Hanes aids golf to best finish at MAAC Tournament since 2013


Griffin Staff Report

An eighth-place finish from David Hanes helped Canisius to their best finish at the MAAC Golf Tournament in the last five years.

The sophomore shot a 9-over-par 222 in the 54-hole event that spanned over a three-day stretch at Disney’s Magnolia Course in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. last weekend.

He opened the tournament with a 2-over-par 74, shooting an even-par 36 on the back nine holes. Despite carding a 6-over-par 78 on Saturday, Hanes bogeyed four of the first nine holes — including three-in-a-row on the sixth, seventh and eighth holes. The Elma native finished the tournament with a 1-over-par 73, starting the round off with an even-par 36.
It is the second consecutive year Hanes has finished in the top 10 at the MAAC Tournament.

Matt Genaway was the Griffs’ second-best finisher, ending in a five-way tie for 11th place. The freshman’s first-round was his best as he had a 2-over-par 74, parring 14 holes in the round, including his last nine. He closed the tournament with a 6-over-par 78 on Saturday before shooting a 3-over-par 75 on Sunday.

Sophomores Jaret Chipman and John Dantonio each shot an even-par 72 on Sunday, aiding the Griffs to the fifth-place finish with 910 total strokes. Canisius entered Sunday’s round in second-to-last place.

Iona claimed their first MAAC title since 2002 with an 895-stroke total.
