He was once best known as the son of CPGA Ottawa Zone golf professional John Boyle but in more recent times Brad Boyle has been making a name for himself.
That trend continued Monday as the Kingstonian won yet another NCAA Individual title after shooting 64-74-138 at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania Cecil Spadafora Invitational.
Playing at the Indiana Country Club, Boyle guided his IUP Crimson Hawk team to victory but it was closer than expected. IUP had a seventeen shot lead going into the final round on Monday but the Concord Mountain Lions charged to get within three strokes. Concord won the IUP tournament in 2009 but this makes the second straight year that the Hawks won their own event.
IUP and Concord finished well ahead of the other teams in the 19 school field. Concord was the Number 1 ranked team in the Atlantic Region heading into the tournament, just ahead of IUP, but both teams will now head to the NCAA Super Regional being held on May 2-4 in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
This was the 7th team win of the 2010-11 season for the Crimson Hawks.
Boyle, currently a Junior at IUP, had a seven stroke lead after round one when he blitzed the Indiana Country Club in just 64 strokes on Sunday. He backed up a little with his 74 in the second round but he still finished two strokes ahead of Concord’s Andreas Reideborn who had the low round of 66 on Monday.
It is Boyle’s third Individual tournament win in the 2010-11 season.
