Norse's Portz Finishes 3rd at NKU Fall Classic
A 5-under par 66 from Clayton Portz led the Northern Kentucky men’s golf team to the only red team score in the final round of the 2015 NKU Fall Classic and move up to fourth. Portz climbed the individual leaderboard and earned a share of third at 2-under for the tournament.
Six birdies from Portz helped the senior to a 5-under 66 on the afternoon. Jacob Brinker (E), Logan Gamm (+2) and Jacob Poore (+2) assisted the charge on the team leaderboard, leading to Northern Kentucky’s 1-under 283. The Norse finished 17-over as a team.
“I am really proud of how our guys played today,” said head coach Daryl Landrum. “Clayton shot a terrific round and it was great to post the only team score under-par. I think our first Division I tournament was a success and I’d like to thank all of the teams for participating.”
Brinker finished tied-17th after moving up 11 spots on the leaderboard, while Gamm and Poore earned t-21st and t-28th, respectively.
Jacob Jackson led NKU’s second quintet and finished t-39th. Corey Dulle was one-shot back and shared 43rd. Landon Osborne, Matt Wetherill and Byron Speach shared 61st, 63rd and 65th.
