McEntire was a dominant performer on the golf team at Butler during his four seasons with the Bulldogs. He helped lead Butler to a four-year 30-11-2 record, including a pair of Little State titles and four runner-up finishes in the Mid-American Conference. He captured medalist honors in the MAC three times, the only player in the first 25 years of the league to accomplish that feat. McEntire shot a Butler record 66 in the second round of the 1950 MAC Championship and finished the tournament with a league- and school-record 133. Both marks still stand today.
