Men's Golf Wins Championship at Earl Yestingsmeier Match Play Event

The Drake University men's golf team defeated Eastern Michigan in the championship round Tuesday, Feb. 11 of the Earl Yestingsmeier Match Play event, 4-2, at Lake Jovita Golf & Country Club.

The victory is Drake's first since last spring's weather-shortened Twin Oaks Intercollegiate in which the Bulldogs tied for first. It is Drake's first outright team win since 2011.

Chase Wicklund got Drake on the board with a 7&5 victory for his first win of the event. Shayne Patel finished his stellar showing with a 3&2 win to leave Drake one match away from clinching the championship.
