Georgia Southern sophomore Henry Mabbett carded an even-par 72, and the Eagles shot a team total of 297 to jump ahead two spots and finish fifth at The Invitational at the Ocean Course Tuesday. It’s GSU’s second top-5 team finish of the season.
“We limited our big numbers today, which helped us move up a few spots,” said Georgia Southern coach Larry Mays. “Top-5 finishes are always a goal each week, and it’s nice to get there today. We are still looking for a breakout round to really get us going.”
Will Evans shot a 76 today to finish 14th (+5) in the individual standings, and Scott Wolfes posted a 73 to tie for 17th (+7).
Mabbett’s 72 was the lowest in his career as an Eagle. Hayden Anderson posted a 76, Drew Guffey, who played as an individual, carded a 79 and Kim Koivu shot an 82.
The Eagles will cap the fall season by co-hosting a tournament with North Florida Nov. 4-5. The Eagle/Osprey Classic will be at Deer Creek in Jacksonville, Fla.
