The Oglethorpe men's golf team saw their team of five individuals move up the leaderboard Tuesday in the final round of the Chick-fil-A Collegiate Invitational at Stonebridge Golf Club in Rome, as they posted a 24-over 312 on the day to move three spots up the leaderboard into seventh place at the windswept course. That mark put them 27 strokes back of champion LaGrange.
Freshman Connor Murphy completed his solid tournament with a 7-over 79 on Tuesday to finish tied for ninth at 6-over 150. That put him six strokes back of a tie between LaGrange's Ben Womack and Emory's Michael Rosenbloom for the individual medal.
Junior Tyler Rover enjoyed an outstanding round on Tuesday to shoot 34 spots up the leaderboard into a tie for 37th with a 2-over 74 on the day. He finished the tournament at 10-over 154, as did freshman Michael O'Sullivan. The Stormy Petrel freshman fired a 6-over 78 on the day.
Freshman Ned Narula tied for 51st at 13-over 157, leading a group of three individuals not a part of the five-man "B" team. Meanwhile, sophomore Tripp Murphy finished at 22-over 166 and freshman Jake Allstun shot 31-over 175.
This tournament marked the end of the fall season for the Petrels. They'll head into their winter break and return in early March for the Savannah Invitational.
