CHICAGO, Ill. ( – The Green Bay men’s golf team’s great start to the 2013-14 continued on Tuesday at Harborside International Golf Course in Chicago. Playing the back nine in 2-under par, senior Dan Ozga (Edgerton, Wis.) carded a final round 71 to lead the Phoenix to the team title at the CSU Invitational hosted by Chicago State.

After also winning the Green Bay Shootout and the Green Bay Invitational to start the season, the win was the third in four events for Green Bay this fall. The Phoenix also have had the individual medalist in three of four events and finished third in the John Piper Intercollegiate.

Green Bay held a 3-shot lead after Monday’s opening 18 holes, and the Phoenix was again three strokes better than anyone in the field in the final round. With a team score of 592 (298-294), Green Bay finished six strokes in front of second-place Texas Pan American and 14 shots clear of third-place Loyola (606). Eastern Illinois (619) and Chicago State (620) rounded out the field.

Leading the Phoenix was junior Joseph Collard (Marinette, Wis.), who carded his second consecutive round of 1-over par 73 and finished in a tie for second place individually (146=73-73), just one shot back of medalist Ricardo Solis (145=75-70). Collard had 23 pars in the 36-hole event and led the field in scoring on the par fours at 2-under par.

Ozga bounced back from an opening round 77 to lead the Phoenix on day two and finish in a tie for fifth place at 4-over 148 (77-71). The senior was 2-over through 14 holes before making birdie on three of the final four holes. Sophomore Gene Kiela (Plymouth, Wis.) also finished tied for fifth place after a second-straight 2-over par 74 to finish in the top-10 for the fourth time in as many events this season.

Redshirt freshman Joe Du Chateau (Fond du Lac, Wis.) finished tied for ninth (150=74-76) while junior Tom Boockmeier (Green Bay, Wis.), who entered after two-straight victories, finished in a tie for 18th.  

Green Bay returns to the Chicagoland area this weekend to compete in the Dallio Memorial hosted by DePaul at Ruffled Feathers Country Club. The 54-hole event will begin with two rounds on Saturday and conclude with Sunday’s final round. Fans can follow live scoring for the 11-team tournament by clicking here.
