Butler Finishes 10th At Dayton Flyer Invitational

Freshman Andrew Wegeng shot the best back-to-back rounds of his young collegiate career to capture a “Top Five” individual finish and help Butler to a 10th place team finish at the Dayton Flyer Invitational, which finished in Kettering, Ohio, on Tuesday (Oct. 20).  The tournament was Butler’s final competition of the fall season.

Wegeng shot a team-best 74 and was tied for ninth after the opening round of the 17-team tournament at NCR Country Club.  He followed that with a 75 on the final day and moved into a tie for fifth place in the final individual standings.  His final score of 149 was his best 36-hole total this fall.

Two of Wegeng’s teammates, including his brother Ryan, tied for 42nd in the final standings.  Ryan, playing as a non-scoring individual, shot a 79 and a 77 for a two-round score of 156, a total matched by senior Kyle Thomas, who carded rounds of 77 and 79.

Sophomore Jordan Mack finished one stroke back in a tie for 50th place with rounds of 82 and 75, while freshman Matt Vogt tied for 65th at 160 (77-83).  Freshman Colin Reenan rounded out Butler’s five-player scoring team with a tie for 76th place at 162 (82-80).

The Bulldogs posted a team score of 310 in the first round and then finished with a 309 for a two-day total of 619.  Ball State won the team crown with a 36-hole score of 596, five strokes better than runner-up Toledo.
