Dalton State Golf Finishes 9th In Daytona

Sunday, April 06, 2014 - by Bob Beavers

Daytona Beach, Fl. – While you would like to win every outing, Dalton State golf coach Ben Rickett was pleased with the progress of our first ever men’s team as they wrapped-up the Spring 2014 season Sunday.

Competing against many of the best small college golfers in the US and Canada, the Roadrunners (290, 302 = 592) finished ninth in the “Bash At The Beach” at the 6,858-yard, par 72, LPGA course here. 

The College of Coastal Georgia (283, 279 = 562) captured the event by one stroke over Johnson & Wales of Florida (286, 277 = 563).

“We weren’t our best today, but it was great getting to play some of the best in the country,” Rickett said. 

“We’ve learned a lot about this team and each other this year,” added Rickett. “I couldn’t be more proud of the work all of the guys have put in. We still have lots we need to work on in the off season, but I am extremely excited about the 2014-15 season.”

Roadrunner linksters Tobi Ebner and Tyler Mitchell each combined Saturday’s opening round 70s with a 75 each on Sunday. Their two-day 145’s each put them in a seven-way tie for 15th

Levi Nix (74, 75= 149), Chase Jones (76, 77 = 153) and Anthony D’Angelo (76, 82 = 158) round out the DS scoring.

Coastal Georgia’s Chase Miller and Allan Bradford finished tied for the individual lead. They each shot a 70 on Saturday and 69 on Sunday to share a 139. Dalton High graduate Miller won a play-off for medalist.
