Men's Golf - Wed, Feb. 26, 2014
Madison Huegel improved upon his round one 79, shaving seven strokes and finishing second at the Georgetown Invitational in Florida at World Golf Village. The freshman was joined in the top five by teammate Jacob Flora as the Tigers again shot a 326 and finished second overall for the two-day match.
Huegel's impressive round two put him just five-shots back of medalist for Georgetown College men's golf spring opener. He leap-frogged William Carey's Michael Maley and Kyle Curtis. Flora moved up two spots from day one, taking two-strokes off his first day total for a 79 in round two.
"It was sort of a logjam after day one in the middle of the pack," said GC coach Flash Williams. "Jacob and Madison came out and played strong. It was very exciting to keep track of all day and a good first outing for the season."
WC's Keaton Stamps took the top spot, but also had to shoot two shots better on day two to keep Huegel's surge at bay.
Dylan Underwood's two-day total of 168 put him in 10th, while Brett Doggett rounded out the Tiger scorers with a 173.
Overall the team shot a 652, finishing 12 strokes ahead of Shenandoah University.
Now the Tigers have more than a month to practice and prepare for the next match – the Mid-South Conference match at Linwood Golf Course in Jamestown, Ky.
