Men’s golf seventh after opening round of CAA Championships

ST. HELENA ISLAND, SC— The William & Mary men’s golf team is seventh after the opening round of the 2024 CAA Men’s Golf Championships at Dataw Island Club.

The 54-hole event will be contested on the club’s Cotton Dike Course, with UNCW leading the way at 20-under. The Tribe posted a 6-over score of 294 on Sunday.

Charlie Bundy And Preston Burton were the pacesetters for W&M in the opening round, each shooting 1-over 73, good for a tie for 24e.

Bundy pulled off an extremely clean card to get the tournament started. The sophomore started his round on the back nine, like the rest of the William & Mary squad, and made the turn at even-par thanks to seven pars, a birdie and a bogey. Bundy added one bogey and eight pars on the front nine to score 73.

Burton’s round was much more eventful than Bundy’s, but still ended with the same score. The freshman made five birdies and an eagle in his CAA Championship debut. He finished the opening round strong, making birdies on two of his last three holes.

Logan Hunter And Scott Hannah were just one shot away from their teammates, posting 74 on Sunday and are tied for 28e. Hunter made six birdies on the day and was sixth in the field, while Hanna’s round consisted of 14 pars, a birdie and a bogey.

Lucas Walmet rounded out the lineup for the Tribe with a 76. He sits at T-41 after 18 holes.

The second round of the championships starts on Monday at 8:30 am
