Vestavia Hills, Ala. - Ollie Schniederjans fired his third round under 70 for the tournament Tuesday and tied for second place individually, but Georgia Tech tumbled back to a sixth-place finish at the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate.

Tech, ranked No. 2 in the nation in the latest golf coaches' poll, was 2-under-par at the turn Tuesday and within striking distance of first-place Alabama. But the Yellow Jackets played the back nine of the Old Overton Golf Club (7,209 yards, par 70) in 13-over-par and finished with a round of 293.

Tech's 54-hole total of 856 (+16) was 26 shots back of the Crimson Tide (930, -10), which won its home event for the third straight year. Florida State finished second at 843 (+3), while UNLV was third at 849 (+9), both team playing the final round at level par. UAB (952, +12) was fourth, followed by Arkansas (853, +13).

Schniederjans began the round tied for the individual lead with Florida State's Hank Lebioda and Mississippi State's Ben Wood. The Tech senior and the FSU sophomore both turned in solid final rounds of 68, completing 54 holes at 8-under-par 202. But the Bulldog junior, who had shot 63 in the afternoon round Monday, continued his torrid pace by making birdie on five straight holes during his opening nine on the way to a 64. He finished with a tournament total of 198 (-12) and grabbed a four-stroke win.

For the Tech All-America senior from Powder Springs, Ga., Tuesday's round marked his fifth straight under 70 and the seventh in nine rounds this fall. His fall stroke average is 68.22.

Michael Hines shot 73 for Tech Tuesday, while the Jackets also counted a 75 from James Clark and a 77 from Anders Albertson, who was the Yellow jackets next-highest finisher at T27.

 

 

Tech returns to action Oct. 17-19 when it hosts the ninth United States Collegiate Championship at the Golf Club of Georgia in Alpharetta, Ga.
