While temperatures in Northern Indiana continue to drop, the men’s golf team was able to experience enjoyable warm sunny Florida weather during the week of Oct. 24. After competing hard and shooting three rounds the team took 11th place overall in the NCCAA National Tournament held in Panama City, Florida. Overall, the team shot a 310-317-310, while the winning team, California Baptist University, shot a 294-302-291 which gave them their first ever NCCAA golf championship. Despite the high scores and difficult courses, John Enfield was able to play brilliant golf all three days. Enfield compiled a score of 74-70-76, and reported the lowest Bethel score every day. Not only did this encourage the rest of the team but it earned him an impressive sixth place overall finish. In addition Enfield was named an NCCAA All-American for his tremendous play. Brady Klotz, who has also led the Pilots all year struggled a little but was able to stay consistent as he shot a 77-81-77, which gave him an overall finish of 40th. Greg Lebold also competed well and received a 43rd finish after shooting a 78-78-81. Lastly Spencer Pannabecker revealed his experience, shooting an 81-88-76. The golf team experienced a great fall as a result of a great mix of talented newcomers and valuable veterans. With the NCCAA Tournament being the last event of the season, the team will use the off-season to prepare for the spring.
