom of the pool, posting tied for 75th (78-70-76-224, 11-over-par) and tied for 84th (73-78-77-228, 15-over-par) performances.

Head coach Steve Bailey and Marquette now look ahead to the ASU Thunderbird Invitational this coming weekend as the team travels to Phoenix, Arizona. The two-day event starts on Friday morning and is the final invitational prior to the BIG EAST Championship.
