UA Men's Golf Wins Tourney By 22 Shots
The 47-under-par is a new Alabama school record in relation to par, breaking the old mark of 42-under par (810) at the 2007 Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate. The Crimson Tide still shot the lowest round in the field on Sunday with an 8-under-par 280 to complete the wire-to-wire victory. The 817 total also broke the tournament record by eight strokes.
"I'm really proud of the guys this weekend, 47-under par – that is some pretty good golf," Alabama head coach Jay Seawell. "We had a rough tournament in Las Vegas and from the time we got out of the van this week at the Schenkel, you could just see a different look in their eye. We learned some valuable lessons, got back to competing and did a great job."
Virginia finished second at 25-under-par 839 while Auburn and Florida tied for third at 17-under 847 with UAB rounding out the top five at 9-under 855. Virginia's Ben Kohles captured medalist honors with an 18-under-par total of 198 with Auburn's Blayne Barber second at 15-under 201.
Alabama would then lock down the next four spots on the leader board with Justin Thomas and Cory Whitsett tying for third at 12-under 204. Hunter Hamrick and Bobby Wyatt were then tied for fifth at 10-under 206. Scott Strohmeyer, who fired the Tide's lowest round on Sunday with a 3-under 69, tied for 21st at 1-under 215.
Thomas and Hamrick shot 2-under-par rounds of 70 on Sunday while Wyatt carded a 1-under 71 and Whitsett and even-par 72. Hamrick did not make a bogey during the 54-hole Schenkel Invitational.
Alabama returns to action on March 24-25 at the Linger Longer Invitational at the Reynolds Landing Golf Club in Greensboro, Ga.
