History tied while Emory, Carnegie Mellon lead at Golfweek Div. III Fall Invitational

By

Emory men’s golf and the Carnegie Mellon women lead the way after the first round of play at the Golfweek Div. III Fall Invitational at Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort in Miramar Beach, Florida, but nobody got off to a hotter start on the Florida coast than Illinois Wesleyan’s Rob Wuethrich.

The junior from Bloomington, Ill. set the school record and tied the tournament record on Sandestin’s Raven Golf Course with a bogey-free 7-under 64 in the opening round of play to take the individual lead. Wuethrich tied the previous mark set by Oglethorpe’s Kyle Shealy, who made eight birdies and one bogey in the Fall of 2015 at the Raven.

Wuethrich’s Titan teammate Skylar LeVine is in second, two shots back at 5 under. LaGrange College’s Cameron Starr is in third at 4 under, followed by five players T-4 at 3 under: Britt Pero (Oglethorpe), Eric Yiu (Emory), Connor Bruce (Huntingdon College), Max Schwarz (Emory) and Andre Chi (Methodist).
