Tuesday, March 6, 2018
The Chattanooga Mocs turned in even-par 288 in the final round Tiger Invitational to move up to 10th in the 17-team field. The Mocs shot 879 over the two-day, 54-hole event.
Etienne Brault led the quintet with a 2-under par 70 at the Grand National Lake Course. Lake Johnson and Will Porter added 72s with a 74 from Luke Long for today’s team total. A.J. Lintunen had the drop score of 77.
The climb to 10th was steady after sitting in 14th after a slow start. One-over 577 over the final 36 holes was seventh-best in the strong field.
Johnson tied for 11th at 3 under.
Long (221), Porter (222) and Brault (223) finished within two strokes of each other. That put the Mocs one shot clear of UNCG and UNCW with Southern Miss another shot back in 13th. Minnesota was two in front of UTC in ninth.
No. 9 Auburn easily won shooting 839. That was 25 better than runner-up Georgia State. Maryland’s David Kocher was the medalist at 11-under 205.
