PURCHASE, New York --- Led by medalist Lee McCoy, the No. 5-ranked Georgia men's golf team dominated the Met Intercollegiate on Saturday for its third victory of the season.

The Bulldogs fired a 16-over 580 on the Century Country Club and Old Oaks Country Club courses on Saturday. Georgia shot a 3-over 287 at Century and a 13-over 293 at Old Oaks to top host Yale by 33 strokes.

The Bulldogs earlier won the Dick's Sporting Goods Collegiate Challenge Cup in September and the Linger Longer Invitational in their last outing in March.

McCoy, a sophomore from Clarkesville, Ga., earned medalist honors for the first time in his career. He was the only golfer under par at 6-under 135, including a 7-under 64 at Century. McCoy won by 11 shots over Bulldogs teammate Nicholas Reach (who was playing as an individual and did not count toward the team score) and Yale's Sam Bernstein at 5-over 146.

After McCoy and Reach, the Bulldogs had the remaining four players in the top 12. Joey Garber and Michael Cromie placed fourth at 6-over 147, Greyson Sigg came in sixth at 10-over 151 and Keith Mitchell was 12th at 14-over 155.

McCoy, Garber and Cromie all have individual victories this season.

The Bulldogs will return to action April 19 in the Capital City Club College Match Play Championship in Milton. Georgia then will play in the SEC Championship April 25-27 on St. Simons Island.

"We've definitely picked up some momentum this spring, and it should help us in the championship part of the schedule," Georgia coach Chris Haack said. "The guys were really dialed in today and did a good job of navigating the two courses. Lee was really, really solid. His 64 was something to see. He's a talented young man, and I'm really happy that he was able to get his first win."
