GW Golf Places Fourth at William & Mary Invitational
March 22, 2005
WILLIAMSBURG, VA -- GW's Brian Carroll (Crystal Lake, IL/Crystal Lake South) fired a 76-71--147 to tie for second in the William & Mary Invitational, Sunday-Monday at the par-72, 7,120-yard Golden Horseshoe Colf Club in Williamsburg, VA. The Colonials placed fourth in the 18-team field, equalling their finish in the same event last year.
Carroll's three-over-par 147 shaved a stroke off his score at last year's William & Mary Invitational held at Kingsmill's River Course.
Host William & Mary and Richmond both shot a combined 602 to tie for first but the Tribe won in a one-hole playoff by a score of 15 to 16 as five golfers from each school replayed the par 4, 429-yard first hole with the low four scores counting.
Maryland was third with a team total 605. Boston College's Alex Snickenberger won the tournament with an even-par 144, three strokes ahead of Carroll. Both players carded 71s in Monday's second round.
GW sophomore Jack Tyler (Novi, MI/Novi) was the second-lowest Colonial with a 74-78--152. GW next hosts the Seventh Annual GW Invitational, Saturday-Sunday, Apr. 2-3, at Swan Point Country Club in Issue, MD.
