    TOLEDO, Ohio -- In its first fall tournament, Northwestern's men's golf team is tied for 10th place at the Inverness Intercollegiate Invitational, being held at the famed Inverness Club. Sophomore Dillon Dougherty (Woodland, Calif./Woodland) leads the Wildcats, sitting in sixth place at 6-over (76-72=148), four strokes off the lead. Michigan State's Ben Fox is the individual leader at 2-over (72-72=144).

    UCLA and Illinois lead the team race, with the Bruins three strokes in front of the Fighting Illini. The final round begins at 2 p.m. Saturday.

    Northwestern would have been positioned higher in the team standings, but senior T.C. Ford (Covington, La./Mandeville) was disqualified when he turned in the wrong scorecard.

    Casey Strunk (Phoenix, Ariz./Thunderbird) and Tom Johnson (Sacramento, Calif./Del Campo) are in 43rd and 58th place, respectively. Strunk is 15-over (76-81=157) and Johnson is 17-over (78-81=159). Newcomer Scott Weber (Lake Forest, Ill./Lake Forest) is in 64th place at 20-over (84-87=162).

    Featuring a 7,255-yard, par-71 course, The Inverness Club was founded in 1903 and has hosted four U.S. Opens, one U.S. Amateur, one U.S. Senior Open and two PGA Championships.
