  • Shipley enjoyed the best tournament of his career in his Buckeye debut earlier this month, carding a 60under 210. He led the team for the week with 16 birdies in the three rounds.
  • Alford and Wallin made it five Buckeyes who finished under-par at the Frederica Cup. Alford was 2-under par, matching his career-best finish. Wallin was steady with round of 71-73-71 to finish at 1-under par.
  • This week will be the Buckeye debut for Joe Wilson IV and Topher Reed.
