Bibey Takes Medalist Honors at Rendleman Invitational
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba’s Tanner Bibey earned medallist honors at the Richard Rendleman Invitational Men’s Golf Tournament. Bibey had a three-under-par 139 total for the tournament, which was held at the 6,709-yard, par-71 Country Club of Salisbury.
As a team, Catawba lost a playoff to Lenoir-Rhyne for the team title after both teams tied at 594. Lenoir-Rhyne counted a birdie and four pars in the playoff, while Catawba had two pars and two bogeys. Tusuclum finished third, four shots back.
Bibey won by three shots over Cole Sutherland, who played as an individual for Lenoir-Rhyne. Joining those two on the all-tournament team was Georg Hartmann, of Lenoir-Rhyne, Catawba’s Chase Clayton and Livingstone’s Titus Okwong.
Sophomore Hunter Donahue had the best round in the rainy conditions on Tuesday with a 69. He was one of only two players in the field to shoot under par. Bibey led the field with nine birdies with Clayton just behind with seven. Donahue, AJ Boyd and Jack Chatt each had five. Riley Smith finished with a tournament-best 27 pars.
Catawba returns to action in two weeks at the Cherokee Valley Men’s Invitational in Travelers Rest, S.C.
