Golfers Tied for Second at Brickyard Collegiate

Oct. 9, 2010

Macon, Ga. – John-Tyler Griffin fired a 3-under-par 69 Saturday, and Kyle Scott stayed close to the individual lead with a 71 as Georgia Tech inched up to a tie for second place after 36 holes of the Brickyard Collegiate golf tournament.

The 8th-ranked Yellow Jackets posted a 1-over-par total of 289 on the day and stand at 4-over 580 for 36 holes, tied with Florida State, which had the day’s best team round of 6-under 282. Tech and FSU are nine strokes behind Georgia, however, headed into Sunday’s final round. The Bulldogs shot 284 Saturday and have a two-round score of 571, five shots under par.

Reigning NCAA champion Augusta State is tied for fourth with Chattanooga at 7-over 583.

Griffin, a senior from Wilson, N.C., reversed course from his opening round of 75, recording three birdies on his and a closing eagle on the par-5 18th and moved into a tie for 13th individually at even-par 144. Scott, a senior from Johannesburg, South Africa, also eagled the 18th for his 71, which left him at 5-under-par 139, one shot off the pace of Georgia’s Russell Henley, who carded a 66 Friday.

Junior James White started fast with three birdies on his front side, but settled for an even-par 72 for the Jackets Saturday and is in 12th place at 1-under-par 143. Minghao Wang and Paul Haley each shot 77.

Tech red-shirt freshman Seth Reeves continued to play well as an individual, adding a 74 to his opening 70 and is in the four-way tie for 13th along with Griffin at 144.

The Yellow Jacket tee off at 10:10 a.m. Sunday in the final round.
