SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – A two-under-par 69 by senior Blake Barens led the way for the Notre Dame men’s golf team as the Irish stand in 12th place out of 16 teams competing in the Georgia State Maui Jim Invitational at the Mirabel Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.


As a team, Notre Dame shot a 288 (+4) in a field led by Kent State (264), Baylor (269) and Kansas (270).  

Player of the Day

Barens not only topped the Irish for 18 holes but he also turned in the single-hole performance of the day with his eagle on the 571-yard par-five second hole. His score of 69 matched the lowest of his Irish career.
