A long winter break didn't affect Embry-Riddle golfer Kale Davidson in the least.

The Eagles, idle for almost four months between competitive matches, returned to the links at the UC San Marcos Cougar Invitational in Vista, Calif., this week. Davidson, a freshman out of Cactus High School in Glendale, placed third overall, behind only two UCLA players.

Davidson bested all Div. 2, 3 and NAIA golfers in the 86-man field, which included defending NAIA national champion Oklahoma City, as well as the host team, UC San Marcos, which is currently ranked No. 2 in the nation.

Davidson's three day total through Wednesday was 218, including a final-round low score of 69.

"I hit it well during the first two rounds and felt my game was solid. I just couldn't get anything to drop," Davidson said. "I told myself to be patient on the putting green before the final round and the puts finally started to fall."

The Eagles finished 11th of 17 teams with a three-round total of 945 (315-321-309). The field featured Div. 1, 2, 3 and NAIA teams and was hosted by Shadow Ridge Country Club, which played at 7,000 yards and proved to be a challenging venue rated at 74.2 with a slope of 131.

Under cool, damp and foggy conditions the Eagles played very well for their first competition since mid-October.

"We were ready and really played very solid as a team. There were only three holes that we struggled on and it's turning those big numbers into nothing more than bogeys that we have been talking about," ERAU head coach Kim Haddow said. "If we get out of position, our goal is to get back into position and make a bogey at most. We had a couple of really big numbers on holes that jumped out at us."

Tyler Harrison finished second for the Eagles with scores of 77-80-77 (234) followed by Austin Sverdrup (81-83-79), Ethan Harman (83-83-84) and John Carosello (88-86-84).

Next up, Embry-Riddle has a dual match with Arizona Christian at Talking Rock Ranch in Prescott on Feb. 16. The public is welcome.
