Thunder Men's Golf
2013 fall season preview
Last year was a tough pill to swallow for the men’s golf team. In the final round of the Spring Qualifying Tournament, Trine would have won the round and advanced to the national tournament but a disqualification cost the Thunder its first NCAA Tournament appearance. Trine will look to regroup as all but one of their starting five returns from last season, including All-MIAA Second Team honorees in senior’s Nolan Eli and Graham Bennett.
Eli had a breakout season for the Thunder as he won two events and placed in the top 10 in seven of the 12 events in which he played. Bennett also had a solid campaign netting top-10 finishes in five events. Also returning for the Thunder is sophomore Bryce Moore who played in 10 events for the team a year ago and finished in the top five twice.
Others who return for the squad after seeing significant time include senior Nick Ihrie, junior Brandon Snell and sophomores Conner Dwyer and Cody Knapp.
