May 2, 2004
MIDDLETOWN, RI - The George Washington University golf team shot a three-round 929 (309-321-299) to place eighth in the 11-team Atlantic 10 Championship Friday-Sunday at the par-72, 7,457-yard Newport National Golf Club in Middletown, RI. GW sophomore Brian Carroll (Crystal Lake, IL/Crystal Lake South) was the low Colonial with a 225 (75-78-72), good for 11th place out of 55 individuals.
Rhode Island senior David Spitz (Norwell, MA) sank a four-foot putt on 18 that gave the University of Rhode Island the 2004 Atlantic 10 Championship. Spitz edged Xavier's Andy Pope by one-stroke for the round to give the Rams the team championship, but the two players went to a playoff to decide the individual championship, and Pope earned that honor after finishing as the runner-up in 2003.
