Men's Golf - Wed, Apr. 3, 2013
Georgetown College men's golf team finally got in a full match Monday and Tuesday in London, Ky. at the SEKI Tournament. Rain washed out its first attempt at a spring event in Florida late February.
The Tigers showed some rust in the opening round, finishing tied for 15 with a 347. They dropped 37 strokes on day two and finished in 13th place for the tournament.
"We have to find some consistency right now and it's been hard to do with so much up and down in the weather," said GC coach Flash Williams. "We've battled rain and snow thus far, but I think if we can start getting in some good rounds we will be fine come the conference match."
J.T. Ross led the way, scoring a 159 for the two-days. Morgan Reed shot a 162. Dylan Underwood finished with a 164 and Brett Doggett rounded out the scorers with a 172. All four finished inside the top 70 for the tournament field of 95.
University of the Cumberlands, host of the event, won by 23 strokes better than second place finisher Holy Cross College out of Indiana. The Patriots shot a 592.
Lindsey Wilson, another MSC team, finished third. Cumberland University was seventh. University of Pikeville took eighth and University of Virginia College at Wise 10th. Campbellsville University finished just ahead of the Tigers in 12th with 654. From Cumberland University to Georgetown, just 17 strokes was the difference.
"We have a better first day and we are up there in the top 10," said Williams.
Bluefield College, St. Catharine College and Shawnee State University finished 14th, 15th and 16th respectively.
Georgetown returns to the links April 15-16 in their own Bluegrass Invitational at Cherry Blossom.
