JONESBOROUGH, TENN. - The No. 10 Auburn men's golf team (286-861) shot a 2-under third round to finish tied for eighth place at the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate at the par-72, 7,147-yard Ridges Golf Club.
Senior Jay Moseley (73-213) tied for 13th, seven shots off the individual lead. Senior Patton Kizzire (70-217) and junior Glenn Northcutt (75-217) tied for 29th. Senior Gordon Strother (71-218) and junior Keith White (72-218) finished tied for 36th.
"We came in with higher plans than finishing in the middle of the field," said head coach Mike Griffin. "We didn't play bad but we didn't play good either. I am very pleased with Keith White who had never played at The Ridges. This course can cause a lot of problems for a rookie and is very intimidating your first time around."
White carded a team high 13 birdies at The Bank of Tennessee, his first appearance of the 2007-08 season.
North Carolina (283-852) won a scorecard tiebreaker with Virginia Tech (285-852) after regulation to claim the championship. Host East Tennessee State (289-854) finished third, followed by Kent State (288-856), Tennessee (290-858), Coastal Carolina (287-858), No. 12 Wake Forest (295-859), No. 10 Auburn (286-861), Maryland (276-861), North Carolina State (286-865), Kentucky (291-869), No. 2 South Carolina (296-871), No. 23 UAB (296-875), Virginia (293-878) and Vanderbilt (287-882).
Tennessee's Chris Paisley (72-206) held onto the individual lead, two shots ahead of Maryland's Chris Gold (65-208) and Kent State's John Hahn (69-208).
The Bank of Tennessee concluded the fall portion of Auburn's 2007-08 season. The Tigers will return to action Feb. 20-22 at the John Burns Intercollegiate in Wahiawa, Hawaii.
