Men's Golf Finishes 15th out of 17 in Season's First Tournament
The Flames conclude a season opening tournament as they finish 15 out of 17 teams in the 54-hole Mid Pines Intercollegiate. The tournament was hosted by UNC Greensboro in Pinehurst, N.C.

The Flames shot their second-best round of the tournament today to move up one spot from where they sat entering the day. Liberty shot nine-over par as a team to finish the day at 297 and 894 for the tournament, finishing 47 shots behind Wisconsin who past up day one leader Wichita State for the tournament win. Wisconsin entered the day two shots off leader Wichita State who had its worst round of the tournament on Tuesday as they finished the day one-over. Wisconsin shot their worst team round of the tournament, a three-under day (285) but capitalized on Wichita State's off day. Old Dominion earned second place honors as they finish in a tie with Wichita State two shots behind Wisconsin.

Ryan Spears of Wichita State captured medalist honors as he caught Neil O'Briain of Wofford who was the leader entering the final round. O'Briain entered the day at 12-under and six shots ahead of second place Spears and fellow Shockers teammate Ty Sanders. O'Briain faltered in the third round shooting a two-over par. Spears shot a five-under par to finish first in the tournament. Christian Brand of Marshall rounded out the top three finishing nine-under par for the tournament and one shot behind O'Briain.

Jay Calvo led the Flames as he finished the tournament six-over par (222) after shooting one-over (73) during the third round. Josh Bain finished the tournament eight-over par (224) while Michael Turner (226), Parker McKoy (227) and Peter Horstman (228) round out the Flames lineup.

The Flames are back in action September 23-24th when they travel to Sunset Beach for Elon University's Sea Trail Golf Invitational.
