ORLANDO, Fla. – Senior David Sullivan (Woodstock, Georgia) had a strong second day of action at the McDonough Cup, powering Georgia College Golf to a three-way tie for 14th in the 22-team event, hosted by Rollins College.
The Bobcats finished a pair of rounds today, as yesterday's second round went unfinished due to darkness. The team shot rounds of 290 and 294 today, grouped with yesterday's 293 for plus-13 overall on the par-72, 6,955-yard Rio Pinar Country Club.
Sullivan finished 17th, getting progressively better each round with a 74-70-69. He finished three-under par, tying with the Nos. 8 and 9 golfers in the nation. Sullivan did not post a single bogey in round three.
Second on the squad was a two-way tie as both junior Harrison Stewart (Roswell, Georgia) and sophomore Thomas Hodges (Monroe, Georgia) finished seven-over in 78th place. Stewart posted a career-low 69 in round one, followed up with a 75 and 79 today. Hodges bookended a pair of 75s with a second-round 73.
Third on the squad and 86th overall was Conner Albright (Macon, Georgia). Albright's best round was his last, posting a 73 in the third to go with a 75 and 77 over the first two. He was nine-over. Junior Harry Lambert (Suwanee, Georgia) rounded out the scoring for the Bobcats at 12 over, posting rounds of 79, 72 and 77.
No. 17 Lynn University won the team title, thanks in large part to a blistering 19-under pace in the final round. The Knights beat the field by 15 strokes. Of the 13 teams in front of the Bobcats in the final standings, all but one appear in the latest GolfStat Head-to-Head top-25.
