MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Paced by a superb performance from junior Braden Galyon (Powell, Tenn.), the Lincoln Memorial University men’s golf team cut five strokes off of Monday’s outing, tallying a round of 287 on Tuesday to capture a third-place finish at the Myrtle Beach Intercollegiate.

Lincoln Memorial followed up Monday’s 292 with a round of 287 on Tuesday, capping the Myrtle Beach Intercollegiate in third place with a two-day score of 579 (+3). By virtue of their five-shot improvement, LMU jumped from sixth to third place in the final standings. SAC foe Wingate brought home the championship with 574 (-2), besting Mount Olive (577; +1) by three strokes.

Galyon was the story of the afternoon for the Railsplitters, as he jumped from 16th place after day one into a tie for the top spot in the individual standings after posting a three-under par 69 on Tuesday. Galyon fell short in the one-hole playoff to Mount Olive’s Sebastian Andersen, who brought home individual medalist distinctions. Galyon capped the event with a 72+69=141;-3.

Freshman Kurtis Campbell was next in line for LMU, as he carded a 145 to finish in a four-way tie for 14th place.

After that pair, junior Tre Mullins (Big Stone Gap, Va.) posted a 148 to earn himself a spot in 27th place. Junior Rand Wasson (Norris, Tenn.) churned out rounds of 76 (+4) and 73 (+1) to cap the Myrtle Beach Intercollegiate in a tie for 34th. Sophomore Connor Froning (Knoxville) rebounded from a nine-over par 79 on Monday with an even par 72 on Tuesday, taking home a share of 46th place with a seven-over total.

Competing as an individual, John Corum (Powell) tallied outings of 73 (+1) and 80 (+8) to finish in a four-way tie for 57th place.

The Railsplitters are set to get back on the course on Oct. 14, returning to their home track for the State Farm Intercollegiate. That two-day event is held at Woodlake Golf Club in Tazewell.
