Wittenberg wins first DIII golf championship

Wittenberg wins the 2017 DIII Men's Golf Championship

Garrett Brickley played the hero in Wittenberg University's 2017 DIII golf national championship. He simply couldn't fend off Josh Gibson of Hope College for the individual title.

In a wild final two days that saw several lead changes, Brickley birdied the final two holes to give Wittenberg the two strokes they needed to secure victory over Guilford College. Both teams shot 293 on the day, but Wittenberg prevailed with 1180 total strokes, two better than Guilford's 1182.

Gibson was one of two players to shoot 5-under on the championship's final day. He and Mats Heien of Mary Hardin-Baylor both ended the day five-under-par, the best round of the four-day tournament. It brought Gibson to 1-under, and the clubhouse leader until Brickley's final two birdies tied the two atop the individual leaderboard.

It took one playoff hole to decide the 2017 individual champion, as Gibson prevailed to become victorious.

An exciting 72 holes of play come to an end at Mission Inn Resort & Club in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fl. When all was finsihed, Wittenberg University took home its program's first-ever DIII Golf National Championship.
