Furman leads F&M at Flower City Preview

PENFIELD, N.Y. — Daniel Furman carded a two-round 152 (77-75) and placed 15th to lead Franklin & Marshall to a 10th place finish at the Flower City Preview in men's golf action on Saturday and Sunday. The Diplomats finished at 619 with a 309 in round one and a 310 on the final round.

The annual fall preview of the NCAA Division III championship venue, F&M competed with 17 of the other top teams in the country. The tournament was originally scheduled for 54 holes over the two championship courses but heavy rains on Saturday forced the teams from the course on what was scheduled to be a 36-hole day. As a result, the teams finished the second round on Sunday morning and the tournament was called after 36 holes with the teams playing both rounds at Midvale Country Club.

Stephen Colodny (154) placed 27th with a 76 in round one before finishing at 78 in the final round.

Brad Lankler turned in a 158  and tied for 33rd with a 78 in the opening round and finished with a 77.

Steve Altieri figured into the scoring with a 46th-place finish at 158 (78-80)

Jon Meissner shot 84-82 for a two-round total of 166 and placed 80th for the Diplomats. 

F&M returns to action next Sunday at the two-day Penn St. - Harrisburg Invitational.
