Buckeyes Finish Fourth at Linger Longer Invitational


GREENSBORO, Ga. – Ohio State made 11 birdies and an eagle as a team over the final nine holes of the Linger Longer Invitational on Tuesday to secure its fourth place finish in the 16-team field.

The Buckeyes carded rounds of 289-289-291 to finish at 3-under par. This is the second event this year that the team has finished under-par.

Invidiously, Will Grimmer overcame a couple of double-bogeys to post a final round 74 and finish in a tie for 17th at 1-under par. Gimmer has now finished sub-par in three of his seven events this season.

Daniel Wetterich had an eventful 74 on Tuesday which included two bogeys, a double and a triple as well as a four-hole stretch of three birdies and an eagle. He finished a shot behind Grimmer at even-par and in 20th place.

Junior Will Voetsch posted three steady rounds of 71-74-72 to finish at 1-over while Jeg Coughlin III and Josh Wick each came in at 3-over for the event after final rounds of 74 and 71, respectively.

Caleb Ramirez posted three birdies in his final round of 73 as he finished tied for 45th while playing as an individual.

The Buckeyes will now have three weeks to prepare for their closing stretch of three events in regular season’s final three weekends. It starts with a trip Purdue for the Boilermaker Invitational on April 14-15. That is followed by the Robert Kepler Invitational on April 21-22 and then the Big Ten Championship on April 27-29.
