Better make that Logan Osborne adds to history. But what happened to him has occurred so rarely it feels historical. The Central High School graduate, a sophomore golfer at USI, has been selected as an individual to play in the NCAA Division II Central/Midwest Super-Regional May 6-8 in Kenosha, Wis. The historical part of this story is that he’s the first USI men’s golfer to qualify for the NCAA Division II Super Regional since Andy Skodinski in 2001-02. That’s a long time. But Osborne’s 75.1 stroke average is outstanding and must have had a lot to do with his being selected.
Let’s let the USI news release take over from here:
He led the Screaming Eagles in seven of the 11 tournaments, posting two top-five and four top-10 finishes. Osborne posted his best showing of the year by tying for second place at the UMSL Midwest Regional last October, shooting a 146 (74-72). He posted a career-best 18-hole round of 68 in the first round of two separate tournaments (Wasioto Wind Falls Kick-off and The Jewell) and a 36-hole tournament season-best of 143 at the Purgatory Regional.
The sociology major tied for 57th last week at the Great Lakes Valley Conference Championships with a 54-hole 235 (78-83-74). He recorded a career-best 54-hole tournament score of 219 twice during the fall, first in the Wasioto Wind Falls Kick-off (68-76-75) and second in the Skyhawk Classic (70-73-76).
