Georgia Southern’s men’s golf team finished tied for fourth place out of 14 teams at the Gary Koch Invitational this week in Gastonia, North Carolina. Auburn won the tournament by eight strokes with a final score of 18-under-par as a team, and Georgia Southern tied with Louisiana-Monroe for fourth place at 1-under-par.

Two Eagles placed in the top 10 individuals over the three-round event. Junior Jake Storey tied for third place with three rounds under par putting him at 6-under-par for the tournament. That score included a 4-under-par 68 in the final round. Georgia Southern sophomore Steven Fisk tied for ninth place in the field of 81 golfers, with a final tally of 2-under-par, including a 3-under-par 69 in his first round.

Currently, Storey has the lowest average score per round in the Sun Belt Conference, and Fisk is third in that category. Georgia Southern as a team also has the lowest average score in the Sun Belt.

The Eagles have finished in the top four in each of their last three tournaments. The Gary Koch Invitational was the last competition for the Eagles before the Sun Belt Conference Championship, which will be underway Sunday, April 23 at Raven Golf Club in Destin, Florida.
