EATONTON, GA (March 21, 2017) -- With temperatures in the low 80's Baylor stayed hot as they cruised on Tuesday to the Linger Longer Invitational title. It was the Bears third win in their last four events as they continue their ascent up the rankings with postseason fast approaching.
Playing at Great Waters Golf Course the Bears finished the week 33-under-par setting a new team scoring record.
Baylor saw four players record top-10 finishes, led by Matthew Perrine's second place 11-under showing. During the tournament Perrine turned in rounds of 67-69-69 as he recorded his third top-five showing of the season.
On Tuesday Perrine was nearly flawless rolling in four birdies and a bogey.
Right behind Perrine for Baylor came Braden Bailey (T3; -10), Cooper Dossey (T8; -6) and Garrett May (T10; -5).
In the individual standings Georgia's Greyson Sigg held onto to his 36-hole lead to claim his first medalist title of the season and fourth his career.
Sigg, 16-under, posted scores of 67-65-68 to ease his way into a five-stroke victory. During his final round 4-under 68, Sigg birdied three-times, bogeyed once and then closed with a statement eagle on the par-5 18th.
"I could not be any prouder of Greyson,” Georgia coach Chris Haack said. “He has been rock solid for us this season. He’s our captain leading both on and off the golf course. He struck the ball great this week and really earned this victory.”
Perrine was second, Bailey and Chris Guglielmo (Kennesaw State) shared third at 10-under while Derek Bard (Virginia) and Bryce Hendrix (UNCG) tied for fifth at 8-under.
