Member Spotlight: Andrew Barbin Jr
Chesapeake Bay Golf Club member Andrew Barbin, Jr. is also a senior at Eastern University and plays on the Eastern University Eagles Men’s Golf Team. He just concluded a career best fall campaign and through 8 tournaments, he has posted six scores in the 70s. His scoring average for the fall is at 76.5, and he has three top 4 finishes.
Highlights from October 3, 2016 Muhlenberg Invitational
Eastern Men’s Golf set another season mark with an impressive 304 at the Lehigh Country Club. That score matches the second-best round in school history, and put the Eagles behind only the host Muhlenberg team in the 17-team field.
Andrew Barbin Jr. led the way with a career best round of 71. The Eagles only non-freshman got off to a rough start, but he recovered to shoot a 3-under 32 on his second nine. He finished 4th overall in a packed field. Barbin’s comeback was highlighted by three consecutive birdies on the 5th, 6th, and 7th holes. Barbin finished the round with only 28 putts.
“I was really pleased with my putting and short game today,” Barbin said. “It helped me to recover after shooting 39 on the front nine. It was really great to see what Brady and the other guys were able to do today as well.”
“It’s great to see Barbs go low,” Head Coach Jason Badecki said after the round, “but it is also critical to see our young guys grinding out a score even when they are not having their best days. We need that for us to have success as a team. I am really excited for where we are with such a young squad.”
