Holbrook Wins Shortened OAC Fall Championship

HARROD, Ohio – Capital University's Logan Holbrook earned his first collegiate individual victory after edging out Otterbein University's top golfer in a playoff at the OAC Fall Championship in Harrod, Ohio. This weekend's shortened tournament placed the Capital men's golf team in a share for second place out of eight teams.

The tournament was originally scheduled to be 36 holes over two days. However, inclement weather and flooding on Saturday forced the field to halt play just a handful of holes into the day. A total of 53 golfers took to the course on Sunday for an 18-hole event.

Holbrook finished his first 18 holes with a final score of two-over par 74, tying Otterbein standout David Monaco for the top spot. Both individuals engaged in a playoff and it took three holes to find a winner. After Monaco and Holbrook matched one another in the first two holes, Holbrook came out and shot par on the third hole, while Monaco was unable to counter. The Capital freshman and Logan, Ohio native then was awarded the tournament victory and top medalist honors for the first time in his collegiate career.

Capital's Daniel Shafer (Hilliard, Ohio/Hilliard Davidson) finished one shot behind Holbrook and found himself in a three-way tie for third place.

Jeff Czerniakowski and Phillip Martin turned in a pair of 81's on their scorecards to round out the top-25 of the field.

Capital, as a team, finished with a team total of 311 which placed them in a tie with the University of Mount Union for second place. Otterbein took the team title, edging out the Crusaders and Purple Raiders by three strokes. John Carroll University finished close behind in fourth with a 312.

Host Ohio Northern University (316) finished fifth followed by Muskingum University (318), Baldwin Wallace University (319) and Heidelberg University (337).

The event was held at the Colonial Golfers Club in Harrod. The 6,886-yard course was a par-72 and rated a 130.
