Junior Steven Fisk led the Georgia Southern men’s golf team with a third-place individual finish, shooting a school-and-course record 12-under-par 60 in round two at the Warrior Makai Princeville Invitational this week in Hawai’i.

Fisk was the 13th golfer to ever shoot 60 in a college event, according to Golfweek. No player has ever shot 59 at a college tournament.

The Eagles as a team finished in 15th out of a loaded 20-team field. Louisville won the three-round event by nine strokes.

While Fisk excelled once again, other GS golfers had subpar performances. Seniors Jake Storey and Archer Price, usually reliable sidekicks for Fisk, shot 8-over-par and 11-over-par on the tournament, respectively.

GS sophomore Luukas Alakulppi was the second-best finisher for the Eagles, tying for 46th place after moving 20 spots up the leaderboard with a 3-under-par 69 on the final day.

The Hawai’i event was the final official competition of the fall for the Eagles.

The Gator Invitational in Gainesville, Florida will open the spring season for the Eagles on February 17, 2018.
