AVON, Ind. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) –
Paced by sophomore Tom Boockmeier’s (Green Bay, Wis.) first-place finish, the Green Bay men’s golf team won the rain-shortened Butler Spring Invitational on Thursday at Prestwick Country Club. The Phoenix posted an opening-round score of 296 – 10 shots ahead of second-place IUPUI (306) – but heavy rains overnight made the course unplayable for Friday’s final round.

Boockmeier was the only player in the field to finish under par, firing a 1-under score of 71. He finished two strokes ahead of Ball State’s James Blackwell, who shot a 1-over par 73. It marked Boockmeier’s first individual tournament title this season.

A pair of Phoenix teammates ended the first 18 holes tied for third, as senior Cam Fuller (Sturgeon Bay, Wis.) and junior Dan Ozga (Edgerton, Wis.) both carded 74s. Senior Chad Ebert (Kenosha, Wis.) and freshman Gene Kiela (Plymouth, Wis.) rounded out the Phoenix five by tying for 12th, both finishing with scores of 77.

The Butler Spring Invite served as Green Bay’s final regular season tune-up prior to the 2013 Horizon League Championships, which will be held April 26-28 at Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla.
