LITCHFIELD, Ariz. - Western Washington University's Kyle Schrader (Jr., Olympia/Tumwater) tied for 28th place at the Patriot All-America Invitational which ended Tuesday at The Wigwam Golf Club Gold Course.
The three-day, 54-hole stroke play event, which featured 83 of the nation's top collegiate golfers, benefited the Folds of Honor Foundation.
Schrader posted rounds of 76, 72 and 72 for a 220 total, 10 over par.
The Folds of Honor Foundation salutes the sacrifice of fallen and disabled service members by ensuring their families are not left behind. Through scholarships and other assistance, they provide healing and hope to their families and seek to rally the nation in support of those who have served and sacrificed for the United States.
Each player was issued a specially designed red, white and blue golf bag during the event. Inscribed on it was the name of a fallen soldier that player represented. Following the tournament, each player brings the bag home where it is auctioned off with the proceeds going to the Folds of Honor Foundation.
A junior from Olympia (graduate of Tumwater High School), Schrader is averaging 76.5 strokes per round for the Vikings this season. Last year he helped WWU to the semifinals at the NCAA Division II National Championship, taking medalist honors at the South Central/West Regional and being named to the Golf Coaches Association of America PING West Region All-Star team.
It is the second straight year that a WWU player has competed in the Patriot All-America Invitational. In 2012, the Vikings' Dylan Goodwin tied for 39th place.
