DuPONT, Wash. – The Chaminade University men’s golf team opened up their non-championship fall season Friday with a 327 after the first round of the Saint Martin’s Bishop Invitational at the par-72 Home Course.
Schuyler Peterson (Huntington Beach, Calif./Mater Dei) carded an opening round 5-over-par 77 to lead the Silverswords, who are 14th overall in the tournament. The senior had three birdies in his first round of the season.
Matt Monaghan (Port Huron, Mich./Port Huron) followed with an 80 while Ethan Alexander (New Rochelle, N.Y./Fordham Prep) and Zachary DuBourdieu (Carlsbad, Calif./Sage Creek) each shot 85s.
Kal O’Brien (Mackinaw City, Mich./Marymount California Univ./Mackinaw City HS) finished his opening round with an 87.
The Invitational is a historic first for the Silverswords, playing in a mainland tournament during the non-championship season for the first time in program history. In the past, the team has been limited to just playing tournaments on O’ahu and at the annual Dennis Rose Invitational on the Big Island.
Western Washington and Victoria College of British Columbia are the team co-leaders at 286. Simon Fraser is just a shot behind.
Dawson Strobel of Montana State Billings is the first round individual leader at 6-under 66 and leads by two shots over Academy of Art’s Giulio Zanichelli and Simon Fraser’s Aidan Goodfellow.
The second and final round of the Bishop Invitational is Saturday with the first tee times at 5 a.m. Hawai’i time.
