BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - Freshman Xavier University men's golf standout Sebastian MacLean carded a 77 on Saturday afternoon and finished in a tie for 30th while competing as an individual in the 2009 NCAA Division I Men's Golf Regional at The Club at Olde Stone in Bowling Green, Ky. Among those competing as individuals, MacLean finished third. MacLean finishes the year with a scoring average of 72.97, establishing a new freshman scoring record. John Streibich mark of 73.24 during the 2003-04 season was the previous record.
Additionally, MacLean's 72.97 scoring average is the 10th lowest all-time.
MacLean's second-round 73 included three birdies but he doubled the 10th and bogeyed No. 1 and No. 3 to temper what could have been one of the best rounds of the event. He shot a one-over par 37 on the front side of his third round but carded a 40 on the backside to finish with a 77.
A total of 75 players competed at the Central Regional in Bowling Green, Ky.
