EAU CLAIRE - Mike Greer (Sr. -Vadnais Heights, MN/White Bear Lake) leads all 80 golfers at the Frank Wrigglesworth Invite on the grounds of the Eau Claire Country Club while the UW-Eau Claire men's golf team is second out of 15 after the first round.
Greer fired a one-under-par score of 70 today on the 6,672-yard course. He shot 36 on the front nine and followed up with a 34 on the back end. The 34 tied for best back nine score of the day. Greer shot one-under on par 3s, one over on par 4s and leads the pack in birdies with five. St. John's Joe Schoolmeesters is one stroke behind him with an even 71.
Teammate Mason Milner (Jr.-Onalaska), who also shot 34 on the back end, lurks two strokes behind Greer at one-over. Milner leads in par 4s with a one-under score on such holes and is one behind the leaders in pars on the day with 14.
Meanwhile, Cody Peterson (So.-Chippewa Falls) fired a 76 to tie for 19th and Ben Ziemann (Fr.-Eau Claire/Memorial) tallied 78 strokes for a 31st place tie. Ziemann's 14 pars and Peterson's 13 both are near the top for the first round.
