Men’s Golf Caps Fall Season with Grandover Collegiate Title
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Highlighted by three consecutive rounds under par, including a tournament-low 281 in the final round, Davidson captured the 2021 Grandover Collegiate title Sunday with a 54-hole total of 16-under par.
“I’m very proud of the guys,” commented three-time A-10 Coach of the Year Tim Straub. “They played very well on a challenging course. It’s a great way to finish off the fall schedule and head into the offseason. Overall, the entire team showed great improvement this fall, and we are very excited for the spring.”
The Wildcats, who were tied for the lead with Toledo and Wofford after 36 holes, grabbed control late in the final round as they played their 12-16 holes of the day in 9-under as a team en route to a seven-stroke victory.
Toldeo (-9) finished runner-up ahead of host UNCG (-3), which joined Davidson as the only other squad to sign for sub-par rounds this afternoon.
Coming off a 66 in Saturday’s second round, Alex Heffner (-12) continued his impressive play for the Wildcats with the day’s lowest score, a bogey-free 5-under 67, to come home second.
The Spartans’ Nick Lyerly (-14) led wire-to-wire to claim individual medalist by two over Heffner.
Senior Clayton Tribus (E | T-12) recorded his second straight Top-15 showing, while Will Davis (+1 | T-15) and Viraj Garewal (+2 | T-20) also finished in the Top-20 for Davidson.
Cole Walter (+6 | T-37) was also in the Wildcats’ lineup this weekend, while Adam Lauer competed as an individual.
Davidson will open its 2022 spring campaign Feb. 14-15 at the Mobile Bay Intercollegiate hosted by the University of South Alabama.
