Falcons Conclude 2006 Fall Season At Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate
Oct. 27, 2006
The Air Force golf team concludes the 2006 fall season this week, Oct. 30-31, when they head to Las Cruces, N.M., to take part in the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate. The 54-round tournament, which will begin with 7:30 shotgun starts each morning, is being held at the par-72, 7,074-yard NMSU Golf Course.
Scouting the Falcons...
Leading the Falcons to the SAGC title was freshman Tom Whitney, who earned medalist honors with a three-round score of 210. Whitney became the first Air Force medalist at the event since Adam Wasinger in 2002.
In addition, senior Tyler Goulding turned in his best finish at the event, coming in second at 215 (-1), while three other Air Force golfers--Shaun O'Bryant, Chad Follett and Andrew Gibson--also placed in the top 10.
Falcons In the Record Book...
Meanwhile, freshman Tom Whitney and senior Tyler Goulding both made their marks on the individual record book in those three tournaments. Whitney and Goulding both are tied for ninth place on the individual list with their scores of 211 at the Falcon Invitational and Wolf Pack Classic, respectively. Whitney also fired a 213 at the Wolf Pack Classic to tie for 14th, while Goulding fired a 214 at the Falcon Invitational to rank tied for 21st on the individual list. Both golfers also fired a 214 at the District 7 Shootout as well. Whitney bested his low round at the Service Academy Golf Classic, finishing a 210, tying for fifth on the individual list.
Both Whitney and Goulding made impressions on the Air Force record book in other ways--Whitney's third-round score of 66 at Eisenhower is tied for the lowest in Air Force history.
Meanwhile, Goulding has now shot 214 or better 11 times in his career, more than any other Air Force golfer.
