The Vanderbilt Women’s Golf Team finished their Fall season this past weekend. They finished 5th in the field. The goal is to win the tournament, like they did at the Mason Rudolph earlier this year, but when you get to play in Cabo, it helps with the disappointment.

They finished the Fall Season ranked 5th in the country according to Golf Stat. They have an adjusted scoring ranking of 71.1, just a half stroke off #1 ranked USCw.

The Men’s Team finished their season in October at the Tavistock hosted at Isleworth. They won the event in record fashion with a score of -31 under par. The closest was Arizona State at -11. Will Gordon led the team with a three day total of 200 (64-70-66), winning by four strokes. Vanderbilt is ranked 4th with a scoring average of 70.87. OKST is 1st with 69.54.

Both programs finished well and will rest before gearing back up in the Spring/Championship Season.

On the professional side, former golfer Matthias Schwab finished t-18 at Turkish Airline Open. He shot -10 with all rounds under par, including a 67 on Saturday.

Turns out Sneds was poking some fun at Kip Henley, a caddie on tour. Henley caddies for Austin Cook. On the third hole of the day, Austin had to wait for Volunteers to clear the walk way crossing the fairway. He pushed a drive right by 50 yards, according to Henley. “Cookie” was disheveled and wanted to give the volunteer a piece of his mind. Henley knew it would look bad, so he decided to do it for him, yelling, “Guys! Pay attention. We stood on the tee forever waiting for you!”

Apparently Sneds got after Henley on the course, although it was in good fun.

Brandt seems to be an outspoken guy and relatively quick with the wit. Good to see the PGA guys have some personality. Also good to see they know when they were in the wrong. After all, the officials on the course are predominantly volunteers.
