David Viviano led all players
with a 2-under 70 Thursday

BOSSIER CITY, La. -- Senior David Viviano shot a 2-under 70 to finish first overall in the dual match between the Centenary men’s golf team and Southern Utah Thursday at the Golf Club at StoneBridge. The Thunderbirds defeated the Gents, 291-298, in the team competition.

Excelling at the site of this season’s Mid-Continent Conference Championships, played April 23-24 on the par-72 StoneBridge course, Viviano birdied five holes in Thursday’s round. The Lafayette, La., native shot a 34 on the back nine Thursday to win the individual competition by a stroke over Nate Page and Matt McArthur, both of Southern Utah.

Over the final nine holes, Viviano made three birdies.

Shooting a 1-over 73 in Thursday’s round and tying his low round of the season, freshman Tyler Williams (Shreveport) shot par on the back nine to finish fourth amongst the 10 players competing.

With scores of 38-38 Thursday for a 4-over 76, freshman Mark Weeber (Harare, Zimbabwe) finished seventh, while sophomore John Hogan (Eden Prairie, Minn.) and Nick Faitz (North Little Rock, Ark.) shot 79 and 82, respectively.

Page and McArthur of the Thunderbirds both shot 1-under 71 Thursday, with Page shooting 35 on the back nine at StoneBridge.

The round of 298 Thursday tied the low round for the season for the Gents.

Centenary next competes April 2, returning to StoneBridge for the start of the Hal Sutton Classic. In the final tune-up for the Gents prior to the conference tournament, Centenary looks to adapt and adjust to the StoneBridge course and continue to prepare for the Mid-Con Championships later in April.
