Killian McGinley ’23 topped a field of 45 golfers this past weekend to win the 2023 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Golf Championship. McGinley is the first Stag to win the McLeod Trophy since 2014.

McGinley’s 54-hole performance at Disney’s Palm Golf Course in Lake Buena Vista was fueled by a historic 65 (-7) in Saturday’s second round. His 65 is the lowest single-round score in MAAC Championship history and the best round by a Stag at any event since 2015. The senior held off a late charge on Sunday by Hank Schaeffer of Mount St. Mary’s, sinking a birdie putt on 17 and then saving par on the 18th hole to clinch the victory.

As the individual MAAC Champion, McGinley will represent Fairfield Men’s Golf at the NCAA Regionals. He will learn his destination when the full field is announced on Wednesday, May 3.
