CROSSVILLE, Tenn. Cumberland men’s golf currently sits at third in the Bryan College Invitational after carding a 14-over-par, 302.
The Phoenix are only one stroke off second place, and fellow Mid-South Conference rival, Georgetown College. The tournament leader is Tennessee Wesleyan which shot an even-par 288 day one.
Freshman phenom, Isaac Walker, led the Phoenix on the day, shooting even-par to finish tied for third place. Walker carded five birdies, four of them coming on the back nine. His long game was dialed in, birdieing all but one par-five, but on the flip side struggled with the par-threes bogeying all but one.
Adrian Steeger also slipped into the top ten, with a one-over-par 73 for a tie at seventh. Similar to Walker, the sophomore recorded five total birdies and four of those were on the back nine. Steeger only had four holes of over-par golf, but two of those came on back-to-back double bogies.
Freshman Tomi Acotto and senior Reece Gaddes tied at 29th with a six-over-par 78. Jacob Nolen and Bryson Smith followed immediately behind, tying for 32nd (79) and 34th (80), respectively.
Cumberland finishes the Bryan College Invitational tomorrow. The team’s next tournament will be in Richmond, Ky., for the Mid-South Conference Fall Invitational from October 7th-8th.
