The Master’s College Fall Invite concluded earlier today with TMC, the host of the tournament, finishing seven shots off the lead at Robinson Ranch Golf Club. The Mustangs posted a team score of 882 which put them in third place. Point Loma barely edged out Cal State San Marcos in a playoff to take first place.
The Mustangs played well, but there was a slight bit of inconsistency that kept them from taking the top spot in the tournament.
“We’re just continuing to grow,” said Coach Semelsberger of his team's play. “It’s disappointing because you want to win your own tournament, but we always praise God though.”
The team had a great chance Sunday night to share the gospel with visiting teams involved in the tournament. Of his teams character, Coach Semelsberger said, “I think we did a good job of backing up our words with our actions.” Character and displaying Christ to their fellow competitors is a big priority for TMC’s golf team.
The top scoring leaders for Master’s were Thane Ringler and Michael Reitz. Ringler shot 218 over the three round tournament, and Michael Reitz posted a score of 219. Those two scores were six and seven shots out of first place respectively.
“Overall, I did fairly well. I had a couple bad swings which lead to a higher second round score, and there are always improvements to be made,” said Reitz of his performance.
Needless to say, the Mustangs are looking to perform even better as they travel to The Golf Club of California in Fallbrook, California, which is where the CSU San Marcos Fall Classic will be played from November 6-8.
“We are hoping to recover and refocus over the next few days so we can go play well at San Marcos,” said Ringler.
