Cover fell to Wu, an All-America selection last spring, when he bogeyed on 16 to fall a hole back. He was unable to draw even on neither the 17th or 18th holes. Neither golfer was able to gain more than a one-hole lead throughout the 18 holes. Cover rallied on holes six and seven, erasing a one-hole deficit to take the lead on the front nine.

Cover returns for his senior season with UNCW and opens the year at the Turning Stone Intercollegiate in Verona, N.Y., on Sept. 3-4.
