Tusculum finishes eighth at SAC Championship, Engelbert earns All-Tournament honors

CAMDEN, S.C. --- The Tusculum University men's golf team finished eighth at the 2019 South Atlantic Conference Championship on Tuesday.  The three-day, 54-hole tournament was held at the par-70 Camden Country Club.

The Pioneers posted a final round 307 to finish with a three-day score of 914 as TU improves upon its 11th place showing from a season ago.

Queens University of Charlotte rallied to win the SAC Championship as the Royals finished with 864 to win by one shot over Newberry College (865).  Queens was consistent throughout posting 288 in all three rounds, while Newberry shot 292 on Tuesday.  Host Coker College finished third with 875, followed by Lincoln Memorial University (890), Carson-Newman University (891), Wingate University (893), Lenoir-Rhyne University (897), Tusculum, Catawba College (918), Anderson University (926) and Mars Hill University (944).

Newberry's Harry Bolton led wire-to-wire to claim the SAC Tournament medal as he finished with 66-73-210 to win by two strokes over teammate Adrian Villiger with 68-72-72=212.

Tusculum freshman Kyle Engelbert finished seventh with a 54-hole total 216 and earned a spot on the SAC All-Tournament second team.  He opened with bogeys on three of his first four holes, but finished the rest of his round with four birdies including two of his last three holes to finish with 72.  His 216 is tied for the eighth lowest 54-hole score in TU history.

The TU trio of Noah Jones, Liam Sweeney and Matt DiBella all finished with 235 to tie for 40th place.  Jeffery Perez carded a three-day score of 237 to tie for 45th place.
