March 27, 2007

AUSTIN, Texas - Following a disappointing 16-over 304 under unfavorable weather conditions in the first round, the 21st-ranked Auburn men's golf team improved its score by 18 shots in the final round and finished 12th with a 304-286--590 in the Morris Williams Intercollegiate at the par-72, 6,906-yard Austin Country Club Tuesday.

The Tigers were 6-under through nine holes and climbed to seventh before falling to 12th by going 5-over in their final five holes. Auburn finished the day with 16 birdies and an eagle after recording six birdies in the first round.

Eighth-ranked UNLV claimed the title with a 288-280--568, six strokes ahead of No. 18 Tulsa (293-281--574) and No. 16 Texas A&M (287-287--574). Host and 23rd-ranked Texas finished fourth with a 296-280--576 followed by TCU (292-286--578), Kent State (285-299--584), New Mexico (304-283--587), No. 5 Oklahoma State (295-293--588), No. 12 BYU (293-296--589), Texas Tech (297-292--589), Oklahoma (291-298--589), No. 21 Auburn (304-286--590), Purdue (297-296--590) and New Mexico State (316-292--608).

Junior Jamie Bowen had an impressive round for the Tigers, finishing in a tie for sixth with a 75-66--141. Sitting at 4-under through 11 holes, an eagle on the par-5 third and a birdie on the fourth put him 7-under. The Dawsonville, Ga., native finished the day with five birdies and an eagle, and his only bogey came on the final hole. Bowen's 66 was the second-lowest round of the tournament and gave him his second straight top-10 finish after tying for seventh in the Schenkel E-Z-Go Invitational March 18.

Sophomore Glenn Northcutt also had an outstanding day, firing a final round 68 to finish in a tie for 33rd at 3-over 147. He reeled off five straight birdies from the 13th to the 17th and was 4-under after eight holes. Northcutt's 68 is his eighth sub-par round of the year.

 

 

Juniors Patton Kizzire (75-76--151) and Jay Moseley (75-76--151) tied for 55th while senior Andrew Medley finished 78th with an 86-77--163.

"I'm happy with the way we bounced back today with a better round," head coach Mike Griffin said. "We started out hot and moved up the leaderboard, but struggled a little bit at the end. I'm really proud of the way Jamie has been playing. This tournament was a good tune-up for us. It gives us a good indication of where our game is at this point."

Next up for the Tigers is the Administaff Augusta State Invitational in Augusta, Ga., Friday through Sunday.
