Men's golf takes second at Charleston Southern Invitational
Oct. 31, 2006
CHARLESTON, S.C. - Russell Knox carded a four-under par 68 as the Jacksonville men's golf team took second place behind South Carolina at the Charleston Southern Invitational.
Knox's 68 was his second straight and allowed him to finish the tournament at seven-under par, just three shots behind Western Carolina's Matt Cook.
South Carolina won the 10-team competition after posting a five-under par 283 in the final round to finish with a three-round total of 861. JU took second, posting a 291 in the final round and finishing at 872.
"This was a good finish for us today against a good field," said JU head coach Jim Taketa. "This tournament was really good for Joshua Kinsey to get some action and now we know what we need to work on as we gear up for our spring season."
Duncan Stewart missed out on his third individual title of the season after carding an even-par 72. Tied for the lead overnight, Stewart finished alone in third at six-under par, 210.
Kinsey just missed out on a top 20 finish in his first collegiate event, tying for 24th after a four-over par 76 put him at nine-over par, 225, for the tournament. Matt Kleinrock stepped up for JU, shooting a three-over par 75 to tie for 29th, 12-over par, 228.
Kipp Henritzy, playing in his first tournament of the season as well, shot a 79 in the final round to finish in 43rd at 239.
The tournament wraps up the fall schedule for JU, with two titles and a runner-up finish in four events. The Dolphins spring schedule features two trips to the west coast as well as their title defense at the Atlantic Sun Championship in mid-April.
