GREENSBORO, NC – The University of Washington and Lee men’s golf team No. 12 was led by Pierce Robinson (Kings Mountain, NC/Thomas Jefferson Classical) who tied for fourth in the season opener at the Gate City Invitational.
Robinson racked up ten birdies and par for 37 holes over the three invitational rounds and went 72-70-68 for a score of 210 (-3). His three under par in the third round helped him climb eight places to lead the Blue and Whites.
Starmount Country Club’s par-71 course saw the Generals shoot a second-lowest round of 283 on Sunday afternoon, the tournament’s third-lowest round.
The team returned four equal or lower scorecards over the three rounds, with Robinson responsible for two of them.
Guilford College’s Michael Vick (68-65-71—204-9) won the tournament and helped the Quakers finish on the top team (283-287-282—852 E).
Robinson and Owen Malcolm (Atlanta, Ga./Holy Innocents’ Episcopal) both averaged 2.92 (-1) on a par three, with Robinson being one of three individuals to shoot even on a par four.
Elias Malakoff (Mercer Island, Wash./Seattle Academy) drilled an eagle on hole 14 in round three.
