Seeing red: Hunt cards 5 birdies in final round of NCAA’s

DANIELS, W. Va. – Saint Anselm College sophomore Stephen Hunt carded five birdies en route to a third round 70 (-2) at the NCAA Atlantic/East Regional Tournament held at The Resort at Glade Springs in Daniels, W. Va.

Final Results

Hunt wrapped up the three day tournament with a total score of 223 (+7), tying for seventh out of the 107 golfer field.

"Stephen played extremely well today," said head coach Frank Driscoll. "To recover from playing the back nine yesterday in pouring rain to post a -2 in the final round of the NCAA Tournament is a great accomplishment."

Hunt opened the round with a bogey on the 10th hole before birdying the 11th hole and then posting a par on the next six holes. He ended his first nine with a bogey on 18, but sandwiched pars around a birdie on hole two to get to even through 12 holes played.

After a par on four, Hunt registered back-to-back birdies on five and six before parring seven and birdying eight to move to -3 for the day. Hunt closed out his round with a bogey on the final hole of the tournament to finish -2.

Hunt finished eight strokes off the pace, as John Clare captured the Regional individual title for Le Moyne. Dominican (Champions), St. Thomas Aquinas, Charleston and Le Moyne each advanced to the Regional Final, which will be held in Kissimmee, Fla. on May 22-26, while the individual qualifiers were Chris Kupniewski of Mercyhurst and Connor Sheehan of Millersville.
