Today at Druid Hills Golf Club in downtown Atlanta saw 104 individuals battle over 18 holes for one of eight open slots in the Dogwood Invitational, to be held later this week. Three UGA players -- Arthur DeMoss, James Schultz, and Sepp Straka -- played today, hoping to join the six individuals who will be representing Georgia in the Dogwood proper. Unfortunately, Schultz and Straka finished with scores of 76 (T56) and 78 (T64), while DeMoss, despite shooting a 70 that was good for a tie for seventh and a chance at one of two remaining spots, was ousted in the first hole of a playoff featuring six other golfers. DeMoss could still wind up in the Dogwood, as he currently sits as the fourth alternate. The low round of the day belonged to Joe Lewis of Ole Miss, who shot a 4-under 68 to edge five competitors who tied for second: Will Long (auburn); Clement Kurniawan (Gardner-Webb University); Henry Mabbett (Georgia Southern); Zhongyang Fu (Purdue); and Alexander DeRosa (N/A). Taylor McCullum (Alabama-Birmingham) and Kyle Mueller (Michigan) won the playoff for the final two slots, and will join the rest of the field for the practice round tomorrow, followed by the actual tournament beginning on Wednesday.
