Golf Finishes Seventh in Warrior Wave Invitational
KAUAI, Hawaii – Will Evans tied for 13th with a three-round, even-par total of 216, and the Georgia Southern golf team capped its fall season by finishing seventh at the Warrior Wave Invitational at the Makai Golf Club Wednesday.
Hayden Anderson tied for 18th at 1-over par, while Scott Wolfes and Charlie Martin tied for 35th at 6-over.
Baylor won the tournament at 18-under, and NC State (-11) took second. UC Irvine (-6) was third, followed by East Tennessee State (-1), Pepperdine (+3) and Indiana (+5). The Eagles finished with an 870 (+6).
Evans got off to a rough start today with a bogey on his first hole and a double bogey on his second, but the junior rallied by posting birdies on holes 10 and 14 and carding an eagle on 18 en route to a 73. Wolfes had the Eagles' best round of the day with a 71 and birdied four of his last nine holes.
Martin played his first 13 holes at 1-under, but bogeyed four of the last five down the stretch to card a 75. Anderson was 2-over after 16 holes but got a double bogey on his last hole of the day for a 76, and Matt Mierzejewski finished with a 78.
"Those final few holes in both the second and third rounds cost us in the final standings," said Georgia Southern coach Larry Mays. "We made too many big mistakes to compete for a win this week. Overall, we had a good fall and can look forward to good things in the spring. A positive is that all five players had at least one under-par round this week, and we had a great trip to Hawaii."
The Eagles open the spring season at the Gator Invitational Feb. 9.
