Greenville, S.C. -- The Clemson men’s golf team carded a final round 282 to rally from a three-stroke deficit on Sunday and claim the team title at the 41st Annual Furman Intercollegiate at the par-72, 6,994-yard Furman University Golf Course. Chattanooga’s Steven Fox drained a birdie putt on his final hole to share individual medalist honors with the Tigers’ Ben Martin at six-under par.
Trailing by two strokes, Fox (70-68-72=210) capped his round with a birdie at No. 18. Martin (70-71-69=210), playing in the final group with Fox, posted a bogey after a shot out of bounds and settled for a share of the tournament title after a potential playoff was cancelled due to darkness and wet course conditions. The pair finished five strokes ahead of third place Corbin Mills (72-76-67=215) of Clemson who tallied the low round of the day with a five-under 67.
The Tigers (289-294-282=865), three strokes behind Chattanooga (289-291-299=879) entering Sunday’s final round, finished 11 strokes ahead of the rest of the field over the final 18 holes to take a 14-stroke victory over the Mocs. Furman (305-290-298=893) placed third while Western Carolina, Kennesaw State and Old Dominion rounded out the top five.
Junior Austin Reeves (76-68-73=217), the tournament’s defending champion, shot a one-over 73 to grab a share of fifth place and help Furman to its third place finish. The Paladins’ Garland Ferrell (78-73-73=220) and Daniel Bowden (74-74-76=224) finished in a tie for 20th at eight over par. Furman’s Anthony Aloi (73-74-73=220), playing as an individual took eighth place.
