Golfers Open Spring with Big Victory at Wynlakes

The men's golf team chased down Methodist in the final round of the Wynlakes Wynternational on Tuesday to start their spring slate off with a huge victory. Considering the stout 8-team field included 7 of the Top 25 ranked teams in the nation, the win should go a long way towards securing the Petrels 13th straight trip to the NCAA's.

Trailing the Monarchs by one stroke on the final hole, sophomore Anthony Amodeo drilled a 12-foot birdie putt to pull the Petrels even with Methodist. With not enough daylight to complete a playoff, the Petrels scored the big win based on their Monday performance from their No. 5 golfer.

All five Petrel starters in the event placed in the Top 20 individually with Hayden Jones leading the way with a third place finish. Both Amodeo and Anthony Maccaglia tied for third overall while Eric Quinn earned a T-15th place result. Matt Rebitch rounded out the dominant Petrel performances by coming home in 18th place individually.
