Nicholas Reach

RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico --- The ninth-ranked Georgia men's golf team finished fourth on Tuesday in the Puerto Rico Classic.

On Tuesday on the Rio Mar Country's Club River Course, the Bulldogs fired a 6-under-par 282 and wound up at 12-under 852 for the tournament. Team honors went to Alabama at 33-under 831.

Senior T.J. Mitchell and junior Michael Cromie paced the Bulldogs in the final round with 3-under 69s. Junior Keith Mitchell added a 1-under 71 and sophomore Nicholas Reach signed for a 1-over 73. Sophomore Sam Straka had the Bulldogs' non-counting score of 4-over 76.

Reach and Cromie finished tied for 16th at 2-under 214. North Carolina State's Albin Choi secured medalist honors at 12-under 204. T.J. Mitchell wound up at even-par 216, followed by Keith Mitchell at 1-over 217 and Straka at 10-over 226.

"I'm pleased with the way we played this week," Georgia coach Chris Haack said. "This was our first spring tournament, so we had some rust to knock off. We dug ourselves something of a hole the first day, but we were solid the next two. This team has a lot of potential, and we can continue to improve as we go through the spring."

The Bulldogs will return to action March 8-10 in the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters in Las Vegas.
