Georgia Tech had a three-day score of 15-under-par 849 which was one shot behind the winner, South Carolina,  who scored 16-under-par 848. There was a tie for third between Auburn and Kennesaw State who both shot 12-under-par 852

Schneiderjans, who is the No. 3 ranked golfer collegiately according to golfweek.com , finished 12-under-par to earn an individual win in the tournament. He finished two shots ahead of Alabama’s, Robby Shelton, who is ranked No.2 collegiately.

This tournament is a nice start for not only Schniederjans but also the whole Yellow Jackets golf team.

Anders Albertson was able to shrug off some early trouble that he had in the first two rounds of the tournament and finished with a 2-under 214 performance over the three day span.

Redshirt senior, Drew Czuchry, tied for 32nd by shooting 2-over-par 218 for the tournament. This was his best tournament finish career wise and first time competing as a Yellow Jacket.

Michael Hines finished in 46th place shooting 5-over-par 221 for the tournament and Jacob Joiner finished tied for 53rd with an 8-over-par 224 performance.

Tech’s Vincent Whaley competed as an individual in this tournament and finished 23rd shooting even-par 216.

Yellow Jackets golf coach, Bruce Heppler, had to feel pleased with his teams performance. In a press release from ramblinwreck.com he talked about what he will take away from this tournament though they came up just short:

 “I think we’ll remember some shots that got away from us after the rain delay Friday, but we were tied for the lead today when we started, and we were in the mix all day.”

Next up for the No.2 ranked Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets is the Dick’s Sporting Goods Challenge in Kingston Springs, Tennessee from September 19th – 21st.
