#ASunMGolf Fall Review at a Glance

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

The Atlantic Sun Conference wrapped up one of the most successful fall seasons in conference history, raising expectations for the spring.

Every team contributed to the impressive start. Six teams won tournament titles with Kennesaw State and USC Upstate each claiming two titles while five individuals earned medalist honors highlighted by an impressive tie for first by Hans Reimers and Emmanuel Kountakis at the Brickyard Collegiate.

A close look at GolfStat, a leading site for breaking down collegiate golf, gives some data on standout performances. FGCU's Edward Figueroa is tied for the national lead in eagles so far with five while teammate Jake Sherwin has four to stand ninth.

Five A-Sun players ranked in the top-100 nationally in scoring versus par: Hans Reimer (Mercer | 32 | -0.87), Trey Rule (Mercer | T62 | -0.47), Rhys Pugh (ETSU | 70 | -0.27), Adam Goins (USC Upstate | T84 | -0.08) and Trey Cornfield (USC Upstate | T94 | 0.00). Three Bears rank in the top-25 in birdies carded with James Beale and Rule each posting 59 to place 15th while Reimers' 57 birdies lands 25th. In the site's team rankings, Mercer (38th) leads five teams in the top-100 while Upstate checks in at 104.

Other highlights include FGCU's Matt Cote and ETSU's Pugh scoring aces in the fall, bringing the total number fired by A-Sun men's and women's golfers to six.

Additionally, Lipscomb's freshman class is ranked as the top in the nation in Golfstat's Freshman Class Impact Ranking. The freshmen have had an outstanding fall campaign, leading Lipscomb to three top five finishes and four top 10. The Bisons freshmen have an average score of 72.91 over 39 rounds played.

Sydney Chung leads the team with a 72.75 average over 12 rounds of play. Mikey Feher is just behind with a 72.8. The two have combined for five top 10 finishes and low rounds of 65, 67, 67 and 68. Feher won Atlantic Sun Player of the Week after a fourth place finish in the APSU Intercollegiate.

Stoney Crouch, Dowling Armstrong and Joshua Enderle round out the freshmen class. Crouch and Armstrong each have stroke averages of 75.7 while Enderle has yet to play in a match.
