Wolves finish third in Laker Invite
Hampton, GA - UWG senior Zach Lassetter fired a second-straight 71 in Tuesday's final round at the Crystal Lake Golf & Country Club, leading the West Georgia men's golf team to a third place finish at the Laker Invitational.
Lassetter had one of the top tournament scores in his career at West Georgia, finishing at 2-under par for the tourney and earning All-Tournament honors with a second-place finish. He started the Laker Invitational with a 72, then followed up with two straight rounds of 71 and finished four strokes behind tournament champion Jordan Walor from UNC-Pembroke.
The Wolves placed three players in the top-15 at the Laker Invitational, led by Lassetter's second-place finish. Senior Bryn Powers finished with a 77 in the third round Tuesday, finishing at 5-over par for 11th place on the leaderboard.
Freshman Dan Merriman was the third UWG golfer in the top-15, as he fired a 73 in each of the final two rounds to finish at 7-over and in 14th place, his highest finish at a three-round tournament thus far.
Freshman Kevin Clarke rebounded with a 75 in the third round after an 82 in the second round to finish in 31st place and #Kyle Mimbs carded a 78 to finish five strokes behind Clarke in 34th place.
Jack Wall, playing as an individual, shot a 73 in the first and third rounds and finished in a tie for 17th place with a score of 8-over par for the tourney.
Tuesday's finale marks the final round of the fall for the Wolves, as West Georgia picks back up on February 13 with a trip to Lakeland, FL and the Lone Palm Golf Club for the Matlock Invitational.
