Golf Finishes Fifth at Mason Rudolph Championship
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Charlie Martin and Scott Wolfes each placed in the top-10, and the Eagles carded a 2-under par round of 282 as a team to charge up the leaderboard and finish fifth at the Mason Rudolph Championship Sunday.
"We saved our best round of the week for the final round," said Georgia Southern coach Larry Mays. "We talked last night about putting four solid scores on the board, and the guys did a great job of taking what the course gave us."
Martin and Wolfes both recorded a 2-under 69, while Anderson shot a 1-under 70.
Martin was steady throughout the round, posting three birdies and one bogey on the day, and the sophomore finished fifth individually, his best career finish, at 4-under par for the tournament.
Wolfes had a chance at a huge day after playing the first 16 holes at 4-under par. After birdies on 14 and 15 and a par on 16, the sophomore bogeyed 17 and 18 for his 69. He tied for eighth at 1-under for the tournament.
"Charlie finished off a great tournament with a top-five finish, and Scott backed up his win last week with a top-10," said Mays.
Anderson built on yesterday's round of 72 by tearing up the back nine today. After finishing the front nine at 2-over, the junior birdied holes 11, 14 and 18 for a 70.
Henry Mabbett carded a 2-over 73 for the best round of his young career as an Eagle. The redshirt freshman came out of the gates well, got a birdie on the first hole and finished the front nine at 1-over. He played the first eight holes of the back nine at 1-over but slipped on 18 and carded a bogey.
Caleb Morris rounded out the group with a 77, and Christian Humber, playing as an individual, had a tough Sunday after working his way into a tie for 20th yesterday. The junior posted an 81.
The Eagles have a couple weeks off before returning to action at the AutoTrader Collegiate Classic in Duluth, Ga., Oct. 15.
"A top-5 finish this week really gives us some momentum heading into our next event," said Mays.
