RECAP - Roadrunners Started On The Back 9
Matthew Cleary once again led the way for the Roadrunners posting a (+1, 73). He would start strong with a birdie on No. 10 and an eagle on No. 12. Cleary would birdie No. 16 for the third straight day, but three bogeys would be sprinkled in on his opening nine as he mad the turn to the front at 1-under-par. He would find trouble on No. 2 with a double-bogey and follow up with bogey on No. 4 before knocking home a birdie at No. 8 to finish out strong.

Sport Allmond finished off the Carpet Capital by firing a final round (+6, 78). Allmond would have an up-and-down start with a bogey at No. 11 and a double-bogey on No. 13. He would mix in birdies at Nos. 15 & 17 to make the turn at 2-over-par. The front 9 would not be kind to Allmond as he recorded two bogeys and a double-bogey.

Ben Rebne got off to another good start with a birdie on No. 11. Nos. 14-16 would not be kind to Rebne as he posted scores of double-bogey, bogey, and double-bogey to quickly stand at 4-over-par for the round. He would gain some momentum turning to the front 9 with a birdie at No. 18, but three bogeys and a triple-bogey would thwart his round.

Jack Clark would post a final round 82 in his first tournament as a Roadrunner. He would struggle to get it going on Sunday with a round that featured no birdies, six bogeys, and two double-bogeys.

Eli Hendricks shot a third consecutive 83 to close out his tournament. He would struggle to get anything going on the back 9, making the turn at 9-over-par. He would wrangle it back in on the front 9 and close with a birdie at No. 7 to finish out with some momentum heading into the next tournament.

#2 Dalton State will hit the links again on October 1 and 2 when they tee it up in the USCB Innisbrook Invitational at Innisbrook Golf Club in Palm Harbor, Fla.
