DESTIN, Fla. - The Saint Leo men's golf team climbed two spots on the final day of the Indian Bayou Classic on Tuesday, finishing fifth (304-299-603). The highlight of the tournament though was Austin Grey shooting a two-under, and winning the tournament in a sudden death playoff.
North Alabama won the team competition, shooting a 294 in the final round and a 587 for the tournament. Trailing them by just a stroke was Columbus State, who shot the lowest of any team in the final round when they carded a 292. In third place was the University of Montevallo, who was just five shots out of the lead. Saint Leo was able to rally in the final round and move up two spots on the leaderboard.
Finishing in first place for the tournament was Grey, who shot a two-under 70 in the final round, shaving two strokes off his score from the opening round. Grey was tied with Montevallo's Conner Godsey and North Alabama's Ricky Stimets after 18 holes after Godsey fired an impressive 68. The trio went into a sudden death playoff and Grey was able to come out with the victory in just his second tournament as a Lion after his beautiful 330 yard drive down the middle of the fairway set up his tournament-winning putt.
Nick Brothers finished in 13th place after he shot a two-under 70, as well. Five strokes behind Brothers was Chaz Heinz, who finished in 25th place for the tournament. Rounding-out the Lions' was Trevor Joseph and Ryan Connors who shot 162 and 172 respectively.
The Saint Leo men's golf team returns to competition on Oct 22-23 when they head to the Rollins Invitational held at the Rio Pinar Country Club.
