The men’s golf team hit the links this past weekend in their first tournament of the spring season, the UMass-Dartmouth Hampton Inn Invitational at Allendale Country Club. In their first competition in over five months, the Brandeis team came out strong, tying for sixth place out of 18 teams with Nichols College. Both schools had scores of 338-321-659, falling only five strokes behind the hosting UMass-Dartmouth.

The top performance for the Judges came from Charles Sacks ’11, who finished tied with four other players for 17th place overall with a score of 86-76-162 (+18). By dropping 10 strokes fro his score from the first to second day, Sacks moved up 21 spots in the rankings. His 76 was the fifth-lowest of the day.

The University Athletic Association has named Sacks the Athlete of the Week for golf.

Aaron Cusato ’12 and captain Lee Bloom ’10 came in two strokes behind Sacks at +20 in a tie for the 25th spot. Bloom shot 83-81-164, shaving two strokes off his score from day one to two while Cusato added four shots on, going 80-84-164. His 80 on the first round had put him in a tie for 11th place.
