LAHAINA, Hawaii — Georgia sophomore Trent Phillips worked overtime to secure the first victory of his collegiate career on Sunday in the Ka‘anapali Classic Collegiate Invitational.
On the same day that former Bulldog All-American Brendon Todd ran away with the PGA Tour’s Bermuda Championship, Phillips needed seven extra holes to dispatch Oklahoma’s Quade Cummins. On the decisive hole, Phillips rolled in a birdie putt to claim medalist honors.
In his career, Phillips had finished second once and third four times.
On Royal Ka‘anapali’s par-71, 6,700-yard layout, Phillips fired a final-round 7-under 61 to finish 54 holes in 20-under 193. HIs 20-under tally topped the school record of 18-under set by Chris Kirk in 2007.
The Bulldogs closed with a 17-under 267 on Sunday to improve to fourth at 33-under 819. Oklahoma took team honors at 47-under 805, followed by Washington at 42-under 810, and UCLA at 35-under 817.
Senior Spencer Ralston added a 6-under 65 for the Bulldogs, followed by junior Davis Thompson at 4-under 67, and senior Calum Masters and redshirt freshman Nicolas Cassidy both at even-par 71.
Thompson finished 12th with an 8-under 205, while Ralston took 18th at 7-under 206. Cassidy landed at 3-over 216, followed by Masters at 4-over 217.
Trevor Phillips, a senior competing as an individual, fired a 3-under 68 on Sunday to finish 12th at 8-under 205.
