BEALLSVILLE, Md. - The UAB men's golf team concluded its fall season with its first team title since 2011, taking home the Georgetown Intercollegiate title on Tuesday at The Members Club at Four Streams. UAB shot an 847 (-5) for the three-round event, defeating second-place finisher Notre Dame by 22 strokes.
"It was really nice to get a team win," head coach Alan Murray stated. "We were finally able to get it done. I am very proud and happy for them. It was a nice way to finish the fall."
Every member of the UAB lineup finished in the top 10 of the 60-player field. In addition, for the second consecutive tournament a Blazer was on top the individual leaderboard.
Junior Paul Dunne was the Georgetown Intercollegiate individual medalist, marking the first time in his collegiate career he has finished in first place. Dunne recorded a 209 (-4) for the tournament.
"I am very happy for Paul," added Murray. "It was good for him to get his first win. He works very hard and is so committed."
Not far behind Dunne was sophomore Martin Rohwer. Rohwer finished two strokes behind to tie for second place, his best finish of his UAB career, to date.
Finishing at one-under par, one stroke behind Rohwer, was redshirt senior Thomas Sutton. Sutton finished in a tie for fourth place individually. Both Sutton and Rohwer recorded their second top 10 finish of the 2013-14 season.
Senior Sam Love used a 215 (+2) to place ninth individually. Love has now finished in the top 20 of every event the Blazers participated in this fall.
Rounding out the lineup was senior Wilson McDonald. McDonald registered a 216 (+3) for the event, tying for 10th place. McDonald has been among the top 10 finishers in every tournament UAB played in this season.
