Men's Golf Ties for Fourth at Las Vegas International

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (March 12) – Georgia Tech’s top-ranked golf team made up ground but fell one shot short of its third consecutive spring victory Sunday (3/12), finishing in a tie for fourth place at the Las Vegas Intercollegiate.

The Yellow Jackets, who led after the first round Friday and were tied for second after Saturday’s second round, posted a one-under-par 287 Sunday for a three-day total of 15-under-par 849, one stroke out of a three-team playoff. Arizona State (285-281-282-848), which tied with Oklahoma State (281-276-291-848) and late-charging Minnesota (283-284-281-848) after 54 holes, won in a playoff to earn the team championship. The Golden Gophers fell out after the first playoff hole before the Sun Devils used one less stroke on the second hole to clinch the victory.

All-America senior Matt Kuchar (Lake Mary, Fla.) shot a 67 Sunday and tied for seventh place individually with six others at 5-under-par 211, four strokes behind Clemson’s D.J. Trahan and Texas’ Matt Brost. In a playoff, Trahan needed three holes to outlast Brost for the tournament’s medalist honors.

All-America junior Bryce Molder (Conway, Ark.) and freshman Troy Matteson, the first-round leader, carded a 72 and 74, respectively, to tie for 17th at 213 for the Jackets. Senior Carlton Forrester (Gainesville, Fla.), 74-215, tied for 20th, and sophomore Matt Weibring (Plano, Texas), 76-220, tied for 46th.
