NOTES

EATONTON, Ga.---The Chattanooga Mocs men’s golf team wound up eighth at the Linger Longer Invitational. Its total of 878 was one ahead of Kennesaw State and eight clear of Yale. The Mocs shot 306 over the final 18 on a tough day to score.

“The setup was easy yesterday” Head Coach Mark Guhne stated. “Today was much tougher…they really brought out the teeth in the golf course. It was hard on everyone, but we just didn't respond like I know we can.

“Liam is just a fighter,” Guhne added. “You had to have that mentality out there when it gets hard. Even if he's not playing well, he can make a score for us. He had his struggles over the 54 holes, but he finds a way to help us every day and put a score together.”

Johnston, a native of Dumfries, Scotland, tied for 13th at one-under par 215. He cobbled together a level-par 72 over his final 18 holes. He balanced four birdies and four bogeys and ended up one shy of his career high of 13 with 12 birdies for the event.

Ewan Scott (St. Andrews, Scotland) ended up tied for 23rd at 218 after today’s 76. Wes Gosselin (Knoxville, Tenn.) and Chris Robb (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) rounded out the counting scores with 79’s.

No. 5 Georgia (837) broke a tie at the top of the leaderboard to win by 10 over Alabama (847). No. 15 Oklahoma (867) was a distant third. The Bulldogs Michael Comrie made it a clean sweep of titles topping the Crimson Tide’s Robbie Shelton on the first playoff hole. The duo tied at minus nine.

The final tune-up prior to championship play comes in two weeks for the Mocs. They travel to West Point, Miss., for the Old Waverly Collegiate hosted April 7-8 by Mississippi State.
