Concordia's Schaller is Second at Golf Tournament

Jeff Schaller and the Concordia College men’s golf team entered the Dowling College September Shootout Golf Tournament off of limited practice time. The team had a few practices after welcoming a new coach so the team did not know what to expect. What Schaller showed was that practice might be overrated. The junior shot a pair of even-par 71s and went on to finish second at Long Island National Golf Course. Schaller tied for first place with Dowling’s Kurt Bray, but the host team’s golfer won a play-off on the fourth extra hole. Schaller was the medalist on the final day of the tournament. Concordia finished eighth in the 18-team field.

“I tied for first, shot even par both days and had the low round the second day,” said Schaller, a Kingston (NY) graduate and Business Administration major. “I have a lot to take away from this and I am going to build off of it.” Schaller, a two-time qualifier in the New York State Public High School Golf Championships while at Kingston, felt he was consistent from tee-to-green and on the green. “I didn’t hit many errant shots and I had the putter going well, including 29 putts on the first day. If I had dropped a couple of more putts, I would have won the tournament," he said. "I had six six-footers in the last six holes and only made two putts.” Schaller explained that he and Bray played the par-3 ninth hole three times. The duo parred it the first two times and bogeyed it the third time. They moved to the par 4 17th hole and Bray parred the hole to win.
