May 19, 2012
GREENSBORO, N.C. - The George Washington golf team shot its best round of the NCAA Greensboro Regional on Saturday with an 18-over par 306 to tie for 13th place with Mount St. Mary's with a three-round total of 64-over 928.
The Colonials were competing in their first NCAA Tournament since the 2006 season and first-ever under fourth-year head coach Terry Shaffer ('79) at the par-72, 7,271-yard Grandover Resort East Course, hosted by UNC-Greensboro and the Greensboro Sports Commission.
Liberty - which sat in first through Rounds 1 and 2 - claimed the Greensboro Regional crown with a three-day score of 4-over 868.
GW stood in 14th place after Round 1 and bested Mount St. Mary's in Round 2 to move to 13th, but the Mount fired its best score of the weekend with a 12-over 300 to keep pace with the Colonials and finish with an identical 64-over 928.
Senior Andres Pumariega closed out his career as the Buff and Blue's top finisher, as he shot a 4-over 76 on Saturday for a 54-hole total of 11-over 227. Fellow senior Martin Liu carded a 7-over 79 in Round 3 for a three-day score of 18-over 234 to tie for 64th place. Classmate Taylor Fuqua fired an 11-over 83 on Saturday and finished in 68th place with a 20-over 236.
Freshman Jack Persons and senior Brandon Rukin each shot their best round on Saturday, finishing in 72nd and 74th places, respectively. Persons fired a third round 3-over 75 for a total of 24-over 240, while Rukin shot a 4-over 76 for a 30-over 246.
GW loses Fuqua, Liu, Pumariega and Rukin to graduation after the quartet helped lead the Colonials to their first ever Atlantic 10 Championship, but is slated to return six players to the 2012-13 roster.
