After a slow first round, the Iowa men’s golf team secured a second-place finish at the FAU Spring Break Championships on Sunday.

The Hawkeyes were in the bottom half of the pack after shooting a first-round score of 295 (plus-11).

A second-round surge boosted Iowa into fourth place. The Hawkeyes shot a 281, a score bested only by tournament champions and No.13-ranked Illinois.

Iowa fired home an even par during Sunday’s final round of competition to secure a second-place finish. Sophomores Chris Brant and Brad George were low for the Hawkeyes on the third day, both shooting 70 (minus-1).

But of Iowa’s five competitors, sophomore Barrett Kelpin had the most success. He built on his undefeated weekend at the Callaway Collegiate Match-Play Tournament March 21-23 and earned an individual second-place finish.

Kelpin shot a second-round score of 65, the low score for the tournament on March 27.

The Big Ten had an impressive overall showing at the event, with Illinois, Iowa, and Penn State claiming the top three spots in the final standings.
