Golf Finishes Eighth At Taylor Made Intercollegiate

ATLANTA (Feb. 17) – The Georgia Tech men’s golf team finished with the second-lowest round of the tournament to place eighth at the Taylor Made Intercollegiate Feb. 17. The 54-hole event was contested at the Waikoloa King’s and Waikoloa Beach Courses in Waikoloa, Hawaii.

The Yellow Jackets recorded a team round of 282 on the final day, and made up some ground to finish with a team total of 321-320-282=928. That score was well off the pace of team champion Texas, which handled the windy conditions earlier in the week to finish with a score of 302-310-281=893.

The Tech individuals in the field were led by senior Bryce Molder and sophomore Troy Matteson, as they tied for 13th place with three-day totals of 76-82-67=225 and 75-78-72=225 respectively.

That duo was followed by junior Matt Weibring and Wes Latimer, who both placed in a tie for 67th with scores of 85-80-72=237 and 85-81-71=237.

The final member of Tech’s group in the event was junior Kris Mikkelsen, who was part of a tie for 96th with a score of 87-81-75=243.
