TEE SHOTS
  • Freshman Jake McNulty fired a final-round 74 turned in the best performance of his young VCU career to place fifth at the OBX/ODU Collegiate. McNulty, a native of Ontario, finished 3-under (69-70-74=213) at the 54-hole event. He remained in the hunt until late, but bogies on three of his final five holes kept the individual title out of reach.
  • McNulty's performance was due to sharp all-around play. He ranked in the top 20 in par 3, par 4 and par 5 scoring.
  • Scott Wolfes of Georgia Southern (-9) won a one-hole playoff with Weston Eklund of Radford to capture the individual championship.
  • VCU (+15) placed sixth after shooting 293 Tuesday. Georgia State (-10) pulled away for the team trophy, followed by Richmond (-8), Old Dominion (+4), Radford (+5) and George Mason (+11).
  • McNulty's fifth-place finish is the best by a Ram since Marc Dobias placed fourth at the Colonial Athletic Association Championship last year. His 213 score was the best 54-hole mark for a VCU player since the Marshall Invitational Sept. 12-13 of 2011.
  • Freshman Steffen Harm was VCU's low man on Tuesday, carding a 1-under 71. He finished 3-over (76-70-71=217) for the tournament and tied for 10th.
  • Juniors Matt Ball Jr. and Rocky Khara were 31st and 37th, respectively.
