Golf Places Second at Abbreviated Atlantic 10 Championship
Tim Johnson Ties For 7th After 27 Holes
May 9, 2005
MIDDLETOWN, RI -- GW freshman Tim Johnson (Marblehead, MA/Governor Dummer Academy) shot a 111 (75-36) to tie for seventh at the 2005 Atlantic 10 Conference men's golf championship Friday and Sunday, May 6-8, at the par-72, 6,974-yard Newport National Country Club near Newport, RI. Originally scheduled for 54 holes over three days, the tournament was reduced to just 27 holes by high winds and inclement weather which cancelled the final day of competition.
GW placed second in the 11-team field with a team total 451 (301-150) 24 strokes behind tournament champion Xavier (427). The Musketeers won the team title for the second time in three years and their fourth title overall. Xavier's Jason Kokrak and Neal Grusczynski tied for individual honors, each with a two-under-par 106. Kokrak's first-round 67 tied the course record held by PGA Tour professional Brett Quigley.
Due to forecasted rain on Saturday, about half the field finished 36 holes and everyone played at least 27 holes on Friday. No golf was played on Saturday and the teams that didn't finish the second round took the course Sunday morning, but after a few holes, they were called back to the clubhouse.
While five of the teams had completed the second round, all scores went back to the end of 27 holes. GW junior Andrew Gallo (Toronto, ONT) and sophomore Jack Tyler (Novi, MI) both tied for 11th with a 112.
