Men's Golf 2012-13 Season Review


Brandon Davis
Davis was selected as the Mules' Player's Player and finished his career with a stroke average of 80.5 in 46 rounds.
A balanced top of the lineup paced the Muhlenberg men’s golf team in 2012-13.

The top three players on the team – junior Christopher Lucarelli, senior Brandon Davis and junior Chris DiMaio – were separated by just one-tenth in stroke average. Better still, all three improved their averages by more than one stroke from the previous year.

The Mules finished in the top half of seven of the 11 tournaments in which they played and came in sixth at the Centennial Conference Championships for the second straight year.

Lucarelli led Muhlenberg with a 79.6 average and tied for ninth at the CC Championships, improving his score at the three-round event by an impressive 25 strokes. He finished fifth at the Glenmaura National Collegiate Invitational, shooting a season-best 74 in the second round, and tied for third at the Muhlenberg Invitational.

Davis averaged 79.7 strokes per round, tying for sixth at the Mason-Dixon Collegiate Classic. He shot 74s in the first round of the Guy W. Kuhn Invitational and the middle round of the CC Championships.

DiMaio was a model of consistency in finishing with a 79.7 average. Except for his first four rounds of the spring, he shot 77, 78 or 79 in every round, tying for fifth at the Muhlenberg Invitational and tying for ninth at the Moravian Fall Invitational.

Freshmen Jonathan Graulich and Greg Hewitt rounded out the Muhlenberg lineup. Graulich averaged 82.0 strokes and had the team’s low round of the year with a 73 at the Moravian Fall Invitational.

The Mules came in second at their own tournament, which was postponed from the fall to the spring due to rain, for the sixth time in 10 years, and also were runners-up at Moravian in the fall. They came in third at Glenmaura and the Ursinus Invitational.
