Tringale Rallies for Top-10 Finish at Hilo

Feb. 6, 2009

Kohala Coast, Hawai’i –

Cameron Tringale fired a 5-under-par 67 Friday to finish in a tie for 10th individually, while 10th-ranked Georgia Tech posted a 5-under 283 for the day and finished ninth at the UH-Hilo Intercollegiate.

Tringale, who posted his seventh round of par or better and his fifth round of 15 in the 60s this year, advanced 13 spots and tied with Tom Hoge of TCU at 2-under-par 214, four shots off the lead. The Laguna Niguel, Calif., senior earned his fourth top-10 finish in five tournaments this year.

Fellow senior David Dragoo, improving a stroke each round of the tournament, fired a 1-under 71 Friday and wound up in a tie for 12th place at even-par 216. It was the third top-20 finish in five events this year for the Scottsdale, Ariz., native.

The two seniors paced Tech on a day when the prevailing winds calmed and the Jackets’ 283 total was better by only two teams. Tech finished at 15-over 879 for the tournament, 28 shots behind Southern California.

“I was glad to see Cameron and David continue to carry the flag for us,” said Tech coach Bruce Heppler. “We played a lot better today. Hopefully we can get everybody else going and keep working.”

The No. 2-ranked Trojans (13-under-par 851) were one of the two teams posting a 282 Friday and coasted to the team title by 11 shots over No. 11 Washington (2-under 862). TCU, which also shot 282 Friday, was jumped to third place at 6-over 870, followed by Stanford (8-over), Oregon (9-over), Colorado (10-over), Arizona State (11-over) and Texas Tech (12-over).

The Huskies’ Nick Taylor (6-under 210) shot 70 Friday and captured medalist honors by one stroke over USC’s Jamie Lovemark (5-under 211), who shot 69 Friday. Colorado’s Pat Grady, Washington’s Richard Lee and Chris Killmer, and Arizona State’s Stephan Gross tied for third place at 4-under 212.

Sophomore J.T. Griffin shot 73 for Tech Friday and finished in a tie for 39th, while junior Chesson Hadley shot 75 and tied for 56th, and freshman James White carded an even-par 72 and finished in a tie for 60th.

Tech is off until Feb. 27, when it begins play in the Puerto Rico Classic.
