WEST ORANGE, N.J. – Senior Peter Tyler Po (Nasipit Cebu City, Philippines) and freshman Angus O’Brien (Barwon Heads, Australia) each finished at 6-over-par to lift the Seton Hall men’s golf team to a fourth-place tie at the 2021 Metropolitan Intercollegiate Championship at Montclair Golf Club on Monday.
 
Seton Hall was playing in two tournaments simultaneously, the Daniel Island Invitational in South Carolina and the Metropolitan Intercollegiate just down the road from South Orange.  The latter Pirate group played a unique tournament, which featured three nine-hole rounds played consecutively in one day of action.  Total par was 104 for the 27-hole event.
 
Po and O’Brien tied for seventh place in the field of 63 individual golfers.  Po carded a 6-over-par, 37-38-35-110, while O’Brien had a 6-over-par, 39-34-37-110.  The duo finished just three strokes behind the individual champion, Columbia’s Pat Healy.
 
Collectively, Seton Hall tied Monmouth for fourth place in a field of 10 local teams.  The Pirates shot a 451 for the event, finishing 12 strokes behind the team champion, Columbia.
 
Freshman Joshua Lee (Lantana, Texas) was the third-best Pirate on Monday, tying for 23rd place with a 10-over-par, 37-37-40-114.
 
Senior Hunter Ramee (Warren, Conn.) tied for 31st place with a 12-over-par, 40-40-36-116, while sophomore Brody Hanley (Lantana, Texas) was only one shot behind him with a 13-over-par, 41-40-36-117.
 
Junior James Bosworth (Simsbury, Conn.) rounded out the Pirates’ scoring on Monday with an 18-over-par, 46-40-36-122.

The Course:
Adding to a storied legacy, Montclair Golf Club has been designated a Distinguished Emerald Club of the World by the prestigious Board Room Magazine. Most importantly, it strives every day to ensure each of our members feel a deep sense of belonging.
 
Originally conceived by two legendary golf course architects, Donald Ross and Charles Banks, Montclair Golf Club’s courses are amongst the most distinctive in the nation. Our four 9-hole layouts—each beginning and ending at the clubhouse for play-and-stay enjoyment—challenge players of all abilities to bring their best game with every stroke.
 
Montclair’s challenging greens have helped hone the game of many of the region’s top players. In the words of Bobby Jones, Montclair is “the longest short course I ever played.” It is also one of the few Clubs to have hosted both the Men’s and Women’s U.S. Amateur Championships.
 
The Field:
In addition to Seton Hall and host Wagner, the field included eight other schools:  Columbia, Fairfield, Fordham, Hofstra, Manhattan, Monmouth, Robert Morris and Saint Peter’s.
