Wyers wows field at DQ Wolf Pack Invite
Pack junior steals show in first action of the season.
PUEBLO, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Apr. 11, 2011) - Shooting a 65 is hard for any golfer to do.
It's even more rare when the person that does it is playing in just his second competitive tournament of the season.
But that's the story for Pack junior Scott Wyers (Jr., San Diego, Calif.).
Wyers, entered outside of the ThunderWolves' declared point-scoring fivesome at the DQ Wolf Pack Invitational, being held on CSU-Pueblo's home course at the Walking Stick Golf Course, blew away the field with his -7 65, earning the distinction of being the only golfer in the field to shoot better than 70.
Through one round, he is leading the field by an impressive five strokes and is fast on the way to his first collegiate tournament championship. Wyers' round was just tied for the lowest round in modern CSU-Pueblo men's golf history, joining former All-American Andrew Hedrick, who shot 65 in 2007.
The unfortunate thing about Wyers' day - in terms of team points for the ThunderWolves - is it wouldn't count toward the ThunderWolves' team score since Wyers wasn't declared as one of the Pack's starting five golfers. But it didn't keep the rest of the ThunderWolves from having a strong first round without the direct benefits of Wyers' heroics.
CSU-Pueblo sat in third out of 10 teams after one round, trailing first place Fort Lewis by just three strokes. Leading that crop of ThunderWolves was Sean Thomas (Jr., Westminster, Colo.), who was one of just five golfers to break par on a clear and breezy day at the course.
Only one round could be officially finished due to an early morning frost delay that pushed back play by a couple of hours. As a result, the remainder of the second round will be played at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow, with the third and final round coming immediately thereafter.
