Chris Wisler Ranked Sixth in MasterCard Collegiate Golf Rankings

Wednesday, April 04, 2001

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -- Following his third-place finish in the Schenkel E-Z-Go Invitational last weekend, East Tennessee State senior All-American Chris Wisler is ranked sixth nationally in the latest edition of the MasterCard Collegiate Golf Rankings, released today.

Wisler shot under-par in all three rounds on the Forest Heights Country Club course (71-70-71). He was the only player in the field to accomplish that feat. Wisler finished just two shots back of the individual meadlist, Nick Cassini of Georgia. It was his fifth top-10 fifth of the season and the 17th of his career.

The Buccaneers have risen to 13th in the team rankings. ETSU finished seventh (290-294-292) in the Schenkel E-Z-Go Invitational field that included ten ranked teams.

Wisler leads the team with a 71.7 stroke average. He is the defending Southern Conference Player-of-the-Year, and is a two-time NCAA All-American and preseason first-team All-American in 2000-2001.

The MasterCard Collegiate Golf Rankings, the official rankings of the Rolex Collegiate Tour, will be released a total of 18 times throughout the 2000-01 college golf season. These rankings are the only published rankings to use complete and official NCAA results.

The Bucs return to action on April 14-15 at The Intercollegiate in Chapel Hill, N.C
