Men's Golf Wins Ryder Cup-Like Event At Trine Venturi Invitational

The Hope College men's golf team got in the spirit of the Ryder Cup on Saturday and competed in an alternate-style format in Angola, Indiana.

The Flying Dutchmen topped a field of nine different teams at the Ken Venturi Invitational by posting a winning score of 199. They finished three ahead of host Trine's A team.

Tournament play featured three different styles: scramble for the first six holes, better ball for the next and alternate shot for the final six.
