Tech in 14th place after one round of Grub Mart/Young Oil Intercollegiate

JACKSONVILLE, Ala. – Sophomore Tyler Cassetty had the best round of the day for Tennessee Tech Monday, but his score won’t help the Golden Eagle golf team – he’s competing as an individual.

The Golden Eagles struggled Monday in the first round of the Grub Mart/Young Oil Intercollegiate, being hosted by Jacksonville State. The Golden Eagles shot a 319 team total and are in 14th place among the 15 teams in the tournament.

 


Cassetty is tied for 18th place individually after shooting two-over 74.

The leader in Tech’s lineup is Jared Dunn, with a five-over 77, putting him in a tie for 39th place. Following him for the Golden Eagles are Wes Korth (79), Greyson Painter (81), Jake Heatherly (82) and Calvin Clark (86).

Jacksonville State and Presbyterian College are tied for first place after a one-over 289 at the Par 72, 6989-yard Silver Lakes Golf Course on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.

Austin Peay is one stroke back in fourth place with two over 290 followed by Columbus State with a nine-over 297. Stetson and Samford are in sixth and seventh with 300 and 301, while High Point (304), IUPUI (306), UT Martin (307) and Armstrong Atlantic State (307) round out the top 10. Birmingham-Southern (310), Morehead State (314), Tennessee Tech (319), and IUPUI-B make up the bottom of the leader board.

The Tournament was scheduled for 54-holes with 36 holes planned for Monday but the tournament is now shortened to 36-hole when wet course conditions forced round two to be cancelled. Final round action is set to begin at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
