Lee Claims Individual Title At Golfweek D2 Preview

BEND, Ore. – Junior Michael Lee claimed the individual title while the No. 7 Colorado School of Mines golf team placed sixth of 13 teams at the Golfweek Division II Preview on Tuesday at the Sunriver Resort, Crosswater Course in Sunriver, Ore.

Lee's first-career medalist honor came with an even-par 72 during Tuesday's final round after ending the first day of action with a four-stroke lead on the 66-player field. He balanced three bogeys with three birdies to claim the Oredigger's first individual title since Jim Knous captured medalist honors at the NCAA Central/West Super Regional last May.

The Greeley native and Preseason All-RMAC selection moved his individual won-loss record on the season to 158-18 after nabbing two additional top-20 finishes to start the season, including a runner-up nod at the CMU Invitational on September 17-18 in Montrose. 

Joe Schwark was the next Oredigger on the individual leaderboard with his third 75 of the tournament on Tuesday, which placed him in a tie for 32nd overall. 

Kyle Grassel was just one stroke behind Schwark in a tie for 36th after closing out his tournament with a five-over 77. 

Sophomore Jordan Arndt and freshman John Ahern finished in a tie for 50th and 55th overall, respectively after three-round totals of 232 and 234. 

Mines will close out its fall schedule when the squad takes part in the Ryan Palmer Invitational, hosted by West Texas A&M, on October 8-9 in Amarillo, Texas.
