Box Score

GREENEVILLE, TN --- The Lincoln Memorial University men's golf team shot a two-day 569 to edge host Tusculum by a single shot to win the 2011 Tusculum Fall Classic. The two-day, 36-hole tournament was held at the par 71, 6,763-yard Link Hills Country Club.

Jamie Chapman led the second-day charge for the Railsplitters as he tied three tournament records to claim medalist honors. Chapman posted an eight-under par 134, including a final round 66 on Tuesday. The 134 matches the tournament record set originally by Tusculum All-American Chase Carroll in 2006. The 66 ties the 18-hole score set on three occasions, while also matching the score set by Limestone's Phillip Rogers in last year's event.

Tusculum finished second with 570, including a final round 287. Tennessee Wesleyan placed third with 574, followed by Coker (577), Catawba (578), Lenoir-Rhyne (579), North Greenville (587), Brevard (590), Spartanburg Methodist (590), Mars Hill (592), Limestone (593) and Walters State (596).

Tennessee Wesleyan's Wesley Farris finished as runner-up with a four-under par 70-68=138. North Greenville's Josh O'Neal placed third with 72-67=139, while LMU's Eric Kennedy finished fourth with 70-71=141. Four players tied for fifth place at 142, including: Brad Cline (Catawba), Tom Rennie (Brevard), Mike Opsitnick (Catawba) and Christopher Fuga (Coker). Cline claimed the fifth and final spot on the All-Tournament via a playoff.

LMU's Josh Cornett finished tied for ninth with 72-71=143, David Lee tied for 52nd with 78-74=152 and Braden Galyon tied for 63rd place with his 77-79=156.

Tyler Davis, competing as an individual, finished tied for 23rd with a 70-76=146.

Lincoln Memorial claimed the combined championship of the Tusculum Fall Classic for a second straight year. Coupled with the LMU women's score of 623, the Railsplitters posted a combined tally of 1192, to edge Tusculum by six strokes (1198). Catawba was third with 1225, followed by Lenoir-Rhyne (1242), Coker (1255), Limestone (1257), North Greenville (1271), Mars Hill (1306), Spartanburg Methodist (1315) and Brevard (1319).
