PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. --- The No. 5-ranked Georgia men's golf team claimed first place on Sunday in The Carmel Cup at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

The Bulldogs went wire-to-wire atop the leaderboard at the season-opening event. Georgia finished at 17-under 1,063, including a final-round 7-under 353, for a 5-stroke victory over Vanderbilt.


Junior Lee McCoy paced the Bulldogs on Sunday with a 5-under 67. Senior Mookie DeMoss followed at 2-under 70, while junior Sepp Straka signed for a 1-under 71, sophomore Greyson Sigg carded an even-par 72 and senior Nicholas Reach had a 1-over 73. Freshman Zach Healy had the Bulldogs' non-counting total of 8-over 81.


McCoy came in second at 9-under 207, two shots shy of Vanderbilt's Hunter Stewart. DeMoss placed eighth at 4-under 212, while Reach, Sigg and Straka came in 15th at even-par 216, and Healy wound up 46th at 10-over 226.


"It's a long season of course, but to win right out of the gate does a lot for us," Georgia coach Chris Haack said. "Anytime you get to hold the trophy on the last day, it's a shot in the arm for your confidence. Our guys played well all summer and they were steady in this tournament. We can build on this as we move forward."


The Bulldogs will return to action Sept. 19-21 in the Dick's Sporting Goods Collegiate Challenge Cup in Nashville, Tenn. Georgia is the tournament's defending champion.
