WILMINGTON, N.C. — Georgia’s Lee McCoy continued his recent hot streak by sharing medalist honors at the Seahawk Intercollegiate on Monday, March 30th, 2015 at the Country Club of Landfall.
McCoy, a junior, finished at even-par 216, including a final-round 2-over 74. McCoy and Virginia Commonwealth’s Adam Ball were declared co-medalists.
McCoy won for the second straight week, for the third time this season and for the fourth time in his career. He also has finished second, fourth, fifth, 11th and 12th, and his season average is now 69.91. Last week, he was chosen as the National Golfer of the Week by Golfweek and as the Co-Golfer of the Week by the Southeastern Conference.
“Lee is playing with a tremendous amount of confidence right now,” Georgia coach Chris Haack said. “He really believes he can go out and win every time we tee it up. A team with a leader like that really has the potential to succeed.”
The Bulldogs shot the lowest score of the third round only to come up just short in the team competition. Georgia’s closing loop of 5-over 293 landed it at 21-over 885. Campbell claimed team honors at 16-over 880. Rounding out the top five were Army (22-over 886), Virginia Commonwealth (28-over 892) and Harvard (35-over 899).
Freshman Zach Healy paced the Bulldogs on Monday at 1-under 71, followed by McCoy, senior Nicholas Reach and sophomore Greyson Sigg all at 2-over 74. Junior Sepp Straka had the Bulldogs’ non-counting score of 4-over 76.
Healy placed third at 2-over 218, while Reach wound up at 10-over 226, Straka checked in at 11-over 227 and Sigg finished 38th at 13-over 229.
Playing as an individual, senior Mookie DeMoss came in third at 2-over 218 after closing with a 1-over 73.
The Bulldogs will return to action Saturday and Sunday (April 4th & 5th) in the 3M Augusta Invitational at Forest Heights Golf Club.
