Golf senior prepares to wrap up outstanding career with MVNU
MVNU mathematics and business management major Charlie Phillips is close to hanging up his collegiate cleats for the last time.
After transferring from Kent State University in 2014, Phillips became a prominent name on the Cougar golf team. He enjoys playing cards, Xbox and basketball in his free time.
Phillips broke school records in the lowest individual one- round and lowest individual two- round categories during his time at MVNU.
Phillips’ first record-breaking round came at the Royal American Links in Columbus in 2014, with a final score of 66, six under par.
Phillips also tied his own school record on day one of the Blue Raider Classic hosted by Lindsey Wilson College in Kentucky.
Phillips’ lowest individual two- round game was a tally of 137 last fall at MVNU’s home course, Chapel Hill Golf Course, in Mount Vernon.
Phillips has earned 14 championship wins during his college years, including the Battle at Blackthorn in South Bend, Indiana, last fall where he finished with a final score of 140.
Another one of his best rounds came at the Indiana Wesleyan University Wildcat Cup earlier this month, where Phillips finished five under at 139. Phillips also swung his way to a seven-under finish at the MVNU Spring Invitational at Chapel Hill Golf Club last weekend.
Phillips and the Cougars have not yet finished their 2016 season. They will compete in the Huntington Invitational this weekend and the Crossroads League
