MEN'S GOLF: Langham leads NIC to NWAC title

05/22/2018

The Cardinal Men won the 2018 NWAC Championship today in exciting fashion as the final round concluded at Apple Tree Golf Resort in Yakima, WA. The men were four shots behind Bellevue College after the first round and they needed a strong finish today as Bellevue was playing some spectacular golf.  During the final round the Cardinal men even fell to nine shots back with 9 holes to play but made an incredible run the last few holes.  The men brought it back to within one shot with the final group coming down the 18th hole.  Sophomore Sean Langham was in that final group and needed to make a 10 foot birdie putt which he drained with confidence to tie Bellevue and force a sudden death playoff. The playoff was a four person combined total score that went back to hole number 18.  Both Sean Langham and Jesse Henderson made birdie and Brady Nelson and Ben Harvey made par which gave them a total of -2 which bettered Bellevue's +1 to give the Cardinals the victory.  Langham also won individual medalist for the event with a two day total of 140 (-4). Sophomore Brady Nelson and Freshman Jesse Henderson also had top 10 finishes.  Nelson finished with scores of 71-72 to finish T3 and Henderson finished 77-71 for a T9 finish.  "The way the guys played coming down the stretch just shows how much they wanted to win," head coach Russell Grove said.  "We had a great game plan coming in and knew the course inside and out, it was just a matter of executing the shots.  We've worked hard all year for this and to win it like this was incredibly exciting. Hats off to Bellevue for playing some great golf.  I'm just so proud of the guys and for Sean to make that putt to put us in a playoff was beyond clutch."
