GREENSBORO, Ga. --- The 13th-ranked Georgia men’s golf team is in fourth place after one round of the Linger Longer Invitational at Great Waters Golf Course.

On Sunday, the Bulldogs fired a 3-over 291. Georgia is seven shots behind co-leaders Alabama and Chattanooga (284).

The Bulldogs also got 3-over 75s from sophomore T.J. Mitchell and freshman Michael Cromie and a 5-over 77 from senior Russell Henley.

“We’ve had some slow starts in recent tournaments, so it was nice to see us get off to a better start in this one,” Georgia coach Chris Haack said. “We know we can play better, and the good news is we’re still in the hunt. I am excited about seeing what we can do over the next couple of days.”

Playing as individuals, sophomore Scott McAlpine shot a 2-over 74, freshman Keith Mitchell signed for a 4-over 76 and senior Rob Bennett carded a 5-over 77.
