CCU men’s golf settles for 13th-place finish in San Diego

The Coastal Carolina men’s golf team placed 13th in the 15-team San Diego Intercollegiate, played at the 7,033-yard, par 72 San Diego Country Club. The Chanticleers posted a 54-hole score of 930 (310-315-305) over the two-day event.

The field, featuring seven top 50 teams in the nation of which four are ranked among the nation’s top five, was led by champion Washington (284-299-287=870). The fifth-ranked Huskies defeated ninth-ranked Southern California by seven strokes and third-ranked UCLA by 14.

For the third time this season, Sebastian Soderberg led the Chanticleer contingent, tying for 40th. He carded rounds of 76-78-75 for a total of 13-over par 229. The junior did post 11 birdies over the two days, the sixth-best production in the field. Soderberg closed his second round Tuesday morning with two bogeys and a double. However, he rebounded to start his third round with four pars. Later, he birdied the par 5 eight and closed his round with a five pars for his three-over 75.

Winegardner opened the event with a seven-over 79. He bounced back in the second round with three birdies and would post a three-over 72.  He also had three birdies in round three, but a double bogey on the par four fifth and a bogey on his final hole, the par four 15th, led to a five-over 77. The senior tied for 48 with a three-round total of 231.

Freshman Peter Valasek tied for 62nd, carding rounds of 76-82-78 for a total of 236. He had no birdies in his second round for an 82. He started his third round with a bogey and double bogey, but was just two over the rest of the way for his six-over 78.

Kevin Vanden Heuvel and Ben Wheeler each tied for 68th with a 23-over par score of 239. Vanden Heuvel shot rounds of 79-80-80, while Wheeler turned in rounds of 81-83-75. Wheeler had the most consistent final round with 12 pars. He birdied his first hole of the third round, the par four 17th, before posting a double bogey on the 18th. He finished his round with the 11 pars, adding three bogeys and two birdies for a 75.

Up next for Coastal Carolina is the annual John Hayt Collegiate, hosted by North Florida, Feb. 27-28. The team will be making its second trip to Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., this spring, but the Hayt Collegiate will be played at Sawgrass Country Club. Coastal opened the spring portion of its schedule playing the Sea Best Invitational at the PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass.
