COLUMBUS, Ohio - Michigan State men's golf senior Matthew Moseley ended his season on Saturday, tying for 22nd at the NCAA Columbus Regional. Moseley shot a 2-over par 73 today at Ohio State University Golf Club's Scarlet Course, to finish the three-day event at 8-over par 221 (74-74-73).
"I am so proud of Matthew and the season he had," said Spartan head coach Casey Lubahn. "He absolutely played as hard as he could this week. He played well, just didn't score well enough to advance. He will have a bright future and is a great Spartan. I look forward to watching his progress over the coming years."
In his round today, which started on the back nine, Moseley began with back-to-back bogeys. He followed with a birdie on the par-5, 12th hole, then posted par on the next two holes. Moseley finished the back-nine with bogeys on the 15th, 16th and 18th holes to make the turn at 4-over. However, after three pars to begin the front nine, he carded birdies on the 4th, 6th and 8th holes, but a bogey on the ninth, ended his season.
In his NCAA debut, Moseley had the best finish by a Spartan at an NCAA Regional since Jack Newman tied for 11th in 2010.
This weekend marked Moseley's ninth top-25 finish this season in the team's 12 stroke play events. He finished with a season stroke average of 73.92, which ranked 14th on the MSU single-season list. For his career, Moseley concluded seventh on the Spartan career scoring average list at 74.84.
