VU Golf claims first team victory of season behind Weyer's medalist effort

MONTGOMERY - Despite rainy conditions on the opening day and horrific winds on the second day of play, the Vincennes University Golf Team claimed its first victory of the season over the weekend as the Trailblazers won the Oakland City Invitational at Country Oaks in Montgomery.

VU sophomore Cameron Weyer was the six-team event's medalist with a score of 151. Trailblazer sophomores Jacob Bartley and Blake Claycomb garnered the fourth and fifth place spots, respectively. Bartley finished with a 154 and Claycomb shot a score of 156. In addition to the Trailblazers and host Oakland City, the event included Brescia, Hanover, Kentucky Wesleyan and Lincoln Trail. VU carded rounds as a team of 310 and 315 for a two-round score of 625 to top Oakland City's 649 team score. The rest of the field was as follows:

  • Brescia: 650,
  • Kentucky Wesleyan: 675,
  • Hanover: 682, and,
  • Lincoln Trail: 690.

VU's individual total scores in the Oakland City Invitational were:

  • Cameron Weyer: 151,
  • Jacob Bartley: 154,
  • Blake Claycomb: 156,
  • Ian Weyer: 167, and,
  • Joe Davis: 167.

Trailblazer Coach Dennis Chattin said the win was especially gratifying because VU overcame what might be the worst back-to-back playing conditions he has witnessed in his tenure with the program.

"This may have been the worst conditions for a two-day tournament that we've ever played in," he said. "Winds gusting to 50 miles per hour is just tough. I was pleased the guys hung in to win the tournament.

"We built a bigger lead and I believe others just finally let the wind get to them," Chattin added. "I was really pleased with us placing three players in the top five in the tournament."

The Trailblazers also played well through trying circumstances on the event's opening day. VU went to the clubhouse on Day 1 with a six-stroke lead. Bartley was atop the leader board after the first day of play with a score of 75.

"That was a great score in that wind and rain," Chattin continued. "They had a lot more rain in Montgomery than we did in Vincennes. The course was really playing tough and (first day) scores may not have looked fancy to some but it was a good score from the back tees on the day. I guess that's why we were leading (after the first round)."

Up next, VU is scheduled to head to the April 10 Cincinnati State Invitational in Middletown, OH.
