ANKENY – Adam Moyers (Sr.-Burlington, Iowa) just missed a top 10 finish individually and the Iowa Wesleyan College men’s golf team opened its 2009 season by finishing seventh of 15 teams at the two-day Grand View University Classic at Otter Creek Golf Course.
Moyers opened with a round of two-over par 73 on the par-71 course, and then finished with a round of 75 on Wednesday to tie for 12th individually. He helped the Tigers finish with a two-day team score of 610, placing seventh overall and fifth among varsity teams at the meet.
Host school Grand View came from behind on the second day to win the tourney with a team score of 571. Iowa State was second and was followed by St. Ambrose, the Grand View junior varsity, and the St. Ambrose junior varsity.
Following Moyers for IWC were Mark Cleary (So.-London, England) and Ryan Grun (Fr.-Kansas City, Mo.), who tied for 33rd with matching scores of 154.
