Fourth-Place Finishes Delight, Disappoint Georgia Bulldogs Golfers

The Georgia men’s golf team carded a 12-under 276 on Friday to overcome a slow start and put the Bulldogs in contention for a top-five finish in the Colorado Regional and an accompanying bid to the NCAA Championships. By firing a one-under 287 on Saturday, the Red and Black finished the tournament at seven under par to finish fourth and earn Georgia a trip to Stillwater for the NCAA Men’s Golf Championships beginning on May 31.

The chase for the final spot was hotly contested, as the Bulldogs finished tied with Arizona State and ended up only one stroke ahead of Texas Christian for the final space in the next stage of postseason play.

At the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships in Bryan, Tex., a Georgia golfer also was part of a fourth-place tie, but this one was a disappointment, as Golfweek’s No. 1-ranked Marta Silva Zamora came up short in her bid for an individual NCAA title. After beginning the tournament with consecutive 71s, followed by a 72 on Friday, Silva Zamora finished with a one-over 73 on Saturday due to inconsistent putting. Though she sunk a 40-footer on the fifth hole and a six-footer on the 13th, Silva Zamora missed birdie opportunities from 12 feet at No. 11, eight feet at No. 12, six feet at No. 14, and three feet at No. 15 after double-bogeying the tenth hole, on which her ball found the woods.
