CARMEL, Ind. --- The No. 6-ranked Georgia men's golf team finished third in the Crooked Stick Intercollegiate on Tuesday.
Playing at Crooked Stick Golf Club, the Bulldogs had a final-round 8-over 296 to wind up at 17-over 881. Arkansas took team honors at 11-over 875.
Senior Michael Cromie paced the Bulldogs on Tuesday as he shot an even-par 72. Junior Sam Straka added a 1-over 73, followed by senior Keith Mitchell at 3-over 75 and sophomore Lee McCoy at 4-over 76. Junior Nicholas Reach had the Bulldogs' non-counting score of 5-over 77.
Reach finished fifth individually at 4-over 220, eight shots behind Arkansas' Sebastian Cappelan (212). Cromie and Straka placed eighth at 5-over 221, while Mitchell was 12th at 6-over 222 and McCoy came in 17th at 8-over 224.
Playing as an individual, freshman Greyson Sigg closed with a 6-over 78 to wind up at 13-over 229.
"We want to win every time we play, so we are disappointed that we didn't close as strong as we would have liked," Georgia coach Chris Haack said. "Our guys know that you have to come ready to play for all 54 holes, and this will certainly reinforce that. All five guys in the lineup finished in the top 20, so that's definitely a positive. We'll build on the good things and get ready for the next one."
The Bulldogs will close the fall portion of their schedule Oct. 27-29 in the Kiawah Invitational.
