ROCKY FACE, Ga. - Wake Forest junior Davis Womble finished-off his best tournament as a Demon Deacon on Sunday with a 1-under 71. He finished a career-best 7-under par and was tied for fourth.
As a team, the Deacons posted a third-straight under-par round to finished in eighth place at 5-under par. Wake carded rounds of 286-287-286 and was 11-shots behind South Carolina, which won the event by one shot over host Georgia Tech.
"Any time you can shoot three under-par rounds, it's a good tournament," said Wake Forest head coach Jerry Haas. "Obviously, losing by 11 shots over the three days was not what we had in mind but I've been doing this for a long time and I can tell this team is going to be special. They get along so well and there is a lot of talent. This weekend has me really excited for the rest of the season."
Womble led the field for the weekend in par-4 scoring as he was 8-under par over the 54-holes. He made a total of 15 birdies and one eagle this week en route to scores of 68-70-71. The 7-under par total of 209 bested his previous career-low of even-par 216 which he did twice as a freshman in 2012-13. The fourth place finish was also a career-best for the High Point, N.C., native.
Freshman Will Zalatoris finished his first collegiate event under par after posting a 2-under 70 on Sunday. He closed his round with a nice birdie on the tough par-4 18th. The Plano, Texas native carded rounds 73 and 72 to open the event.
Senior Cyrus Stewart finished tied for 29th after a final round 74 while freshman Paul McBride was a shot behind Stewart at 2-over par as he finished with a 1-under 71 on Sunday. He made four birdies in the first under-par round of his career.
Sophomore Clancy Waugh rebounded from his opening round 78 to post rounds of 73 and 74 to finish tied for 57th at 9-over par.
Georgia Tech senior Ollie Schniederjans shot rounds of 64-68 over the final two rounds to win medalist honors at 12-under par.
The Deacons will have a couple of weeks off before hosting the Primland Collegiate Invitational at the Primland Resort on Sept. 29 and 30.
