Lipscomb Places Seventh At ASUN Championship

BRASELTON, Ga. - The Lipscomb men's golf team placed seventh at the ASUN Championship at the Legends Course at Chateau Elan. 

The Bisons carded a 308 on the afternoon for a 54-hole 923 total. North Florida won the team title at 858.

"This is a really tough course and I think that's why all the coaches love playing the conference championship here," Director of Golf Will Brewer said. "You have to play this course calm and I think our inexperience showed up today."

Paul Swindell led the way for the Bisons on the leaderboard and finished in fifth place at 216 after firing rounds of 73-69-74. With his top-five finish, Swindell was also named to the all-tournament team. This marks the fifth straight year where Lipscomb has had an all-tournment team member.

"Paul has had a recent resurgance of his putting over the past couple of weeks and it showed here," Brewer said. "He played really well over the last few tournaments and I'm proud of his performance here and his all-tournament selection."

This concludes the season for the Purple and Gold, but Brewer knows the future is bright.

"We will be stronger next season," Brewer said. "We have a lot of guys coming back and I know we will be more prepared. It will help if we can stay away from injuries as well, but I'm proud of our guys."
