Wyers wins tournament as ThunderWolves finish 2nd

Pack junior claims DQ Wolf Pack Invitational title as an unattached golfer.


PUEBLO, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Apr. 12, 2011) - Scott Wyers (Jr., San Diego, Calif.) completed his finest collegiate tournament Tuesday, only giving back two strokes over the final two rounds and finishing 5-under-par, claiming a two-stroke win at the DQ Wolf Pack Invitational at the ThunderWolves' home course, Walking Stick Golf Course in Pueblo.

Wyers, who shot a 65 to open the tournament Monday, shot a par 72 in the second round and was just +2 in the third round to lead the field the whole way. 

His three-round 211 is tied for the lowest 54-hole score by any ThunderWolf golfer this season.

Wyers was, however, originally entered as an unattached golfer, so his score didn't apply to the ThunderWolves' team scores, but that didn't stop the CSU-Pueblo squad from turning in its best team round of the season, shooting an 875 and obliterating its previous best by eight strokes.  It allowed the ThunderWolves to beat out rival UC-Colorado Springs for the first time this season, who placed third behind the Pack by one stroke.

Leading the ThunderWolves' scoring golfers was Sean Thomas (Jr., Westminster, Colo.), who was in second place after one round and finished fifth overall one-under-par 215.

The Pack will look to build off its finest tournament of the season at next week's RMAC Spring Championship, taking place in Phoenix.
