Another good weekend for the Iowa State Cyclones finishing tied for second at the Hawkeye Invitational in Iowa.  Nick’s teammate Ruben claimed medalist honours with a three round tally of 206.  Nick finished in a tie for thirteenth on 216 – he had rounds of 69, 75 and 72.  This is Nick’s eigth top twenty finish in the ten tournaments he has competed in this season.

The tournament was played at Finkbine Golf Course which is home to the University of Iowa’s Men’s and Women’s Collegiate teams the Hawkeyes.  The Hawkeyes are Iowa State’s nearest rivals whom they tied for second with in this tournament.

Finkbine Golf Course

The golf course is named after W.O. Finkbine who donated the land to the University of Iowa.  It is a scenic golf course and from the championship tee stretches over 7,200 yards of rolling Iowa terrain.  The course has played host to many NCAA tournaments over the years – it plays to a par 72 with a USGA rating of 74.6 and a slope rating of 134. 




This blog was originally set up to share our 9 month adventure around Europe and the USA with friends and family in 2014. On returning to NZ in January 2015 I decided to carry it on so I could continue to share any future travel adventures - it has become my electronic travel diary. I hope you enjoy and get inspired to visit some of the wonderful places we have visited.
