Congrats to DU alum Charlie Soule who battled his way to a 9th place tie at the Colorado Open. Charlie led after after the first round and never collapsed under the pressure. He was under par all four rounds and his opening round 65 was the second best score of the Tournament. The $3,383.33 paycheck probably won't cover a new set of custom golf clubs, but he has to be thinking of trying a few more events this year.
