CHARLESTON, S.C. - At the 2007 Charleston Southern Fall Invitational hosted by Charleston Southern University, the FGCU men's golf squad finished in fourth place. The men’s team has taken fourth place three consecutive times this fall.
“As a team we finished fourth again and we’ve found ways to put ourselves in contention,” said Assistant Coach J.P. Meyer. “Unfortunately this week we didn’t close out, but we went out and did as best we could. We’re just a couple shots short.”
The participating schools were Radford, Longwood, Belmont Abbey College, FGCU, Liberty, Presbyterian College, Jacksonville, Gardner-Webb, High Point, Stetson, Charleston Southern and Creighton.
The 54-hole event was played at the Crowfield Country Club in Goose Creek, S.C. The teams played 36 holes on Monday (Oct. 22) and a final 18 on Tuesday (Oct. 23).
The Eagles recorded a composite team score of 905 during the tournament’s 54 holes. Radford took the team tourney title with an 886, 15 strokes ahead of second place finisher, Longwood.
Robert Taylor was the Eagles' top finisher in the two-day event turning in a one-under 222 (+6) which placed him in a tie for sixth-place overall. His low round of the tournament was a 71 that he scored in the second round.
Daniel Mazziotta came in second on FGCU's scorecard with a three-round total of 224 (+8) which tied him for 11th individually. Mazziotta’s opened the tournament with back-to-back 74’s in the first and second rounds.
