The Georgia Southern men’s golf team began its fall season this week at the Shoal Creek Intercollegiate in Birmingham, Alabama, finishing in fifth place of 12 teams thanks in large part to junior Steven Fisk’s sixth place overall finish and senior Archer Price tying for 11th.

Fisk and Price both shot 1-under-par 71, and the Eagles scored the third-lowest score of the day on Tuesday.

After shooting 1-under-par on the front nine, Fisk parred the back nine to finish one under par for the day.

Sophomore Brett Barron was the only other Eagle in the top 30 golfers, tying for 29th after making up for a subpar 6-under par 78 in the first round by notching a 71 and a 72 in the final two rounds.

It was Wake Forest who shot a brilliant 15-under-par on the day and won the event, beating Liberty by 13 strokes. North Florida and Ole Miss earned third and fourth, respectively.

GS head coach Carter Collins was pleased with the results and had “nothing but positives to take away from this week and can’t wait to compete again,” according to gseagles.com

The Eagles will be back on the links in Notre Dame October 8-9 for the Fighting Irish Intercollegiate.
