Loyola University Maryland sophomore Matt Oshrine has been named the Corvias Patriot League Men’s Golfer of the Month for September, as announced by the league office Thursday.
Oshrine started the fall season by breaking par through all three rounds of St. John's season-opening Doc Gimmler to set a new 54-hole school record at Loyola, finishing at 16-under 194, and win his first-ever collegiate tournament.
The sophomore from Baltimore, Maryland, shot a 6-under 64 through his first round of the fall to break the program's par 71 course record and come just one stroke shy of tying Brandon Luckett’s single-round program record of 7-under 65 from the 1995 MAAC Championships. Oshrine continued his strong start by carding a pair of back-to-back 5-under 65s to win The Gimmler.
Oshrine followed that up by posting his fourth-straight under par round to open play at Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish Classic. He concluded the tournament with a 4-over 75 and a 1-over 72, respectively, to finish tied for sixth among the 50 competitors at 2-over 215.
For September, Oshrine led the Greyhounds with a 68.16 stroke average and shot four of six rounds under par.
This marks the first weekly award for any Patriot League golfer this year, while it’s the second career honor for Oshrine. He was named the Patriot League Golfer of the Month for March last year.
Loyola will return to the course on Monday, Oct. 6 for the two-day Wolfpack Intercollegiate at NC State.
