Feenstra is medalist at Mauni Lani Intercollegiate
Nov. 1, 2005
KOHALA COAST, Hawaii - Western Washington University's Tim Feenstra (Sr., Lynden) fired a final-round 2-under-par 70 to take medalist honors and the Vikings tied for third place in the team standings at the Mauna Lai Intercollegiate Men's Golf Tournament which concluded Tuesday at the Mauna Lani Resort North Course.
Western, No.5 in the latest Golf Coaches Association of America/NCAA Division II Top 25, shot a final-round 291 for a 54-hole total of 879, good for a third-place tie with host Hawaii-Hilo. The Vikings were fifth in the nine-team field after two rounds Monday.
No.6-rated Cal State Stanislaus won the team title with an 861 total (283), six strokes better than runner-up Sonoma State (289=867).
"We didn't have a bad round of golf today, but it wasn't a great round, not the kind of round we needed," said Western head coach Steve Card.
"The thing that killed us was shooting 303 in the second round. But we moved up a couple of spots today, so we're not too disappointed."
Feenstra, a first-team Golf Coaches Association of America All-American last season, trailed by one shot after two rounds Monday. He shot a 4-under 68 in the opening round and an even par 70 in the second.
"Tim Feenstra played a great event and I'm proud of him," Card said. "It's a big win and a well deserved victory for him."
Tying for second place at 211, one stroke behind Feenstra, were Ryan Thornberry (68) from Cal State Stanislaus and Jarin Todd from Sonoma State.
Western's Sean Packer (So., Sumner/Auburn-Riverside) placed 12th at 217 after shooting a team-best 69 on the final day. Luke Bennett (Sr., Bellingham/Sehome) tied for 15th at 220 (75), Tommy Bullock (Fr., Mukilteo/Kamiak) tied for 33rd at 233 (78) and Brett Ballman (Sr., Tacoma/Franklin Pierce) placed 42nd at 246 (77).
The tournament ended the fall portion of Western's schedule.
