Mocs Finished 14th At Carpet Capital Collegiate

Sunday, September 8, 2013

The Chattanooga Mocs men’s golf team finished the Carpet Capital Collegiate with a final round 297 (+9). It gave UTC a three-day total of 899 with a squad featuring four freshmen and a senior.

“Obviously we had greater expectations,” Head Coach Mark Guhne said. “We can make excuses, but I know the kind of team we have and for four freshmen to qualify, it shows our depth and what we capable of as a group.

“Overall I am really pleased with our final 36 holes,” Guhne continued. “I liked the way the young guys bounced back from a tough start. We’ll tee it up again next week and work to keep getting better.”

Davis Bunn (Knoxville, Tenn.) led the Mocs with a three-round total of 220. He turned in cards of 71, 74 and 75 for his total. Wes Gosselin (Knoxville) and Stuart Thomas (Knoxville) were next up after Bunn at 227 with identical scores, just not in the same order. They both opened with 79s but shot 72 and 76 over the final 36 holes but on different days,

Ewan Scott (St. Andrews, Scotland) debuted with a 228 total. He was consistent with scores of 77, 75 and 76. Brooks Thomas (Chattanooga) rounded out the Mocs lineup at 234. He rebounded from an opening round 85 with cards of 75 and 74.

Georgia Tech swept team and individual wins. The Yellow Jackets shot 14-under par 850 for the win beating Georgia by six strokes (856). LSU was a distant third with an even-par 864.

Ollie Schniederjans was the wire-to-wire co-winner at -9 (207). UNC’s Bailey Patrick battled to the end finishing tying him on the final two holes. Schniederjans finished double-bogey/bogey after back-to-back birdies on 15 and 16. Patrick played the final four at one-under for the tie.

UTC returns to the tee a week from today at the Golfweek Conference Challenge. Chattanooga finished as runners-up in 2011 with Stephan Jaeger (2009-12) claiming his second win at Spirit Hollow Golf Clun in Burlington, Iowa. Follow @GoMocsMGLF on Twitter for updates.
