Trey Lawson breaks local course record

From CU Sports Information

LAWTON, Okla.–Trey Lawson, a senior on Cameron’s men’s golf team and Cameron’s representative in last spring’s NCAA National Championship fired a course record – 61 at the Fort Sill Golf Club on Thursday.

His 11-under round is believed to be the lowest round ever by a Cameron player. The bogeyless round included nine birdies (holes 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11, 14, and 16) and an eagle on seven. He narrowly missed an opportunity to shoot an unbelievable 59 when he missed a four-footer on 13, and an uphill 10-footer. Trey was playing with Garrett Smith and Clint Powell when he shot his 61.

In the 2011-12 season, Lawson led the team with 31 rounds played, placed 4th at the NCAA South Central regional (74, 71, 71), and finished in a tie for 39th at the NCAA National Golf Tournament (71, 74, 76). His lowest nine-hole score in collegiate competition was a 66 in the third round of the 2011 Oklahoma Intercollegiate Tournament.

The Cameron golfer is from Holiday, Texas and is the son of Mr. & Mrs. Barry Lawson.
