The Canisius golf team teed off last weekend at the Cornell/Temple Fall Invitational Tournament held at the 1912 Club in Plymouth Meeting, PA. The tournament was originally set for the end of August before weather forced a postponement.
The Griffs finished the two day tournament tied in 14th place, shooting a 309 as a team. Canisius’ efforts were highlighted by Ryan Edholm’s impressive 36 hole performance.
“You start thinking too much, but you have to keep it simple, hit the ball, chase the ball and repeat,” said Edholm.
The sophomore penciled in a 68 (-2) on Friday which is the lowest score of his collegiate career and followed with a 71 (+1) on Saturday. The 138 (-1) total is not only the best Edholm’s ever shot in a 36 hole tournament, but in fact the best any active griff has shot in 36 holes as well.
This impressive outing was good enough to give him third, his best placing in college. “I played okay the week before at Colgate, but this week the putts that should've fell this weekend, did fall.”
Edholm looks to create a spark for the young Griffs team who will be back on the road this weekend where they'll travel to Olean to play in the Little Three Championship at Bartlett Country Club. They will face rival MAAC schools Niagara, and St. Bonaventure in the 69th edition of the Little Three Championship as they search for success with only three tournaments left on the schedule for the fall season..
