Golf

For the second consecutive year, golfer Mikey McGinn returned from The Master’s Invitational as the tournament champion. An opening round of a 6-under 66 was not only a personal best, but the second lowest round in CLU history. After shooting a 77 during the second 18-holes he came back in the final round to card a 1-under 71 to finish with a 2-under 214 in the 54-hole tournament. McGinn led the Kingsmen to a second place finish in the team standings.
