ETSU golfers in the pros? - Sportsman_17 - 06-22-2018 09:54 AM

I've played golf since I was 14 years old (29 now) and Phil Mickelson has always been my favorite because I am a lefty. Since Phil has seemed to lose his mojo and is almost never in contention anymore I started thinking to myself who else could I root for? So I decided to Google "ETSU golfers in the pros." And that's when I came across this article for the first time.

Best ETSU story I have ever read and never knew about until now. I figured someone on here with more ETSU knowledge than myself would know of other current players that are former Bucs I could root for along with Rhys Davies and Seamus Power (who is playing great this weekend again). Thanks in advance.

Go to the thread "2017 Golf" for several posts about this subject, and earlier, the thread entitled "The Masters", where it was mentioned. Fred still gets asked about it all the time, and the story crops up in local media every once in a while, especially when Rory is doing well in one of the majors.

Finally...…..by using the search function on the JC Press site, and entering "McIlroy", several articles (as I alluded to above) appear. You may also want to peruse those. This story is well known by most Buc fans:

McIlroy articles (along with many others mentions)

I have been keeping up with Seamus Power weekly. Hoping he can put together 4 rounds. Wouldn't be surprised by some top 10's soon

I have nothing but good thoughts for that kid. It was a damn shame what happened to his younger brother, who was perhaps even better than Rhys is, and was all set to join him here. Ben was one of the highest-ranked British high school golfers at the time.

Rhys is by all accounts a class young man, and he was a fine player for us, and chose to stay here with his "ETSU brothers" after Ben's death. He's always said good things about his time here. Here's to his doing well in the Open.

First round of 74 - 6 bogeys and 3 birdies, to be +3. Tied for 110th. Needs to have a much better day tomorrow.

[edit: ended up tied for 96th after everyone else finished their rounds.]

Other updates.....

Kuramoto/Power updates

Also.....Enoch is 1 under after 3 holes today.

[edit: And...…...he makes the cut, with the last batch, at +3, shooting even par for the day.]


RE: ETSU golfers in the pros? - Sportsman_17 - 07-20-2018 05:18 PM

Rhys Enoch makes the cut at The Open with a score of +3 (T65) after 2 rounds, leader at -6.

Seamus Power is at the Barbasol Championship and T21 at -6, leader at -15 with the 2nd round suspended.

Go Bucs 04-rock


RE: ETSU golfers in the pros? - posterformerlyknownasthedoctor - 07-22-2018 07:01 AM

Rhys Enoch is not going to win the British Open.
After a nice 70 yesterday, he's blowing up today, at +4 after 13 holes so far - in what are probably more challenging conditions.

[edit: finished +5 on the day, 76. +7 for the tournament, currently tied for 68th, but that's not likely how the ordinal finish will be - but may be close. Lots of folks shooting over par today. That 'other' ETSU golfer, McIlroy, is currently sitting tied for 10th, 5 shots off the leaders.]
