Men's Golf Finishes 17th At Isleworth-UCF Invitational
Oct. 25, 2005
Windermere, Fla. - The Stanford men's golf team battled the winds to finish 17th at the second annual Isleworth-UCF Collegiate Invitational today. The Cardinal posted a three-round score of 925 (302-297-326). The University of Georgia successfully defend its title shooting a final round 14-over-par 302 and finished the tournament at 8-over-par, seven shots ahead of 2004 runner-up Oklahoma State. Rounding out the top five were Georgia Tech (894), Arizona State (899) and Wake Forest (899).
Strong winds kept the scoring high Tuesday with the low round of the day being an even-par 72 turned in by Georgia's Kevin Kisner, who tied for third with Georgia Tech's Kevin Larsen and Vanderbilt's Luke List for third at 2-over-par for the tournament. The field average Tuesday was 80.2, compared to 75.03 for the 36 holes Sunday.
Oklahoma State's Pablo Martin earned medalist honors by finishing the 54-hole event at 4-under-par, two shots ahead of Georgia's Chris Kirk. Martin and Kirk shared medalist honors last year. The players were neck-and-neck coming down the stretch until Martin made eagle on the 17th hole. He nearly made double-eagle on that hole as his approach from 220 yards to the long par 5 rolled up and hit the pin and stopped inches from the cup.
The Cardinal were led by sophomore Rob Grube who tied for 32nd overall after carding a three-round score of 226 (72-74-80). Junior Zack Miller tied for 45th after shooting a 230 for the tournament (74-77-79). Teammate Matt Savage tied for 61st with a 234 (79-73-82). Seniors Scott MacDonald (83-73-85) and Kyle Gentry (77-79-85) tied for 76th with a 241.
