Biola men’s golf returned to action at the Dennis Rose Invitational in Waikoloa, Hawaii. After almost two weeks without competition, the Eagles got to take a special trip to paradise. The tournament took place over a three-day span at Waikoloa Resort King’s course.


Biola had a strong first day of competition, including an impressive final nine holes. The Eagles finished the first round ahead of four other PacWest teams at ninth overall. Senior Austin Bishop carried the team on day one, shooting two under and an even-par round of 72.

On Tuesday, the hot and humid conditions impacted round two of the tournament. Nonetheless, the Eagles were able to put up an identical finishing score of 305. Senior Kyle McAbee led Biola, coming back from a slow start. After double bogeying the first hole, he came back to finish with a one-under mark through 15 holes. Junior Kaden Page also scored a 77 and recorded an impressive par on 13 holes.


With one round left to play, the Eagles were still ahead of three other PacWest teams. Biola came out for day three ready to finish the week with some good numbers. Through nine holes McAbee and Page were both just one stroke above par. They shot an overall third round score of 309, making their combined score on the week 919 and 55 above par. This score earned them 11th place out of 15 schools for the tournament.

The Eagles’ final season is still young with many more opportunities to improve coming up. The men will be back in play next Wednesday in a dual match at Sierra La Verne Country Club in La Verne, California against the University of La Verne.
