    Wildcat Men's Golf Finishes in Eighth at Duke Golf Classic

    DURHAM, N.C. -- The Northwestern men's golf team battled the elements on Sunday and Monday, finishing in eighth place at the Duke Golf Classic with a team score of 602, 14 strokes behind tournament champion North Carolina. The tournament was shortened from 54 holes to 36 holes due to the vast amount of rain in Durham on Sunday morning. Junior Erik Ciotti was NU's top finisher, tying for 17th place at four-over-par 148. Other NU scores were Luke Donald (t33rd, 152), David Shaffer (t38th, 153), Josh Habig (t45th, 154) and Jess Daley (t59th, 157). The men's golf team is back in action Nov. 6-9 at Stanford's The Nelson in Palo Alto, Calif.
