ALPHARETTA, Ga. --- The No. 1-ranked Georgia men's golf team finished first at the United States Collegiate Championship on Wednesday at the Golf Club of Georgia, giving the Bulldogs their third title in their last four events.

Georgia had a final-round 5-over 293 to wind up at 20-over 884. The Bulldogs finished eight shots ahead of UCLA (892).

Freshman Hudson Swafford and senior Chris Kirk each carded even-par 72s in the final round on Wednesday. Senior Brendon Todd added a 2-over 74, while sophomore Adam Mitchell signed for a 3-over 75 and sophomore Brian Harman had a 5-over 77.

Swafford finished second in the individual race at 2-over 218, three shots behind Webb Simpson of Wake Forest. Kirk came in third at 3-over 219, Todd placed 12th at 7-over 223, Mitchell finished 36th at 12-over 228 and Harman came in 43rd at 13-over 229.

This spring, the Bulldogs have won the Puerto Rico Classic, the Schenkel E-Z-GO Invitational and the U.S. Collegiate, and they placed second at the Southern Highlands Championship.

"Our guys are playing well right now, and they certainly showed that this week," Georgia coach Chris Haack said. "We're playing with a lot of confidence. And to win against a great field like this one only helps keep that confidence high. We're heading into the most important stretch of our season, so I couldn't be happier with where we are."

The Bulldogs will return to action April 20-22 in the Southeastern Conference Championship at Sea Island. Georgia is the defending SEC champion.
