Greensboro, NC – With the NCAA Golf Championships taking place this week in Woodstock, GA, it only seems appropriate that a member of one of the Peach State’s college golf dynasties continues his strong work in the professional ranks. Roughly two years after claiming the second of back-to-back NCAA team titles as a key member of the Augusta State golf team, Mitch Krywulycz of Sylvania, Australia sits poised to claim professional win No. 1 this week. With rounds of 67-65—132, the affable Aussie will enter Friday’s third and final round of the eGolf Tour’s Sedgefield Classic with a four-shot lead, just 18 holes away from solo-victory.

The Sedgefield Classic is the 11th of 24 scheduled events on the 2013 eGolf Tour schedule, and is being contested this week at Sedgefield Country Club – Dye Course in Greensboro, NC.

Krywulycz, who entered the week with back-to-back top-15 finishes on the eGolf Tour, opened Wednesday’s first round with a stellar 3-under 67 to sit in a tie for second heading into Thursday’s second round of play.

Starting on the back nine, the 25-year-old Krywulycz birdied two of his first six holes to move to 4-under for the week, but it was a birdie at the par-4 17th that opened his charge.

“The birdie on 17 really got me going. After that, I knew the rest was going to play tough, but I knew there were a few holes out there that I could take advantage of,” he said. “That hole was a catalyst.”

After turning at 2-under 33, Krywulycz kept his foot on the gas, notching birdies at Nos. 2 and 3 to vault to 7-under for the tournament and 4-under for his round.

“The greens are so pure,” Krywulycz said. “If you can get it on the green inside of 20 feet, you definitely have a chance.”
