Golf Hits the Links
NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. – Asbury hit the links for the first time in over 30 years on Saturday as they hosted Berea College, Brescia University and Indiana University East in the 1st Asbury Fall Invitational. The Eagles placed second behind Brescia on the men’s side and third out of three on the women’s side, the women’s tournament was shortened to nine-holes due to darkness.
Zach Lemons led the Eagles with a +5, 77 on the day, good for a fourth-place tie with Tyler Lyon from Brescia. A freshman from Carlisle, Ky. Lemons had 11 pars on the day and one birdie. Daniel Gibbons finished in a tie for eight with Hubie Branstetter from Indiana East, shooting 82 on the day.
Asbury finished with a score of 331 for the day with Ben Wheatley (84, 12th place) and Adam Ward (88, 16th place) rounding out the scoring for the Eagles. Zach Burr shot an 89, good for 17th place but didn’t count in the team scoring.
The girls were unable to finish so the scores were only counted through nine-holes. The Eagles placed third with a 198, one stroke behind Indiana East. Brescia won with a 178. Madison Combs led Asbury with a 42 and placed second behind Indiana East’s Ashley Mullin’s 40. Bethany Sonnier (47), Meredith Robison (54), and Amanda Paschal (55) rounded out the scoring for the Eagles.
The women will travel to Corydon, Indiana on Tuesday September 28th to take part in the Corydon Invitational hosted by Oakland City University. Both the men and women will be in action this Saturday as they travel to Centre College.
