RICHMOND, Va. -- The Old Dominion men's golf team opened up its fall slate with an 11th-place finish at the Janney VCU Shootout at the Tuckahoe Creek Country Club in Richmond on Tuesday.

After a slow start in yesterday's opening round, the Monarchs were a combined 6-under par for the final two rounds. As a team, Old Dominion shot a 6-under in yesterday's second round, before finishing today with an even-par round for a final score of 10-over par.

Chad Hess (+2) posted the best finish for ODU, finishing in a tie for 28th after firing a 2-under round on Tuesday. Gustav Fransson (+5), in his collegiate debut, finished in a tie for 43rd, thanks in large part to a 4-under 68 final round. Fransson was also one of just 16 players in the tournament with an eagle, sinking a hole-in-one on the par 3 eighth hole.

Michael Bakker (+6) and Calvin Greschner (+6) also registered top-50 finishes for the Monarchs, as the pair tied for 48th. Rounding out the ODU lineup, Nick Rencis (+8) tied for 52nd and Chandler Wilkins (+10) tied for 58th.
