HILLSBOROUGH, NJ – The Rutgers men’s golf team recorded its best finish of the fall season, placing second in the inaugural Rutgers-Seton Hall Golf Invitational with a team score of 315. The Invitational, held at the par-72 Royce Brook Golf Club’s West Course, was shortened to one round after inclement weather forced the cancellation of the tournament’s first round on Friday.

Campbell won the tournament with a aggregate score of 307, eight strokes ahead of the Scarlet Knights.

Junior Brian Whitman (Blairstown, NJ) carded a three-over-par 75 to finish second behind Campbell’s Ulf Hedland, who shot par for the tournament. Freshman Michael Kosup (Flemington, NJ) finished in a tie for third overall, shooting a 76 (+4) on Saturday. Junior Brent Pittman (Montvale, NJ) tied for 14th overall with a score of 80 for the tournament. Sophomore Erick Morales (Bayamon, Puerto Rico) shot an 84 on Saturday to finish tied for 32nd. Senior Michael Michel (Attleboro, MA) placed 43rd in the tournament with an 85.

Competing individually in the tournament were junior Steven Peterscek (Milltown, NJ), senior Eric Schecterman (Manalapan, NJ) and sophomore Jason Bataille (South Plainfield, NJ). Peterscek tied for 16th overall with an 81. Just one shot behind, Bataille finished in a tie for 20th overall, shooting 82. Tying for 23rd overall, Schechterman carded an 83.

The men will return to action at the Temple Galloway Invitational in Atlantic City, NJ, Mon.-Tues., Oct. 28-29.
