Burton Grabs Top Five Finish After Final Round 68 at Tusculum Inv.

GREENEVILLE, Tenn. -- Catawba shot a final round 288 to climb up for a sixth-place finish at the Tusculum Invitational Men’s Golf Tournament.  The 18-team tournament concluded on Sunday at the 6,763-yard, par-71 Link Hills Country Club.

Trey Burton (Hickory, N.C./Newton-Conover) fired a career-low 68 in leading the Catawba Indians on day two.  His 142 total placed him in a tie for fifth overall.  Wes Cline (Thomasville, N.C./E. Davidson) carded a 71 in round two and was 20th with a 147 total.  He was joined in 20th by Jesse Vensel (West Alexander, Pa./McGuffey/Pfeiffer), who played as an individual and shot a season best 70 in Sunday’s round.

Luis Vega, of Brevard, took medalist honors, winning a scorecard playoff with Adam Lumley, of Mars Hill.  They both shot identical rounds of 71 and 67 to tie on a 138 total. 

Host Tusculum won by four shots over Brevard for the team title.  The Pioneers had rounds of 285 and 284 for a 569 score to hold off Brevard who enjoyed the best round of the tournament with Sunday’s 282.  Catawba finished with a 588 total.

Catawba will travel to Loudon, Tenn., on April 3-4 for the Tennessee River Rumble in its final tune up before the South Atlantic Conference Championships.
