HOYLAKE, England (July 16, 2014) – Former ETSU men’s golfer Rhys Enoch (Cornwall, England) makes his Open Championship debut Thursday when he tees off at Royal Liverpool.

Enoch, the 2008 Atlantic Sun Freshman of the Year and four-time all-conference performer, qualified for the Open Championship on July 1 after winning a playoff at the Woburn Golf Club in central England. The former PING All-American fired rounds of 70 and 68, and secured his spot in the Open Championship by chipping in for birdie on the first playoff hole.

Enoch tees off Thursday at 10:55 a.m. (ET), and is paired with Justin Walters and Billy Hurley III. On Friday, Enoch tees off at 5:54 a.m. (ET).

This marks the second straight year a Buccaneer golfer has played in the Open Championship and the third ETSU golfer named Rhys to play in golf’s oldest major. Last year, Rhys Pugh (Pontypridd, Wales) made his Open Championship debut, while Rhys Davies (Bridgend, Wales) played in the 2009 and 2010 Open Championships.  

Enoch played for ETSU from 2007-2012 and earned an individual berth to the NCAA Championship in 2010 after sharing medalist honors in the NCAA Regional.

Live coverage of the Open Championship begins Thursday at 4 a.m. (ET) on ESPN, while coverage will also be available on ESPN3 as well as by using the Watch ESPN app on mobile devices. Twitter updates can also be accessed by following @ETSUAthletics and @The_Open.
