April 25, 2014Tweet
Angels Camp, Calif—The Binghamton University golf team concluded round one of the America Sky Championship in fifth place with a 18-hole team score of 317 from a soggy Greenhorn Creek Resort course. Senior Bryce Edmister paced Binghamton with an opening round 75 (+3) on Friday afternoon.
Edmister’s 75 puts him in a tie for 7th place with one other player. The Webster, NY native started off hot on Friday, recording a pair of birdies through his first five holes to take an early lead over the 35-man field. Edmister had a difficult stretch in, playing his final 10 holes in wet conditions that resulted in him giving up five strokes. The two-time PING All-Region selected led BU with three birdies.
Junior Jack Sedgewick had Binghamton’s second best round of the afternoon, carding a 78 (+6) at Greenghorn Creek Resort. After going out in 42, Sedgewick bounced back with an even par 36 on the back-nine. He made birdie on back-to-back holes on 9 &10 and made seven straight pars to grab hold of a tie for 13th place.
Underclassmen Jesse Perkins and Kyle Wambold rounded out BU’s scoring in round one. Perkins, who had his best finish of the season last weekend in the Rutherford Invitational, tallied an 81 (+9) on Friday. Like Sedgewick, Perkins recovered from a difficult first nine holes to shoot 36 on the back. Wambold, BU’s lone freshman in the starting lineup, made 10 pars on his way to an 83 (+11) on Friday.
Northern Colorado are the leaders in the clubhouse after round one, shooting a 296, nine shots clear of second-place Sacramento State. Northern Colorado’s Steven Kupcho holds the individual lead after an even par 72. Kupcho is the leader by one stroke over four players at +1.
The Bearcats will tee off in tomorrow’s second round beginning at 11:50 p.m. (EST). They will be paired with Weber State (6th), North Dakota (7th) and Southern Utah (4th) on Saturday morning from Angels Camp, California.
