Men’s golf suffers uncharacteristic top 15 finish at The Hootie

In their final round from The Hootie at Bulls Bay on Tuesday, the Georgia Southern men’s golf team was led by senior Jake Storey, who fired a team best round of the day, a 68, and helped land the Eagles into 14th place on the leaderboard.

“The team fought their tails off this week,” Head coach Carter Collins told GSEagles. “They worked hard to get comfortable on a new, tough course and played with great effort throughout the event.”

Junior standout Steven Fisk, was the Eagles’ top individual finisher, shooting 3 under par over the course of the tournament, good enough to tie for 14th in the event.

After their slightly uncharacteristic finish in Awendaw, South Carolina on Tuesday, the Eagles now have a little bit of a rest period before they head out to their next event, the Gary Koch Invitational.

The tournament is the last regular season event on GS’ regular season schedule, so it seems necessary that the Eagles begin to build up some of their momentum before they head into the crucial Sun Belt Championships that will tee-off on April 22.

“I expect our student-athletes to learn and improve from difficult situations,” Collins said. “I hold myself to the same standard so I’ll work harder to have the team best prepared for our next event in Gastonia, N.C.”

The Gary Koch Invitational is a 2 day event from Gaston Country Club, in Gastonia, North Carolina. Action from the tournament is set to begin on Monday, April 9.
