MILTON, Ga. ---The Georgia men's golf team finished 19th in the NCAA Championships on Thursday at the Capital City Club's Crabapple Course.

The Bulldogs fired a final-round 1-over 281 on the par-70, 7,319-yard layout to wind up at to 10-over 850 for the tournament. Georgia was seeking a top-8 finish on Thursday to advance to the match play portion of the tournament.

"We gave ourselves chances all week, but we never capitalized on them," junior Keith Mitchell said. "We played okay, but out here you've got to have one or two real good rounds to keep up with the competition. We put ourselves in good positions, but we never could cash in."

Freshman Lee McCoy paced the Bulldogs in the final round with a 1-under 69. Junior Joey Garber signed for an even-par 70, followed by Keith Mitchell and sophomore Nicholas Reach both at 1-over 71. Senior T.J. Mitchell had the Bulldogs' non-counting score of 2-over 72.

Garber came in at 1-over 211 in just his second tournament since shoulder surgery in December. McCoy finished at 3-over 213, followed by Keith Mitchell and Reach at 3-over 213, and T.J. Mitchell at 12-over 222.

"It's always tough trying to play from behind," Georgia coach Chris Haack said. "You put pressure on yourself trying to make something happen. ... Every time we tee it up, we should learn something. Hopefully we learned something that will make them tougher and better for the next time around."

“It’s hard to get behind in a tournament like this,” Garber said. “If you’ve got to make up a lot of strokes, these teams are all so good that they’re not going to give them all back to you. Maybe one or two but not all. You can’t count on any more than that. We played hard. We didn’t give up. So there’s some things to look forward to.”

Cal's Max Homa earned NCAA medalist honors with a total of 9-under 201.
