KIAWAH ISLAND - The Newberry Wolves' men's golf team wrapped up play in the season-opening Kiawah Island Invitational in 12th place, following the lead of a freshman in Richard Mansell's top finish for the scarlet and gray.

Newberry shot a 33-over par 609 as a team in the event, with a 313 in Tuesday's final round.

Mansell (Staffordshire, England) finished the event in a tie for 21st place with a 4-over par score for the two days, shooting a 77 in the final round.

Fraser O'Connor (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) tied for 40th spot with an 8-over par 152 for the event, with a 79 in the final 18 holes.

Tommy Hurst (Miami, Fla.) tied for 53rd with a 10-over par 154, scoring 77 on both days. Ryan Wilkinson tied for 72nd with a 14-over par 158 and John Paul Ferguson (Travelers Rest, S.C.) shot a 17-over par 161 to tie for 81st.

Scoring was noticeably tougher in Tuesday's round, as only one team in the 17-school field improved on their score from Monday to Tuesday. North Alabama claimed the team title, with the Lions' Conner Godsey earning medalist honors at 6-under par for the tournament.

The Wolves have a short turnaround, and will look to improve in next week's Jay Jennison Memorial hosted by Flagler College. The event will be held on Monday, September 23, and Tuesday, September 24, at the Palencia GC in St. Augustine, Fla.
