HOUSTON - The Penn State men’s golf team claimed the Mini Land Grant Trophy at the Challenge at Champions defeating Michigan State by a team score of 362-377 on Saturday at the Champions Golf Club in Houston, Texas.

“We had a tough trip down to Houston and the guys did a remarkable job of handling it,” said Penn State head coach Greg Nye. “They prepared well and quickly adjusted to the very soft turf conditions and gusty winds at Champions Golf Club.”

Senior Cole Miller (New Tripoli, Pa.) was the low man in the event, shooting a 1-under 70 to take the top spot on the leaderboard.

Sophomore Ryan Davis (Berkeley Heights, N.J.) followed close behind with an even-par 71 and junior Ryan Dornes (Lancaster, Pa.) carded a 1-over 72.

“We were so focused today and played well from start to finish,” Nye said.

The Nittany Lions have now claimed three-consecutive Challenge at Champions titles over the Spartans and are 2-0 this season in head-to-head stroke play competition.

The Nittany Lions return to traditional tournament-style play in the Colleton River Collegiate in Bluffton, S.C. The two-day tournament is Sunday-Monday, March 12-13 and is hosted by Michigan State.
