KOHLER, Wis. - The University of Dubuque men's golf team slipped on the final round of the 2019 Whistling Straits Intercollegiate Men's Golf Tournament on Tuesday to finish tied for 10th place overall. The Spartans entered in fifth place before pf the 20-team tournament and the course bit back during the final round. Brady Ellis led the Spartans with a tied for 13th place finish overall after consistent rounds of 81-84 in some very challenging windy and rainy conditions over the two-day tournament.The open, rugged and windswept terrain defines the walking-only, links-style Straits course sculpted along two miles of Lake Michigan shoreline.

The course will play host to the 2020 Ryder Cup on Sept. 22-27, the first public course to host the Ryder Cup in 29 years.
