SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa men's golf team fell to Liberty on Tuesday, 3-0-2, in its fourth and final match of the Calloway Collegiate Match Play Championship in Bradenton, Fla. The defeat placed the Hawkeyes in 10th.

Three-match winning streaks for senior Chris Brant and sophomore Steven Ihm ended against the Flames, although Brant finished unbeaten in Bradenton. Ihm fell to Liberty's No. 2 golfer, Ian McConnell, 3 and 1, while Brant finished his run at the Concession Golf Course with a draw against Flame sophomore Chase Marinell. The senior finished 3-0-1 for Iowa, after a 1-3 start in the Hawkeyes' first two events of the season.

Freshman Brian Bullington also played 18 holes square with his opponent, but losses by senior Barrett Kelpin and freshman Ian Vandersee gave the consolation championship match to Liberty. Top-seeded Arkansas claimed the championship by defeating Duke.

The Hawkeyes' next competition will come March 31-April 1 at the LSU National Invitational in Baton Rouge, La.
