Schniederjans follows in brother’s footsteps

  • Luke Schniederjans didn’t take long in college golf to send a message to older brother Ollie: “Anything you can do, I can do too.”

Vincent romps to Rod Myers win

  • Kieran Vincent obviously likes the number 67. He returned three of those scores to romp to victory in the Gopher Invitational.
