The Lindenwood men’s golf team will play its final round of the third match of the season today Sept. 19 at the Northeastern State Men’s Golf Classic in Muskogee, Oklahoma. This match will be played at the Northeastern State Muskogee Golf Club.
The last tournament Lindenwood competed in resulted in a 12th-place finish, while the Muskogee RiverHawks finished tied for 15th place. Yente Van Doren finished tied for 17th place in the previous tournament, the best on Lindenwood’s team. The best place for the RiverHawks was tied for 48th. which was Bryce Harper. This is the first tournament that will be played out of state for the Lions.
According to the MIAA website, Lindenwood is in 6th place in its conference while Northeastern State is in 9th place. Along with being 6th in the conference, Van Doren is in the top 10 of all players.
“I am going to have a very tough time picking the top five players to play,” head coach Derek Schaub said.
Schaub said one person he is certain will be playing is Van Doren. He also said he is very pleased with everyone on the team and that they are showing very good promise.
Even though this tournament is not an MIAA tournament, Northeastern State is still in Lindenwood’s conference, so it will show how Lindenwood stacks up against another team in its conference.
