Calum Hill from Kinross ties for third in first 

event of 2015-16 US college season

DENVER, Colorado.– Following one of the top final rounds of the day, the Western New Mexico University men's golf team made a strong push for the top spot before settling for second after the third round wrapped up the RMAC #1 North Invitational at the Heritage at Todd Creek Golf Course this week.

Four golfers posted top-11 finishes to power the Mustangs as they moved from third to second carding rounds of 285-298-296 for an 879, besting Colorado State University-Pueblo by a stroke. UC-Colorado Springs claimed the top spot with a 873 and also had the top individual in Colin Prater who tallied a 214 to win by a shot.
Senior All-American Calum Hill (Kinross, Scotland/Kinross HS), pictured,  saved his best golf for last as he moved up the leaderboard with a three-under 69 and into a tie for third with a 216 following opening rounds of 73 and 74. He landed in fourth in terms of par-five scoring (4.42) and tied for the lead in birdies with 16. 

Fellow senior All-American Thomas Neve (Epsom, England/Cams Hill School/Merrist College) wasn't far behind as he was near the top throughout the tournament and ended with a 219 to tie for ninth. 
Neve was right behind Hill in birdies, landing in fourth with 14 and tied Hill in par-four scoring (4.13). He used a solid starting round of 69 to pace his play, as he also added scores of 72 and 78. 
Junior All-American Harry Wetton (Bedford, England/The Bedford School) tied for 11th on  222. Wetton was consistent as he had the same round scores of 74. He tied for fourth in par-four scoring (4.10). 
Sophomore Ross White (Dollar, Scotland/Kinross HS) rounded out the golfers for the Mustangs with a 241 (79-78-84) to land in 59th.
Robbie Kemsley (Glasgow, Scotland/High School of Glasgow), who entered as an individual, just recorded a first round score of 77 before withdrawing from the rest of the tournament

WNMU will now prepare for a pair of WNMU hosted events, first on Sep. 28-29 in the WNMU Fall Intercollegiate that will take place in Las Cruces at the University Golf Course. Then in October from the 12-13 at the RMAC South Invitational in Albuquerque at the Paa-Ko Ridge Golf Course.
