Troy Spencer, Men's Golf
Senior Troy Spencer fired a five-under par at the Turning Stone Tiger Intercollegiate to tie for third place among 74 golfers and help lift the men's golf team to a sixth place finish in the Pirates' season-opening tournament. The team's lone four-year senior fired a dazzling 69-69-73-211. It represents the best tournament finish of his collegiate career. Furthermore, Spencer's 211 tied a performance by former teammate John Zur as the second-lowest par-72, three-round score in Seton Hall history. Additionally, his 5-under-par ties for the third-lowest score against par ever for a tournament. Spencer's third place tie is his ninth career top-10 finish and sixth top-5 finish, which ranks him seventh and sixth respectively all-time at Seton Hall.
