KIAWAH ISLAND – Late rain delays cut the 2014 Kiawah Island Invitational short, reverting scores to Monday's first round. As such, senior Tommy Hurst tied for second in the event and the Newberry Wolves were 12th in the 18-team field
Hurst shot under par in the first tournament of the 2014-15 season and led the Wolves to an 8-over par 296 in Monday’s round. That score was 13 strokes behind co-champions Erskine and Flagler
Hurst shot a 4-under par 68 on the Cougar Point Course in his initial round which tied him for second place in the final individual standings, only one stroke back of medalist Cory Griffin of Armstrong State.
Sophomore Nick Lussier shot a 2-over par 74 to tie for 42nd place, while senior Ryan Wilkinson tied for 48th with a 3-over par 75. Freshmen Evan DeGrazie and Spencer Skiff both got their first taste of college action Monday and carded 7-over par 79s to finish tied for 79th.
