Drake University men’s golf team finished eighth in the COG Mizzou Intercollegiate event Tuesday.

Sophomore Dane Worley put up the best score for the Bulldogs, shooting a 224 over the three rounds.

After the first day, Drake finished in the ninth spot, shooting a 301 as a team. Freshman Will McDonald shot a team-best 73. As a team, Drake stayed consistent. Senior Ben Lyons finished last among the Bulldogs, shooting a 79 on the day.

The second day brought more of the same for Drake. The Bulldogs improved their score by just six shots, shooting a combined 295. Redshirt sophomore Devin Leland shot the best score for the Bulldogs with a 72, with McDonald and Lyons both shooting a 76.

Although Drake shot a combined 308 on the last day, the Bulldogs were able to jump one spot in the standings to finish eighth overall. Drake struggled as a whole, with Worley shooting a day-best for the Bulldogs at 76.

Leland did fifth best in the event on par-5 holes, shooting a total -4, while Worley sunk eight birdies over the tournament.

The Bulldogs will take on Creighton University next on Tuesday, April 16 in Des Moines.
