Bruins golf earns sixth place at Reinhardt Invitational in Georgia

The Bruins golf team traveled to Georgia on Friday, Oct. 25, for a weekend of golf and service, as the team exemplified the Christian spirit behind Bruins athletics by sharing testimonies and serving at a church nearby the tournament site.

The two-day Reinhardt University Invitational in Waleska, Ga., began on Monday morning, as freshman Zeier Fleming shot a 74, both freshman Micah Gold and junior Clay Wiginton shot 79s, and sophomore Paiton Wiginton finished with an 82.

On Tuesday, the Bruins held consistent scores with the previous day’s numbers but failed to qualify for the NCCAA National Championship. Clay Wiginton shot a 74, Gold a 78, Paiton Wiginton a 79, and sophomore Kyle James added an 83. Overall, the Bruins placed sixth out of nine teams. “This was a good weekend for us to bond as a team,” Clay Wiginton said. “It was great for all of us to be together and build a relationship with a church and pastor.”

The Bruins golf team, now 1-5, will travel to North Carolina for their last tournament of the season next weekend.
