Clemson, S.C.—Miller Capps had his third consecutive under-par round to lead Clemson to a ninth-place finish in the 15-team Linger Longer Invitational at the Great Waters Course at Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, Ga. Clemson finished with an 869 team score for the 54-hole event that completed on Sunday afternoon.
Third-ranked Texas won the tournament with a team score of 840, while Georgia was second at 845. The tournament featured seven of the top 32 teams in the nation according to the latest Sagarin Rankings published by Golfweek.
Capps finished in a tie for 12th in the individual race with a 212 score for the three rounds on the par 72 course that is 7073 yards in length. Capps had rounds of 71-70-71 and now has six straight rounds at 71 or better for the first time in his career. The junior played the par four holes at 3.90 for the tournament, sixth best in the 75 player field. Capps now has 13 under-par rounds for the year, second best on the team.
Cody Proveaux had an even par 72 to support Capps on Sunday. The junior had 15 birdies for the tournament, tied for third in the field, but he had four double bogeys and a triple bogey that kept him from contending for a top 10 finish. Proveaux finished with a 219 score for the three rounds.
