COHUTTA, Ga. — The Bethel men’s golf team was determined to shoot better scores in the final round of the Eagle Invitational at Nob North Golf Course and they did just that Tuesday. After trailing by seven strokes after day one, the Wildcat A squad shot a team score of 302, which put them in a three-way tie for first place in the 16-team event. The tie was broken by a scorecard playoff of the fifth player’s score of the final round. David Proctor, who had a poor start, hung tough and finished the day with a score of 79. This was good enough to defeat the Indiana University East and Cleveland State teams, who were tied with Bethel with a two-day score of 610.
Jaime Julve led Bethel in the final round with an even-par 72 to go along with his first-day score of 79. Zac Douglas, who was named to the all-tournament team in fifth place individually, was very consistent and shot his same-day score of three-over-par 75. Ty Crouch shot a 77 to go with his 76 from day one. Billy Atkins shot his second consecutive 78, and David Proctor had a 79 to go with his 81.
The Bethel B team improved three strokes over day one with a 330 which put them in eleventh place. Trey Register shot his second consecutive 78. John Stinson shot an improved 79, eight shots better than his day-one score of 87. Ethan Ricketts improved from an 88 to an 82. Hunter Tillman shot 91-86 and Marshall Burkett rounded out the team with a 95-82.
Coach Larry Geraldi stated, “It was a great and productive fall season for these men. With one senior, one sophomore and the rest freshman, each one of them are developing into the college game. With great finishes in several tournaments and winning our last event, Bethel men’s golf is on the upswing. We are looking forward to the competition the spring season will bring, and then the SSAC tournament as well.”
