Mocs Fire Best 18 of Season in Brickyard Final Round

MACON, Ga. --- The Chattanooga Mocs men’s golf team shot its best round of the season to close out the Brickyard Collegiate. Today’s three-under par 287 gave it a 10th-place finish and a 54-hole total of 881.

It provided Head Coach Mark Guhne with something else…optimism.

“We shot three-over for the last two rounds, so that’s a great step forward,” Guhne said. “It’s encouraging. We got off to a bad start, but we really got it together over the last 36 holes. We just need some consistency.”

Guhne got just what he was looking for from Liam Johnston. Johnston, a junior from Dumfries, Scotland, ended up tied for sixth shooting six under for the weekend. He tallied rounds of 70, 71 and 69 for a career-best finish and total (210).

“Liam has worked so hard,” Guhne added. He’s really busted his rear end, but he’s had bad luck in qualifying. He got a chance to get into competition and took full advantage of it. I’m really proud of him. You can bet you’ll see him in the lineup next week. It’s always great to see that kind of work pay off.”

Liam’s minus three wasn’t the only under par round on the Mocs ledger. Freshmen Wes Gosselin (Knoxville) and Ewan Scott (St. Andrews, Scotland) shot 69 and 70, respectively, while senior Chris Robb (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) turned in a level-par 72. Stuart Thomas (Knoxville) shot 74, while Davis Bunn (Knoxville) had the drop score with a 77.

Johnston wasn’t the only Moc to catch his coach’s eye.

“Ewan had a really solid tournament,” Guhne continued. “A shot here or there, and it’s a great tournament. He and Wes are really starting to round into form. Chris gave us solid play. It was also good to see under par rounds from all the freshmen.”

Scott tied for 28th as the lead team scorer. His two-over par 218 is his best result of 2013-14.

Gosselin turned in a perfect card. He posted three birdies and 15 pars for a bogey-free 69. His 222 (+6) is also a season best.

Host Mercer claimed an impressive with shooting 837 (-27). The Bears won by two over Georgia Tech (839). Virginia Tech (849) and Georgia (853) finished third and fourth. Three individuals – Emmanual Kountakis (Mercer), Seth Reeves (Ga. Tech) and Hans Reimers (Mercer) shared medalist honors at nine-under par (207).

Chattanooga returns to Georgia in just over a week for the AutoTrader.com Collegiate. This year’s event is October 14-15 at Berkeley Hills Country Club outside Atlanta. Live scoring can be accessed on GoMocs.com and fans can follow @GoMocsMGLF on Twitter for updates.
