Golf Wins Second Straight Rehoboth Beach Invitational
Sept. 27, 2004
REHOBOTH BEACH, DE -- GW sophomore Jack Tyler (right) fired an even-par 144 (75-69) to win the Rehoboth Beach Invitational Monday at the par-72, 6,664-yard Kings Creek Country Club on the Delaware shore. Tyler's performance helped George Washington capture the team title as well with a 596 (308-288) for the 36-hole event.
Tyler and Drexel's Jeffery Michner tied with 144s and a match of cards format was used to determine a single winner. The format consists of comparing the tied players' scores on the No. 1 handicap hole, in this case, the 17th hole. Tyler's score on No. 17 was lower than Michner's and Tyler was awarded the medalist trophy. Tyler shot six-under-par over the final 22 holes to take the lead.
Drexel was six strokes off the pace with a 602, and 16 strokes ahead of GW's B team (618).
GW junior Andrew Gallo was third with a 147 (76-71) out of 56 individuals.
It marked the first tournament victory for Tyler in his brief GW career. He tied for 11th with a 151 in this event last year.
