Maryland men’s golf opened up its season earlier this week in the two-day Badger Invitational, finishing tied for 16th.

It was a disappointing outcome for the Terps, with their combined score of 606 (+46) giving them a second-to-last place finish.

“This is certainly not the way we wanted to begin the season,” head coach John Phillips said in a release.

Among the 17 competing teams were Big Ten opponents Wisconsin, Purdue and Nebraska.

Senior Will Koras was a bright spot, though, as he led the five-man team with a score of -2.

Koras and company will next face off in the Howard University/University of San Francisco Invitational next Monday at TPC Potomac.
