BETHLEHEM, Pa. -The St. John’s men’s golf team closed out the fall portion of its schedule on Saturday, with the best finish of the season, as the Johnnies secured at fourth-place tie at the Lehigh Invitational in Bethlehem, Pa.
“I am happy with our fourth-place finish to end our fall season,” St. John’s head coach Mal Galletta said. “We will go to our four-month break with some goals of improving our game from 100-yards and in. We are a good ball-striking team, but our goal for the off-season is to improve our short strokes, particularly our putting.”
Junior Andrew Baek led the Johnnies with a seven-over 151 to finish in the top-15, with a pair of birdies on the front nine highlighting a second-round low of 75. The Arcadia, Calif. native has led the Johnnies in three-of-six fall tournaments, tallying two top-15 finishes.
Ross Moore drained four birdies in the final round of play, with three coming on the back-nine stretch, to post a six-over 78 and an overall 153 (+9) to finish in the top-20. Gerald Mackedon and Matthew Sweeney both recorded a 78 (+6), while James Smoot rounded out scoring for the Johnnies with an 83 (+11). As a team, the Red Storm registered a 613 (+37) to finish ahead of five teams.
