Junior fires 4-under-par 68 to post Top 10 finish
TAMPA, Fla. (Oct. 4, 2009) - ETSU junior Rhys Enoch (Cornwall, England) carded a 4-under-par 68 in the third and final round of the Gary Koch Invitational Sunday at the Old Memorial Golf Club, finishing tied for 10th (71-72-68=211) on the individual leaderboard.
Enoch's efforts helped lift the Buccaneer men's golf team from a second round finish of 14th to a final round showing of 12th in a quality 15-team field. ETSU carded a 7-over 871 for the tournament, while Florida State posted a team score of 30-under 834 and cruised to the championship with a 16-stroke advantage over second place Texas Tech in the team competition.
Individually, Enoch ended the tournament a 5-under-par and was 10 strokes back of individual champion Kyle Kopsick of Auburn. Kopsick's 15-under 201 effort bested Florida State's Seath Lauer by two strokes.
Along with Enoch, other ETSU results included a tie for 22nd by sophomore Michael Stewart (Troon, Scotland), who finished at 2-under 214 (73-69-72). Meanwhile, senior Seamus Power (Waterford, Ireland) tied for 56th, while sophomore Devin Komline (Dorset, Vermont) finished tied for 62nd.
