Men's Golf Finishes Fifth at NCAA Championships

More Information:    

WILLIAMSBURG, VA. -- The Coastal Carolina men’s golf team slipped but still posted the best team finish in any sport in the history of the Big South Conference, finishing fifth at the 2007 NCAA Men’s Golf Championship, May 30-June 2. The 72-hole event was played at the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club (Par 70 - 6803 yards) in Williamsburg, Va.

 

Entering the final round in second place, Coastal was unable to put the final round together and slipped into fifth after a 298 gave the Chanticleers a four-round total of 1128. This was the first time a team from the Big South Conference had qualified for the final round of the NCAA Championship, with CCU having been in the event the previous two years. Third-round leader Stanford took home the team honors with 1109, 12 shots better than runner up Georgia. Lamar and Charlotte tied for third at 1125.

 

Senior All-American Dustin Johnson, who earned his third All-American honors this season and second straight First Team honor, posted a top-10 finish in his final collegiate tournament, tying for ninth at two-under 278. Junior Lindsay Renolds was next for CCU in a tie for 15th at one-under 279. Jamie Lovemark of Southern California, playing as an individual for the final round, took home medalist honors at nine-under 271, two shots ahead of Kyle Stanley of Clemson.
