As Tiger and Phil were competing at the Masters last weekend, sophomore Brian Dorfman was leading the Hoyas in the Princeton Invitational with a 4-under par score of 67, the best single round score of the tournament. The Hoyas went on to finish in seventh place out of 15 teams.
Dorfman credits his extensive practice and work ethic for his improved game on the course.
“I have matured a lot after I worked hard and played golf everyday during the summer and every nice day during the school year,” Dorfman said.
He needed that determination last weekend after entering the tournament in a slump. His underwhelming performance continued through the first 36 holes of the tournament, but fortunately for the Hoyas, Dorfman was able to turn it around as he delivered the low-round of the tournament on the final day.
Dorfman said that he believes the team has a good shot in this weekend’s Big East Tournament in Tampa, but that he won’t be the only one responsible for the team’s performance.
“College golf is not an individual sport, and for us to perform well at the Big East Championships, we all need to be playing well,” Dorfman said. “We’ll go in and play the game we all love to play and see what happens.”
