In the final match of his career, Mike Worth birdied his final hole to win his individual match, leading the golf team to an 8-1 victory over John Glenn.

Worth was feeling at ease as he strolled up to the ninth green. With his opponent staring down a 25-foot put for par, he knew he’d probably be able to two-putt for the win. However, when his opponent sank that difficult putt, the pressure was squarely back on Worth’s shoulders. Birdie to win. Par to tie. With victory on the line, Worth coolly sank the putt for the win. Here is the recap of yesterday’s match from coach Mike Hickey:

In his final match, Mike led the Bears to victory, shooting a team-low 43 on the front nine at Crab Meadow Golf Course. What made this performance stellar was the fact that Michael has been battling an elbow injury most of the year which will require surgery after the season is over. In typical Worth fashion, Michael birdied the last hole to beat his opponent, not unlike Derek Jeter, one of his heroes, in his last at bat.
