Georgia Northwestern Ties For 11th In Montgomery In Final Fall Event

Tuesday, November 14, 2017
The Georgia Northwestern Bobcats shot five strokes higher than their 323 round on Monday and finished tied for 11th place overall in the 14-team Trojan Invitational, hosted by Central Alabama Community College. 
David Manis and Lane Strickland shared low round of the day honors for the Bobcats on the Wynlakes Golf Club course, carding a 5-over par 77 on the 6,976-yard layout.
Manis’ 77 was two shots lower than his 79 on Monday, while Strickland improved by 14 shots over his opening round of 91. 
However, the rest of the Bobcats were not as fortunate. Branton Bailey went from a 74 on Monday to an 82 on Tuesday, while Cole Roberts signed for a 92 in the final round after a 79 to begin the tournament. Adrian Clark shot a 93 on Monday, but withdrew and did not complete his second round. 
The result was a team score of 328 and a two-day total of 651 (40-over par).
Manis and Bailey both finished 12-over to tie for 31st in the individual standings. Strickland tied for 56th and Roberts tied for 60th. 
Central Alabama, who shot a ho-hum 306 in the first round, caught fire on Tuesday. They turned in three scores of 3-under par (69) and one 1-over par (71) to record a blistering 10-under 278 as a team. 
It was enough to give them the tournament championship at 8-over par (584), five strokes ahead of first round leader Calhoun (Ala.) C.C. (589) and 13 strokes ahead of Wallace State (Ala.) C.C. (597) in the 36-hole event. 
Calhoun’s Sam Murphy won the individual title with a 5-under par total of 139 (68-71), while Jake Maples and Owen Burt of Central Alabama, along with Brandon Lacasse of Wallace State, tied for third at 1-under par (143).
The tournament marked the final fall event for the Bobcats, who will resume play in the spring of 2018.
