Tech Golfers Finish 11th at Toyota Collegiate Championship

March 9, 2003

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – The Georgia Tech golf team struggled on the final day of play and fell to an 11th-place finish at the conclusion of the Toyota Men’s Collegiate Championship. The 54-hole event was played at the par-72, 7,440-yard Southern Highlands Golf Club in Las Vegas, Nev.

The Yellow Jackets concluded play in the tournament with a team score of 8-over-par 296 and had a three-round total of 9-over-par, 289-288-296-873. That score put Tech well off the pace of team champion Oklahoma State, which recorded a closing-round score of 7-under-par 281 and finished at 8-under-par, 291-284-281-856.

Senior Troy Matteson was the Jackets’ top individual finisher, as he tied for 22nd place at even-par 71-73-72-216. He was eight shots behind individual medalist Ryan Moore of UNLV, who concluded the tournament at 8-under-par, 71-70-67-208.

Sophomore Nicholas Thompson was the next Tech individual in the field, tying for 24th place at 1-over-par, 73-67-77-217. Senior Adam Cranford, whose 54-hole score of 69-73-80-222 tied him with eight other players for 42nd place, followed him. Rookie Thomas Jordan was part of a six-way tie for 51st place as he was one shot behind Cranford at 76-75-72-223, while sophomore Chan Wongluekiet was the final member of the Yellow Jacket contingent, tying for 64th place at 76-75-75-226.

Georgia Tech will return to action on March 17-18, when it travels to Austin, Texas to compete in the Morris Williams Intercollegiate. A full recap of results from the Toyota Collegiate Championships is available at www.golfstatlive.com.
