SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Trevecca freshman Blain Turner won his first career tournament with a medalist-worthy three-under par (69-72=141) at the Dan Salisbury Memorial hosted by the University of Illinois-Springfield at the Panther Creek Country Club last weekend.

The former Wilson Central star led the tournament in par three scoring averaging a two-under par 2.75. He also finished second in the field with eight birdies and third with 24 pars.

His 141 36-hole total is tied for the eighth lowest tournament score in Trevecca’s program history.

Turner's 69 on Saturday is the 12th lowest round in school history. He is one of four current Trojans who have recorded a 69.

At his first collegiate tournament last month in Findlay, Ohio, Turner took third overall with a 1-under par at the Great Midwest Athletic Conference Fall Invitational.
