Golf Finishes Fourth at Atlanta Intercollegiate

March 30, 2004

Jack Ferguson shot a final round 73, but finished in third place out of 64 golfers, leading Clemson to a fourth place finish out of 12 teams at the Atlanta Intercollegiate on Tuesday. The 54-hole, two-day event was held at Eagle’s Landing Country Club in Stockbridge, GA, a par 72 course that is 6,899 yards in length.

Ferguson had a 208 score for his three rounds, third best behind Florida players Camilo Villegas (204) and Jessie Mudd (206). Ferguson had a one-shot lead after two rounds off opening rounds of 70-65. It was his best finish of the year, his fourth top 10 of the year to tie Matt Hendrix for the team lead in that area.

Stephen Poole, a sophomore who had played in just one tournament prior to the Chris Schenkel Invitational, had his second consecutive top 10 finish. Poole was Clemson’s only under-par golfer on Tuesday as he fired a two-under 70 to finish at 210, tied for sixth place with Scott Jamieson of Augusta State. Poole had a second round 67 to key his performance, the low round of his young Clemson career.

Matt Hendrix had a third round 73 on Tuesday to finish at one-over-par 217 for the tournament, good enough for 24th place. Gregg Jones had a final round 74 to finish at 221, 36th overall. Brian Duncan had a 75 on Tuesday and finished at 224, good enough for 41st.

Clemson had a team total of 855, nine-under-par. That was Clemson’s best team performance versus par this year. The only tournament that is better is a 26-under-par effort at the Jerry Pate Intercollegiate back in October.

Florida won the event by 14 shots with an 839 figure. South Carolina was second at 853, followed by host school Georgia State, who shot 854, one better than Clemson. Georgia Tech and Georgia were tied for fifth at 862, while Augusta State was seventh at 864. Alabama was eighth at 873, Auburn was ninth at 874, Florida State was 10th at 885, College of Charleston was 11th at 888 and Vanderbilt was 12th at 894.

Clemson will be back on the course again on Saturday when it takes part in the two-day, 54-hole Augusta State Invitational at Forest Hills Country Club in Augusta, GA.
