Anders Albertson and Ollie Schniederjans each fired a 3-under-par 69 Friday to lead Georgia Tech, which closed with a flourish and tied for fourth place at the Amer Ari Invitational.
“Bo [Andrews] and Michael [Hines] each shot 73 after being +4 with five or six holes, left which is very positive,” said Tech head coach Bruce Heppler. “If Ollie and Anders continue to play like they did today, we can contend with the very elite teams. There are a lot of positives for us heading into Puerto Rico.”
Albertson birdied four holes in his closing round and tied for 10th place, his first top-10 of the year after securing three top-20 showings in the fall. The sophomore from Woodstock, Ga., nearly played the final 36 holes bogey-free before posting one on his finishing hole.
Tech’s other five players all finished among the top 40 individuals in the 116-player field. Hines tied for 26th place at 1-under 215, while Andrews, Schniederjans and Richard Werenski, who shot 75 Friday, tied for 34th place at even-par 144 along with freshman Shun Yat Hak, who was playing as an individual.
