Thomas cards one-under 71, CU places 12th
LEBANON, Tenn. – Sophomore Dustin Thomas carded a one-under 71 and sophomore Guy Nardo finished at even-par for the tournament, as both players finished in the Top 25, leading the Cumberland men’s golf team Tuesday at the Chick-Fil-A Collegiate Invitational at Coosa Country Club in Rome, Ga.
Thomas posted a one-under round Tuesday on the par-72, 6,822-yard course, tying for 25th overall among 102 players. Thomas shot 75 on Monday for a 36-hole score of 146.
Nardo continued with the consistency that showed last fall before an injury sidelined the Sydney, Australia, native this past spring. Nardo registered a one-over 73 Tuesday and tied for 16th overall in the tournament with a two-day total of 144.
Junior Austin Whitmere and freshmen Caleb Evans and Cody Hughes all posted a seven-over 79 in Tuesday’s final round. Whitmere tied for 62nd (155) in the tourney, while Evans tied for 72nd (157) and Hughes tied for 78th (158). Junior Reese Stradley, playing as an individual, shot a second-round 74 and tied for 81st (159).
The Cumberland men’s and women’s teams will host a one-day event Friday at Windtree Golf Club in Mt. Juliet.
