Golfers Post 30-Shot Turnaround at Carpet Capital Collegiate

Nov. 5, 2005

ATLANTA – Paced by a six-under-par 66 from Kevin Larsen in Saturday’s second round, Georgia Tech’s golf team put together a 30-shot turnaround from its first round and moved up to sixth place after 36 holes at the Carpet Capital Collegiate in Rocky Face, Ga.

The third-ranked Yellow Jackets posted the day’s best team score by nine shots, a 13-under-par total of 275 at The Farm Golf Club, and are within seven shots of co-leaders Georgia and Georgia State entering Sunday’s final round.

The defending champion Bulldogs, with a four-under-par score of 284 Saturday, and the Panthers (289) each have a 36-hole total of 573, three under par and three shots ahead of Florida. Duke is in fourth place, Texas Tech in fifth.

Larsen, a junior from Santa Barbara, Calif., was consistent, posting three birdies on each side with no bogeys in his round. His two-round total of 139 (five under par) is two shots back of individual leader Chris Kirk of Georgia, who posted a 70 Saturday and is at 137 for 36 holes.

All-American Roberto Castro shot a four-under 68 for the Yellow Jackets and moved into a tie for ninth place individually at two-under 142. Starting on the 10th hole Saturday, the junior from Alpharetta birdied four holes with one bogey on his front side, and came in with two birdies and a bogey.

Freshman Cameron Tringale was the third Tech player to post a sub-70 score Saturday, carding a three-under-par 69, a 10-shot turnaround from his opening 18 holes. Senior Mike Barbosa added an even-par 72 (after an 80 Friday) for the Jackets’ fourth counting score.

The Yellow Jackets’ will tee off at 9:30 a.m. Sunday for their final round.
