ANDERSON, S.C. -- Catawba placed third among seven teams at the Anderson Invitational Men’s Golf Tournament in its season-opening event.  The two-day tournament concluded on Tuesday and was played at the 7,005-yard, Par-72 Cobb’s Glen Country Club. 

Senior Matt Hardman (Gettysburg, Penn./Gettysburg Area HS) led the Catawba Indians with a fourth-place finish.  Hardman had rounds of 75 and 72, finishing five shots back of medalist Mike Downy of Queens.  Downy shot a six-under-par 66 on Tuesday.

Senior Zach Griffis (Winston-Salem, N.C./Mt. Tabor HS) just missed a top 10, placing 11th.  He followed an opening 77 with a 73.  Senior Brian Donaldson (Clinton, N.C./Clinton HS) recorded a top 20 as he finished in 18th place on a 153 total.

Catawba moved up two spots on Tuesday after standing in fifth following Monday’s play.  The Indians had a 307 team total in the first round and a 299 on Tuesday.  Catawba’s 606 total was 17 shots behind Erskine.  Queens took runner-up honors, six shots better than the Indians.

Hardman led the field with 10 birdies during the tournament.  Freshman Dagur Ebenezersson (Reykjavik, ICELAND/Borgarholtsskoli HS) collected five birdies.  Hardman and Griffis were two of three golfers to play even par on the par-3s, while Hardman played the par-5s at two-under-par.

Catawba will next play in the Full Moon BBQ Invitational at the Timberline Golf Club in Calera, Ala., next Monday and Tuesday.
