RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico --- The No. 7 Georgia men's golf team shot a 7-under 281 on Monday in the Puerto Rico Classic and slipped into third place.
The Bulldogs have a two-round total of 17-under 559, which is 14 strokes behind Alabama's 31-under 545.
Senior Joey Garber paced the Bulldogs on Monday with a 4-under 68, while freshman Greyson Sigg signed for a 3-under 69, and senior Keith Mitchell and sophomore Lee McCoy posted even-par 72s. Senior Michael Cromie had Georgia's non-counting total of 1-over 73.
Garber is third individually at 9-under 135, four shots behind Alabama's Robby Shelton (13-under 131). Sigg stands ninth at 5-under 139 and McCoy is 20th 2-under 142. Mitchell is at 1-under 143, followed by Cromie at 3-over 147.
"We really had a fight on our hands today with the front nine," Georgia coach Chris Haack said. "We shot 8-over for the five guys, including 5-over for the four who wound up counting for us. We'll try to clean that up for Tuesday and give ourselves a strong finish. I've seen a lot of positives this week, and I don't have any doubts that we are heading in the right direction."
The Puerto Rico Classic will conclude with an 8 a.m. shotgun start on Tuesday. Live results can be found here.
