Clemson 11th at Isleworth Collegiate

Oct. 25, 2005

Orlando, FL – Stephen Poole fired a final round 73, the third best round of the day by any individual, and finished in the top 10 at the Isleworth-UCF Collegiate Invitational at Isleworth Country Club in Orlando, FL. Poole finished the event with a 220 score to finish in eighth-place after rounds of 70-77-73.

Clemson was 11th in the 18 team field that included 14 teams currently ranked in the top 25 in the Coach’s Association College Golf Poll. The Tigers had a three-day total of 912. The 19th ranked Clemson team was tied for 11th with 11th ranked UCLA at 48 over par. Georgia won the event with a 872 score, eight over par. Oklahoma State was second at 878 while Georgia Tech was third at 894.

The scores were high in the windy conditions on the par 72 course that is 7493 yards in length. No team shot under 300 as a team and no individual broke par. The Tigers were in fifth place with six holes left, but played the final six holes in 20 over par as the weather conditions became worse.

Among the ranked teams Clemson defeated in the event were fourth ranked UNLV, who had a 916 total, and 15th ranked Augusta State, who shot a 917. Eighth ranked Wake Forest finished fourth with an 899 score, but shot a 330 score as a team on Tuesday, 42 over par.

Poole’s round was bettered on Tuesday only by Pablo Martin of Oklahoma State, the individual medallist who shot a 72, and Kevin Kisner of Georgia, who also shot a 72. Poole started the day in 30th place, but his 73 moved him up 22 places and he recorded his first top 10 finish in two years.

Brian Duncan, who was in third place with six holes left, struggled down the stretch and shot an 81 for the day. But, he still had an 18th place finish in the national field of 90 golfers. He had rounds of 70-72 and 81 for a 223 total. He had an 11th place finish at the same tournament last year.

Tanner Ervin was Clemson’s third best golfer at the event with a 233 score, but he had an 84 on Tuesday. Martin Catalioto was 68th after rounds of 79-76 and 81. Freshman David May shot a 249 in the windy conditions for the three rounds.

Clemson will conclude the fall portion of its schedule November 4-6 at the Carpet Classic in Dalton, GA.
