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.
Georgetown men's golf had four of its scoring players finish in the Top 8 of round one Monday in the team's opening tournament in Florida at the World Golf Village. The Tigers were led by Madison Huegel's 79. The freshman from Georgia finished tied for fifth.
"It's been a crazy preseason for us and after day one I'm pretty happy with how our guys were playing," said GC coach Flash Williams. "At the end of the fall season we were shooting around 321 average as a team. To open the spring season, after not really being able to practice much outside, we shot a 326.
"Madison played very well and I was glad to see him in the Top 5. All our scorers were in the Top 10."
Monday was Veterans' Day. This is a time to take a moment to remember those who have fallen and fought to allow us at Georgetown College to enjoy the freedoms of faith, knowledge and the pursuit of dreams.
