Golfers Tie for Ninth at Preview Invitational

Oct. 4, 2006

ATLANTA –

Kevin Larsen shot a three-under-par 67 Wednesday, while teammates Cameron Tringale and Adam Cohan each posted 68s as Georgia Tech rallied to tie for ninth in the final standings at the PING/Golfweek Preview Invitational at Williamsburg, Va.

On a day when scores were significantly lower across the board on the par-70 Gold Course at Golden Horseshoe Golf Club, Tech posted a two-under-par team score of 278, 10 strokes better than its first-round score, and advanced from a tie for 12th after 36 holes to a tie for ninth with Kentucky, which shot 289.

Florida (6-under 834) shot 272 Wednesday and rallied past defending national champion Oklahoma State (2-under 838) for a four-shot victory. Texas A&M was the only other team under par for the tournament (1-under) and finished third, followed by UNLV and Georgia.

Larsen, a senior from Santa Barbara, Calif., reversed his misfortune from the first two days with two birdies and an eagle to offset just one bogey for his low round of the fall. Tringale, a sophomore from Laguna Niguel, Calif., had no bogeys in his round of 68, while Cohan, a sophomore from Wayne, Pa., birdied five holes en route to his 68.

Tringale was Tech’s high finisher for the tournament, tying for 31st place at five-over-par 215, while Cohan posted his best finish (tie for 38th) in five collegiate events at 217. Larsen tied for 44th at 218.

Billy Horschel of Florida shot a 63 Wednesday and took a two-shot victory (7-under 203) over Brian Harman of Georgia. Daniel Summerhays of Brigham Young set a course record with a 10-under-par 60 Wednesday.

Taylor Hall, a sophomore from LaGrange, Ga., shot 75 Wednesday and finished in a tie for 54th at 221, while Roberto Castro, a senior from Alpharetta, Ga., carded a 76 and tied for 51st at 220.

Tech is off until Oct. 22, when it competes in its final fall event at the Isleworth-UCF Collegiate Invitational in Windermere, Fla.
