Golf: Tolson's Strong Finish Leads Louisiana In Mobile
Matt Sullivan, Associate Director of Athletics Communications
MOBILE, Ala. – Jack Tolson, celebrating his 22nd birthday, overcame a sluggish start by shooting a 3-under-par 69 to earn his ninth career top-20 finish and lead the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Golf team to an eighth-place overall finish at the Mobile Sports Authority Intercollegiate on Tuesday at Magnolia Grove Crossings Golf Course.
Peter Hinnant fired a 1-under-par 71 on the par-72, 7,212-yard course for Louisiana while Hudson Dubinski and Charlie Flynn each carded rounds of 2-over-par 74 as Louisiana posted a team score of even-par 288 to finish at 862 for the 54-hole tournament. Hunter Hammett posted a score of 3-over 75 for the Ragin' Cajuns with Bjorn Gudjonsson, competing individually, posted his second straight below-par round with a 1-under 71.
Tolson, who opened the day on Monday with a 3-under 69 before shooting a 3-over 75 in the afternoon, started his final round with a bogey at No. 10 and a double bogey at 11 before coming back with a birdie at No. 13 and an eagle at 16. The senior made the turn at 1-over 37, and after a bogey on the par-3 No.2, he would record five birdies in his final seven holes to finish at 3-under 213 and a tie for 19th place.
Hinnant, who finished at 222 during the two-day tournament for Louisiana, posted a 2-under par 34 on the back nine before shooting a 1-over 37 on the front. Dubinski (71-69-74-214) earned his best 54-hole finish for Louisiana after rallying from a 40 on the back nine with a 2-under 34 on the front.
Flynn (76-69-74-219) overcame a rough start to the day that saw a pair of bogeys and a double bogey on his first three holes to go bogey-free on the front nine, carding a 2-under 34 and finishing tied for 49th.
Gudjonsson, who posted his third-career round in the 60's in Monday's second round, overcame a pair of bogeys on the front nine with a birdie at No. 4 and an eagle – his second in as many days on the front nine – at the par-5, No. 6.
Two-time defending champion Florida State rallied from a six-stroke deficit to claim a one-shot victory over No. 50 Illinois. The Seminoles carded a team score of 277 in the final round to finish at 836 with Illinois (837), No. 15 Louisiville (838), UAB (842) and first-day leader Texas State (842) rounding out the top five. Host South Alabama and Southern Miss finished tied for sixth at 860 with Louisiana (862), Wofford (865) and Illinois State (865) rounding out the top 10 in the 14-team field.
Florida State's John Pak fired a six-under 66 in the final round to finish with a tournament-record score of 15-under 201 to claim medalist honors for the second straight year. Texas State's Calvin Ross and Logan Lockwood finished six shots back in a tie for second.
Louisiana will return to action beginning on Sunday when it travels to Humble, Texas for the All-American Intercollegiate at the Golf Club of Houston. The 54-hole event is hosted by the University of Houston and Rice University and will conclude on Tuesday.
