Men's Golf Battles Rain, Drake, In Tuesday Dual

OMAHA, Neb. -- The Creighton men’s golf team was defeated by two strokes in their dual with Drake on a rainy Tuesday, where the teams squared off at the par-71 6,801 Omaha Country Club.

Bluejay head coach Chris Wiemers recognizes the conditions were only a small factor when it came to the play of his team. “Conditions were what they were and everyone had to play in it” Wiemers commented. “Our short game was weak and we didn’t get it done.”

Creighton finished with a team score of 304 and Drake scored a 302.

The Jays were led by Johnny Spellerberg who shot a 72 and finished tied for first. Tommy Anderson and Andrew Holloway shot a 76 and tied for fourth.

“John (Spellerberg) played good, but he always does, that’s why he’s our number one golfer.” Wiemers said. “We’ve got to get back to get back to work and get better each day.”

The Bluejays head east for their final tournament of the fall, competing in the Wendy’s Kiawah Classic on Nov. 3-5 in Kiawah Island, S.C.
