The Radford University men’s golf team collectively shot 7 under par and took home the title at the Highlander Invitational at the Pete Dye River Course Monday.
The Highlanders dominated the top five spots on the individual leaderboard, led by Hayden Miller who shot 69-69 for a -6 as an individual. He finished as the runner-up behind Appalachian State’s Jake Lane (-7).
Bryce Corbett and Tyler Hull each tied for third at -3, shooting an identical 70-71 on the day. Hunter Duncan joined them under par with a -2. Ryan Neil (+1, T-12th) and Nicholas Taliaferro (+6, T-23rd) rounded out the scoring for the champs.
Like Miller, Patrick Gareiss played an excellent two rounds as an individual, shooting 72-71 for a -1. Bobby Dudeck (E, T-10th), Andrew Kennedy (+4, T-15th), Channging Blevins (+6, T-23rd), and Daniel Goode (+9, T-33rd) all competed as individuals as well.
Dudeck led all players with nine birdies while Corbett and Miller were right behind with eight each. Hull and Kennedy both sank Eagles, tying them for the best results on Par-5 holes with a combined -6.
Miller’s secret weapon was par 4 holes where he easily led all players with a -4.
