Head Coach Brown Prepares for Inaugural Golf Season by Maintaining a Competitive Edge

PIKESVILLE, Md. -- Head golf coach Hunter Brown competed in the Maryland Open this week at Woodholme Country Club in Pikesville, MD.

Brown fired rounds of 73-75 to make the cut and finished the event with a final round 75 to end in a tie for 27th out of the 120 player field.

Commenting on the three days Brown said, "I hit the ball well most of the tournament but wasn't able to get the putter going any of the three rounds. But it was a great tournament, on a great course, and I really enjoyed being out there."

Brown only made 5 birdies over the course of the three rounds and that kept him from recovering from the inevitable bogeys on the tricky layout of Woodholme Country Club, "Woodholme is a course that has a mix between scorable holes and holes that you are delighted just to make par on. I just wasn't able to take advantage of the easier holes and that kept me from getting under par."

Coach Brown counted the three days as additional learning experiences to help as he prepares for the arrival of the first Gopher golf teams next month, "Our players are going to have tournaments just like I had this week—where things aren't quite clicking for them. It's important for me to remember what that feels like and to be able to help them get the most out of whatever they have in each event. These three days will help me to do that."
