SLU will participate in the TVA Community Credit Union Invitational on Monday
KILLEN, Alabama – The University of Southeast Louisiana men’s golf team looks to continue improving as they play in the first and second rounds of the TVA Community Credit Union Invitational hosted by North Alabama on Monday at Turtle Point Yacht and Country Club (par 72-7133 yards) starting at 8 a.m.
The 11-team tournament will feature North Alabama, Tennessee-Martin, Chicago State, Murray State, Southern Illinois, Rollins, Stetson, Alabama A&M, Texas Southern, Valparaiso and SLU.
The Lions showed signs of improvement last week at Bubba Barnett Intercollegiate as the two Logan kuehn and Cameron Mobley ended up in the Top 20 after two laps.
Kuehn, a senior, leads the team in stroke average of 74.50 despite missing the last two rounds of the season opener with stitches in his right hand from a swing. The native of Lake Charles, Louisiana, was in 12e place after 36 holes at BBI before finishing tied for 31st.
Mobley, of Brandon, Mississippi, averages a score of 75.50 per lap. The second finished last weekend tied at 27e because he had a solid second and final round where he shot 73 and 74.
Second year Grant Glorioso will look to build on their 75 (+2) final round to help the Lions rise to the top of the standings this weekend.
Senior Lions Kris kerr is still making a comeback after missing most of the 2020-21 season with injury. The Loranger, Louisiana native shot 74 (+1) in the BBI’s second round as he looks to return to his 2019-20 form where he was averaging 74.22 shots.
