The Amherst men’s golf team competed at the Trinity College invitational this past weekend Saturday, April 18 and 19. The Jeffs placed third among the four teams at the tournament.

Host Trinity’s “A” squad took first place with a combined score of 621 with their “B” team coming in second place with a 641 two-day total. Amherst followed closely behind in third with a 655 score, and Wesleyan finished in last with a 685 total.

James Line ’16 led Amherst scoring a 78 on day one and then following that performance up with a score of 82 on the second day of play. His two day total of 160 placed him at eighth overall in the tournament.

Senior Jarvis Sill was just three strokes behind his teammate, earning a 163 two day total with an 81 on the first day of play and 82 on day two.

Line’s classmate Brandon Brown posted an 83 on both days to earn a spot as the Jeffs’ third finisher.

Sophomore Nick Kafker and first-year Dan Langa rounded out the top performers for the Jeffs earning scores of 173 and 175 respectively.

“After the previous week’s tournament experience under our belts, we all went in to this week having a little more confidence,” Langa said. “It is fair to say that we underperformed but all of us had stretches where we played some good golf.”

The team will travel to Wesleyan to compete at the Little Three Championships this Wednesday, April 29.
