Fox Takes Second, #16 Bobcats Third at Jay Jennison Memorial
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – Senior Bryan Fox (Roswell, Ga.) saved his best round for last, buzzing through for a 69 Tuesday at the Jay Jennison Memorial, finishing just one stroke from the lead and powering the No. 16 Georgia College squad to a third-place finish in the 17-team tournament.
Fox coupled today's effort with a 74 and 70 yesterday for three-under par, one from Queens University's (N.C.) Alex Weare and ahead of the rest of the 90-golfer field.
Junior Ryan Trocchio (Norcross, Ga.) finished fifteenth at three-over par, posting rounds of 71, 74 and 74. Classmate Victor Monte (Chantilly, Va.) finished in the top-30 at 29th, carding a 72, 75, 76.
Sophomore David Sullivan (Woodstock, Ga.) shared the team lead after the first two rounds and slipped some today, finishing 31st at eight over (70-74-80). Pontus Andersson (Helsingborg, Sweden) was 42nd at 11-over par.
The Bobcats were 13 over, posting scores of 285, 293 and 299. Host Flagler College was first at one-over, while Queens finished second at 12-over par. The third-place finish was the best for Georgia College since taking second at the Raines Development Group Intercollegiate Sept. 11, 2012.
The Bobcats are back in action Monday, Sept. 30 at the Aflac/Cougar Invitational in Columbus, Ga.
