Camp Lejeune, NC - 4/9/2002 - The Union golf program put together their best outing of the spring with their fourth place finish in the 31st Annual Intercollegiate Golf Tournament hosted by the Marine Corps. The Bulldogs shot the final rounds' lowest score at 295 to boost them up to fourth. At fourth place, Union was the highest NAIA school to finish. Only three NCAA opponents shot a lower score. The Bulldogs shot a 879 for the weekend, seven shots back of the winning 872 score. This outing should give the No. 14 ranked Bulldogs a boost in the NAIA polls and hopefully propel them to a birth in the NAIA National Tournament. NAIA No. 6 Johnson and Wales University in Florida did not make top 15 after two days.
There were 30 teams in this tournament. All Teams Play both courses. At the end of 36 holes, the low 15 teams play the Gold course the last day and the high 15 play the Scarlet course.
