Auburn Men's Golf Fires Second Straight 271, Finishes Seventh In Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate

Oct. 10, 2006

BIRMINGHAM - The Auburn men's golf team shot the low round of the day for the second straight round and matched its school record for the lowest 18-hole score by firing a 13-under 271 to finish seventh with a 297-271-271--839 in the final round of the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate at the par-71, 6,958-yard Old Overton Club in Birmingham Tuesday.

Backed by sub-par rounds from each golfer, the Tigers equaled Monday's record-setting second round and moved up three spots from tenth.

Glenn Northcutt carded his second sub-par round of the tournament, a 1-under 70 to finish tied for 12th at 6-under 207. Jay Moseley had his best round of the tournament, shooting a 4-under 67 to finish in 26th at 2-under 211. Patton Kizzire also fired a 67 and finished tied for 32nd at even-par 213. Brent Cooper, playing in his first collegiate tournament, finished tied for 35th at 78-66-70--214 followed by Andrew Medley in a tie for 38th at 77-71-67--215.

"We really played well in the last two rounds," Auburn head coach Mike Griffin said. "Again, we needed to start a little better. With a short turnaround, hopefully we can carry this with us as we go into the Bank of Tennessee this weekend."

Host and third-ranked Alabama claimed the title with a 270-272-277--819, seven shots ahead of Texas Tech's 274-272-280--826. Texas (280-276-272--828) finished third followed by No. 24 BYU (284-274-272--830), No. 7 Georgia State (277-280-276--833), No. 13 East Tennessee State (290-272-272--834), Auburn (297-271-271--839), UAB (272-279-290--841), LSU (283-279-281--843), Arizona (280-280-287--847), Tulsa (284-285-281--850) and No. 9 Purdue (287-283-284--854).

 

 

Alabama's Joseph Sykora (67-67-65--199) claimed the individual title, two strokes ahead of Texas Tech's Will Griffin (68-62-71--201) and Georgia State's Mark Haastrup (63-71-67--201).

The Tigers return to the course this weekend in Johnson City, Tenn., for the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate Saturday and Sunday.
