Tech Golfers Fall to 10th at Southern Highlands Collegiate

March 9, 2008

Cameron Tringale shot a 4-over-par 76 Sunday and finished in a tie for seventh place, and sixth-ranked Georgia Tech faltered down the stretch and fell to a tie for 10th place in the final results at the Southern Highlands Collegiate in Las Vegas, Nev.

The Yellow Jackets’ four counting players lost 12 shots to par over the final four holes at the 7,510-yard, par 72 Southern Highlands Golf Club, posting four double-bogeys and four bogeys.

UNLV, the host school, and Charlotte shot the day’s best scores (5-over-par 293) and finished 1-2 in the team race. The Rebels finished at 5-over-par 869, two shots ahead of the 49ers. Georgia was third at 8-over, followed by Southern California (+14) and UCLA (+17) in the top five.

Tech finished in a tie for 10th with Arizona at 33-over-par, 28 strokes off the lead.

Tringale, a junior from Laguna Niguel, Calif., stood at even par for the round after 14 holes but double-bogeyed the next two holes. Still, he tied for seventh place at even-par 216 with Rickie Fowler of Oklahoma State and Adam Mitchell of Georgia, three shots behind the leaders.

Hadley, a sophomore from Raleigh, N.C., had one birdie and three bogeys in his round of 74, and finished 12th individually at 2-over 218. It was Hadley’s first finish outside the top 10 since last spring’s United States Collegiate Championship.

Rory Hie of Southern California won a one-hole playoff involving Georgia’s Hudson Swafford and Charlotte’s Jona Enander Hedin, making birdie on the 18th hole. The three players each finished 54 holes at 3-under-par 213.

Taylor Hall finished in a tie for 53rd (13-over 229) following a 78 Sunday, while John Tyler Griffin, Tech’s fourth counting player Sunday with a 77, finished 67th (21-over 237). David Dragoo shot 82 Sunday and tied for 71st (23-over 239).

Tech is off until Mar. 24, when it hosts the third United States Collegiate at the Golf Club of Georgia.
