Enoch leads men’s golf on opening day of U.S. Collegiate

Sunday, October 23, 2011

ALPHARETTA, Ga. (Oct. 23, 2011) – Rhys Enoch (Cornwall, England) fired an opening round 1-under-par 71 to lead the ETSU men’s golf team on day one of the U.S. Collegiate Championship, Sunday afternoon.

Enoch had a steady round of golf that included three birdies and just two bogeys. He shot a 1-under 35 on the front nine and followed that up with a solid even-par 36 on the back nine. Enoch is currently tied for 13th place in the 75-player field.

The tournament, which is being held at The Golf Club of Georgia - Lakeside Course, is playing as a 7,017-yard, par 72 layout for the tournament. The course was designed by Arthur Hills in 1990 and is fashioned around Lake Windward.

Sophomore Spencer Lawson (Raleigh, N.C.) followed Enoch with a 2-over 74 on Sunday. Lawson was in good position at even-par thru 16-holes, but a double-bogey at the 17th dropped him to 2-over. Lawson is currently tied for 37th position.

Steve Lim of USC has the individual lead after an impressive round of 6-under  66 to take a two-shot advantage. Dominic Bozzelli of Auburn and Julian Suri of Duke are just one shot back at 5-under.

The Bucs are in 14th position on the team leaderboard after compiling a 304 (+16) in the opening round. USC and Auburn share the lead at 6-under (282). Duke sits one shot back at 5-under, while Georgia Tech (4-under) and Florida State (2-under) remain well within striking distance after day one.  

Freshman Scott Gibson (Dumfries, Scotland) shot a 79 on Sunday and is tied for 70th, while Sam Edwards (Bigbury, England) and Rhys Pugh (Pontypridd, Wales) finished just one shot behind Gibson.

The Bucs tee off round number two tomorrow beginning at 11:30 a.m. They will be paired with Georgia Tech and Texas A&M on day two.
