Craig Stephen from Torphins scores first college win in America
ANDERSON, South Carolina – Brevard University senior-year golfer Craig Stephen from Torphins captured the first tournament title of his US collegiate career on Tuesday by firing a two-over-par total of 146 at the Anderson Invitational in Anderson, South Carolina
Aboyne Golf Club champion Stephen, who entered the second round in sixth place and three shots off the pace set by day one leader Elias Birkeland (Georgia Southwestern), carded a 70, the lowest round of the tournament, to win by four strokes.
"It was nice to get my first collegiate win and a great way to start the college golf year," said Stephen. "It was my goal to win a college tournament and I'm excited to say I've done that now."
Joining Stephen among top performers for the Tornados was Calum McAndrew, who finished in a three-way tie for 14th after firing a 156 (+12). McAndrew, who hails from Fife, rebounded from a difficult first round performance, which resulted in an 81, to record a 75 in day two action.
 Declan Addison from Peterhead had scores of 91 and 86 for a total of 177.
Brevard College finished fourth as a team in the event with scores of 321 and 309, 15 strokes behind team champion Georgia Southwestern (615, despite a pair of eagles at the event by Stephen.
The Tornados return to action next week at the Tusculum College Tournament (Sept 25-26).
