Bobcat Golf Takes Third at Aflac/Cougar Invitational

COLUMBUS, Ga. – Sophomore David Sullivan's (Woodstock, Ga.) final round 67 helped charge the Georgia College golf team to a third-place finish at the Aflac/Cougar Invitational, hosted by Columbus State University.

The Bobcats shot their best round of the three today, a 284; pairing with yesterday's 294 and 285 for 11-over par. The tournament took place at the par-71, 6,515-yard Country Club of Columbus.

Sullivan's 67 marks a new low round for the Bobcats this season. He paired that with yesterday's 78 and 70 finish two-over in 10th place in the 90-member field. The last time a Georgia College player shot a round lower than 67 was Patrick Garrett, a 66 at the Armstrong Pirate Invitational Feb. 27, 2012.

Leading the team in eighth, a single stroke ahead of Sullivan was Victor Monte (Chantilly, Va.). The senior posted rounds of 69 and 72 yesterday with today's 73 to finish one-over par.

Junior Ryan Trocchio (Norcross, Ga.) nabbed a top-20 finish at 20th, carding a 71 to go with yesterday's 76 and 71 for five-over par.

Senior Bryan Fox (Roswell, Ga.) finished in 33rd place, posting rounds of 72, 76 and 73 for eight-over, while freshman Conner Albright (Macon, Ga.) finished 11-over in 47th place at 72-74-75.

The host Columbus State team won the tournament as the only sub-par squad at two-under. The Cougars beat the University of West Florida by eight strokes. CSU's Robert Mize was individual medalist as well, posting a six-under effort for the three rounds. He beat Tim Crouch of Florida Southern College by a single stroke.
