NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The Fighting Irish men's golf team topped Detroit Mercy by six strokes on Wednesday afternoon to take the Battle at The Warren title. Playing as individuals, senior Doug Fortner (Tustin, Calif.) and sophomore Tom Usher (Bradford, England) led the way with minus-one 69 totals to tie for medalist honors. As a team, the Irish finished at 12-over par (292), while Detroit Mercy finished at 18-over par (298).

The starting Irish five consisted of seniors Carl Santos-Ocampo (Naples, Fla.) and Josh Sandman (Greensboro, N.C.), junior Connor Alan Lee (Solana Beach, Calif.) and sophomores Chris Walker (The Woodlands, Texas) and Max Scodro (Chicago, Ill.).
