Oct. 27, 2009
BATON ROUGE - The Auburn men's golf team (282-864) carded a 2-under final round Tuesday to place ninth at the David Toms Intercollegiate at the Country Club of Louisiana in Baton Rouge, La.
Sophomore Kyle Kopsick (70-214) led the Tigers in a tie for 21st followed by senior Cole Moreland (69-215) tied for 24th, sophomore John Stembridge (71-218) tied for 38th, sophomore Will McCurdy (73-220) tied for 45th and reshirt freshman David Zickler (76-221) tied for 52nd.
The Tigers fired the third-lowest team round on the day to jump three spots into the top-10.
"I was pleased to see our guys keep their heads up in the final round today," said Auburn head coach Nick Clinard. "It wasn't exactly the finish we were looking for to end the fall. Hopefully it will give us some extra motivation to continue improving over the next few months before we head to Houston in February."
Moreland fired the lowest round on the day for the Tigers, a 2-under 69. The Austin, Texas native started the day on No. 13 with a shotgun start. Moreland was at 1-over with just three holes remaining before putting together three-consecutive birdies on holes 10 through 12.
Tournament host LSU (286-844) led wire-to-wire, claiming the team title followed by Kent State (284-845), North Florida (280-845), Mississippi (283-849), Rice (279-851), Southeastern Louisiana (287-851), Pepperdine (288-854), Mississippi State (292-859), Auburn (282-864), Louisiana Tech (293-866), UAB (297-872), South Alabama (294-877), Northwestern (307-878) and Louisiana-Lafayette (306-892).
Rice's Jade Scott (65-204) claimed the individual title followed by LSU's John Peterson (73-205) in second.
The David Toms concluded the Tigers' fall schedule. Auburn men's golf will return to action Feb. 15 at the Rice Intercollegiate in Houston.
