Nov. 5, 2013
KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. - GW golf fired its low round of the tournament, and third-lowest of the fall season, with a 20-over-par 308 on Tuesday to conclude the Wendy's Kiawah Classic on the par-72, 7,061-yard Turtle Point Golf Course.
The Colonials finished in 18th place at their final tournament of the fall season with a three-round team total of 75-over 939 (321-310-308). The final round 308 trails only the 298 and 285 carded by the Colonials earlier this fall in the second and third rounds of October's ODU/OuterBanks Intercollegiate.
South Carolina bested the competitive field by 22 shots to capture its second consecutive Kiawah Classic title at even-par 864. Marquette's Nick Nelson edged South Carolina's Matthew NeSmith by two shots for medalist honors in the 96-player field at 6-under 210.
Freshman Lucas Farmer continued his consistent play at the event with a 5-over 77 on Tuesday to finish tied for 48th place at 13-over 229 (76-76-77).
Junior Jack Persons made four birdies and led the team for the second consecutive day by carding a 2-over 74 to tie for 59th place at 15-over 231 (84-73-74). Persons finished with a team-best 11 birdies during the 54-hole event.
Freshman Michael Heda shot his best round of the tourney with a 6-over 78 on Tuesday to tie for 78th at 22-over 238 (79-81-78).
Sophomore Michael Helton also recorded his lowest score in the final round of the Classic with a 7-over 79 to finish 92nd at 29-over 245 (86-80-79). Classmate Steve Piela closed with a 10-over 82 and placed 95th at 32-over 248 (82-84-82).
GW now has three months to prepare for its six-event spring season, which opens on Jan. 27-28, 2014 at the Arizona Intercollegiate in Tucson, Ariz., at the new Sewailo Golf Club.
