SUGAR GROVE, Ill.—With two top-10 finishers in Will Grimmer and Daniel Wetterich, the Buckeyes took home the fourth spot in the Northern Intercollegiate Invitational after a two over final round for the team. Ohio State moved up three spots into a share of third after the completion of the final few holes of the second round that was cut short due to darkness and finished the tournament in solo fourth place to open the 2018-19 season.

Final Round

  • Grimmer moved up five spots after firing a final round 71 and finishing up the last three holes of his second round 71. Carding five birdies on the day, Grimmer’s final tally brought him to even par for the tournament, good enough for a share of fourth place.
  • Wetterich had a steady third round, putting up 16 pars along with a birdie, and bogey to card a final round 72. He put together three solid rounds of play, 70-75-72, good enough to tie for eighth place.
  • Finishing with a birdie on his 18th hole, Kevin Stone traded birdies and bogeys all day to finish at nine over for the tournament and even par for his third round.
  • Caleb Ramirez and Will Voetsch turned in 75 and 78 respectively to complete the starting five for the Buckeyes. Stone finished nine over and Ramirez 15 over in total.
  • The two freshman individuals, Grant Engle and Colin Bowles, made it through their collegiate debut totaling 15 and 22 over. Bowles shot his tournament best 75 in the third round, and Engle a five over 77 to close the weekend.
