Tompkins Cortland Community College sophomore Kyle Shaw (Groton H.S./Groton) has quailed for the NJCAA Division III Golf National Championship for the second straight year. He fired a two-day score of 161 (80-81) at the Region III Championship, hosted by TC3 at Cornell University’s Robert Trent Jones Golf Course, good enough for fifth-place overall and an invitation to the national tournament. Teammate Mike Timmerman II (Cortland H.S./Cortland) just missed out on joining Shaw at nationals, finishing tied for the last spot and then losing out on the fourth hole of a two-person playoff. Timmerman finished the tournament with a score of 167 (91-76) to tie for 14th overall, good enough to earn all-region honors.
The top two teams plus the next five best individual scores earn a place at nationals. The team title was won by Monroe Community College with a score of 641. The individual medalist honors went to Monroe’s Kyle Bromley with a 155 (80-75).
The national tournament is June 3-7 at Chautauqua Golf Club in Chautauqua, New York.
