Golf Team Advances to Semifinals of Hooters Match Play

Nov. 11, 2005

ATLANTA – Senior Mike Barbosa and freshmen Adam Cohan and David Dragoo each won two matches Friday as Georgia Tech swept Missouri, 5-0, in the first round of the Hooter Collegiate Match Play Championship, and the Yellow Jackets claimed a second-round win over Arizona State.

The third-ranked Yellow Jackets, runner-up in this event last fall, have advanced to a semi-final match against Stanford Saturday at the Mission Inn Golf and Tennis Resort. Tech defeated the Sun Devils, 3-1-1, Friday afternoon before play was called due to darkness with other matches still to be completed.

The Cardinal defeated Oklahoma State Friday, 3-2, in their first-round match, then advanced to the semifinals with a 3-1-1 win over Coastal Carolina.

The Hooters Collegiate Match Play Championship is a 16-team double-elimination event in which invitations are made based on the previous year’s NCAA Championship finish. The teams, seeded 1 to 16, each field five players for individual matches against five players from their opponent.

In Tech’s sweep of Missouri, freshman Cameron Tringale defeated Ben Scott, 3-up, Barbosa won his match against Shawn Jasper, 3 and 1, Cohan downed John Kelly, 4 and 3, Taylor Hall dispatched Chris Mabry, 3 and 2, and Dragoo defeated Tyler Dunn, 5 and 4.

In the second round against Arizona State, Barbosa defeated Alejandro Canizares, 4 and 3, Cohan downed Charly Simon, 3 and 2, and Dragoo routed Ryan Kelley 5 and 3. Tringale halved his match with Benjamin Alvarado, and Hall lost to Niklas Lemke, 4 and 3.

Play will resume at 8 a.m. Saturday for the completion of the second round, and semi-final matches will commence at 10 a.m.
