VU Golf in middle of pack in season-opening tournament

SCOTTSBORO, Ala. – The Vincennes University Golf Team remained in 15th place as a team after Friday’s second round of the Trailblazers’ season-opening tournament but VU was within striking distance of two teams that were in a 13th place tie on the board.

VU’s Cameron Weyer was in a tie for 49th place and Trailblazers Austin Leonard was locked in a 56th place tie after play concluded on the second day of the 14th Annual Ron Marshall Spring Fling at Goose Pond Colony in Scottsboro, AL. As a team, the Trailblazers’ total score of 623 was only six strokes behind John A. Logan and East Mississippi. Mesa led the way with a two-round 588 (-1) after moving up from fifth following the first round of action.

Mesa’s Bryce Melville also was the leader after the second round. He was one-under at 143 at the end of play on Friday.

“This is one of the strongest junior college golf tournaments in the country, with mostly Division One and Division Two schools… as a matter of fact, I think we are the only (Division III program in the field),” said VU Coach Dennis Chattin, who added that he saw positives in the Trailblazers’ performances, especially in wet playing conditions. “It’s a long golf course at 7,101 yards and we had very wet conditions to make it play even longer.”

The tournament is scheduled to conclude today.
