Western New Mexico pair down the field at Las Cruces as Grand Canyon score double whammy

Harry Wetton from Bedford, a senior-year student at Western New Mexico University, and team-mate Ross White, a junior from Dollar, finished T52 and T66 in a field of 87 at the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate at the University course, Las Cruces, New Mexico in October over a par 71 course of 7,242yd.

Wetton (pictured left) had rounds of 72, 76 and 76 for 225 while White scored 78, 75 and 75 for 228.
Winner was Matt McClung (Grand Canyon) with three excellent scores of 65, 69 and 68 for 11-under-par 202. He won by one stroke and helped Grand Canyon to win the team event.
Odessa College, Texas had some players in the field but not Scot Chris Finnie, a freshman from Lockerbie. Chris was the Dumfries-shire men's stroke-play champion and the Lockerbie club champion in 2016 but it will probably take him time to settle in Texas before he shows his true form in the second half of the US college golf season.

Grand Canyon (837) were the team winners at Las Cruces, winning comfortably from Texas El Paso (85) and Wichita State (857). New Mexico State (860) came next and Odessa College (861) finish fifth.
Western New Mexico (903) tied for 13th place.
