Wofford’s Andrew Novak tied the Wexford Plantation course record with a 6-under-par 66 on Tuesday, capturing the Wexford Intercollegiate individual crown in a fashion that also put him in the school’s record book.
A birdie/birdie finish left Novak, a former South Carolina Amateur and state match-play champion, at 13-under 203 for the week. That smashed the Terriers’ school record for lowest total in relation to par by three shots.
The Mount Pleasant native went bogey-free over his final 36 holes, carding 11 birdies along the way.
“I got into a zone,” Novak told a school liaison. “I’ve been there before, but I don’t know if I’ve ever played 36 holes of bogey-free golf in a tournament. I hit everything straight off the tee, hit my approach shots close and made my putts.”
Campbell captured the Wexford team title, combining for a 9-under 279 on the final day to pull away by 15 shots over Louisville. Tuesday’s total was six shots better than anyone else in the final round.
Campbell’s Craig Hornberger placed third among individuals, six shots behind Novak, with teammate Gason Bertinotti another shot back.
Louisville’s J.D. Lehman, a former Hilton Head Christian standout, was one of three Cardinals among the top 10 individuals. Tuesday’s round of 70 was one shot off his lowest of the season.
