Pirates Snag Third at Alamo City Classic
SAN ANTONIO, Texas - The Southwestern men's golf team close out the fall season with their highest finish third place, at the Alamo City Classic. Three Pirates shot below or even-par on the second day to end with 590 strokes, 11 shy of the top spot.
SU struggled on the much more difficult front nine on day one and finished the opening round in fourth place with 298 strokes, led by Cody Patrick's (pictured) impressive one-over-par 73.
After gaining confidence and knowledge of the course, Southwestern finished strong led by Mikey Vaughan. Vaughan shot a one-under-par 71 on day two, ending in a tie for fifth place with 145 strokes, just four away from tournament winner Jacob Walsh of UT Tyler.
James Charles matched Vaughan's day two effort, shaving five strokes off his opening round to post a 71 of his own to end with 147 strokes and tied for seventh place with teammate Jordan Cowart. Cowart improved three strokes over his first round, shooting a 75-72.
Patrick faltered slightly on day two and came in as the fourth finisher for the Pirates, tied for 16th overall, with 151 strokes. Zach Sewill rounded out SU's team score with 160 strokes (77-83) and tied for 32nd.
The Classic marks the end of the fall season for Southwestern. They return to competition in the spring, opening the season at the University of Mary Hardin Baylor Invitational on February 27-28 in Temple, Texas.
