Head Coach Tim Baldwin
Thought on the Round: It was a nice finish for Guillaume and Thibault this week. We are disappointed in not playing better this week despite only missing match play by six shots. In the end, we made too many mistakes but we are also very young with four freshman in the lineup. We are going to be better next year and hopefully make a run at this thing.
