Yellow Jackets Four Strokes Back After One Round Of Spring Opener

Feb. 6, 2008

HILO, HAWAI’I — Junior All-American Cameron Tringale shot a 5-under par 65 and fifth-ranked Georgia Tech is tied for fifth place after one round of the 54-hole UH-Hilo Intercollegiate on Wednesday.

The Yellow Jackets, playing in their first tournament of the spring season, shot a cumulative 5-under par 275 Wednesday and are just four strokes off the pace in the 18-team field. Three Tech players, including Tringale, shot even par 70 or better in the opening round.

The second round is scheduled for Thursday and the final round set for Friday. Three teams ranked in the nation’s top 10, according to Golf Week, and nine teams ranked in the top 50, are competing this week.

Playing on the par 70, 6,738-yard Waikoloa Village Golf Course on the Big Island, Georgia Tech is four strokes behind co-leaders Arizona State (-9) and 16h-ranked Texas Tech (-9). Oregon State (-7) is alone in third place and 7th-ranked Southern California (-6) is in fourth place. Georgia Tech and 9th-ranked defending NCAA champion Stanford are tied for fifth.

Georgia Tech has opened its spring season on the Big Island in each of the last 10 years and have won the team title five times, most recently in 2006 when Tringale, then a freshman, earned his first collegiate victory.

Tringale shot a solid 32-33–65 (-5) on Wednesday and is just one stroke behind individual leader Stephan Gross (-6) of Arizona State. Tringale is tied with Stanford’s Rob Grube for second place and he is one shot in front of a pack of four players at 4-under par.

Tech sophomore Chesson Hadley (-2) shot a 35-33–68 and is tied for 13th overall. Junior David Dragoo fired a 34-36–70 (E) and is tied for 29th. Yellow Jacket freshman Paul Haley (+2) is tied for 52nd and sophomore Daniel Bowden (+7) is tied for 89th.

Tech finished fourth last year in this event while recording its lowest score of the year, a 22-under-par total of 818. Tringale tied for fifth at 9-under-par 201, and Chesson Hadley, making his collegiate debut, tied for 18th at 5-under-par 205.
