Silvis, Ill.–Zachary Chegwidden (So., Essex, England, Business Management) wrapped up a successful first trip to The Dance with a 76 in the final round of the NAIA Men’s Golf National Championships Friday.

Chegwidden’s round placed him in a tie for 48th at 10-over 294 (75-71-72-76). The sophomore’s day was highlighted by birdies on Holes 2, 6, 15, and 16, but unfortunately he also posted a pair of double bogeys and had five other bogeys in an adventurous 18 holes.

Chegwidden was only seven strokes away from being in the top 20; a total of 10 linksters went under par for the tournament.

Sebastian Rulis (Sr., Helsingor, Denmark, Business Management) led the rest of WPU’s crew, tying for 57th through three rounds at 222 (73-76-73), just three shots away from making the 54-hole cut.

Frederik Lundsgaard (Sr., Jebjerg, Denmark, History/Government) finished at 223 (75-70-78) to tie for 73rd, while Zach Swink (Sr., Burlington, Iowa, Sociology) was 135th at 240 (76-80-84) and Oscar Florez Martinez (Fr., Gignon, Spain, Business Management) tied for 149th at 249 (85-81-83).

As a team, William Penn shot a 901 (299-297-305) to place 20th out of 29 teams at the par-71 TPC Deere Run Golf Course. Oklahoma City took over the lead at the midway point and ran away with the crown (its 11th all-time) at nine-under 1,127 (290-282-276-279). On the individual side, S.M. Lee of Dalton State also rolled to his crown at 12-under 272 (69-68-66-69).
