Campbell Helps William & Mary Claim Title

Campbell 3rd from Right
Walker Campbell and his William & Mary Men's Golf teammates finished out the best tournament in school history, sweeping both the Team and Individual Medals at the Invitational at Savannah Harbor.

William & Mary shot a program-record 852 (-12) to win by 11 strokes over South Carolina Beaufort and the rest of the 14-team field, and also boasted the top two individual scorers on the par-72 Club at Savannah Harbor course.

This was the first team win for William & Mary since the 2013 Towson Invitational, and 20th overall in school history.

William & Mary's three-round score of 852 (-12) was four strokes better than the standing record, which was set by the 2007-08 squad at the Sea Trail Intercollegiate, and enabled by W&M shooting no worse than 2-under all weekend long.

William & Mary's first-round 281 (-7) is tied for the third-best single round ever, and Day Two's 285 (-3) is tied for 13th-best all-time.

Individually, senior Austin Morrison won his first career tournament, shooting an even-par 72 on Day Two to finish at 210 (-6). That's tied for the fifth-best tournament score ever at William & Mary. Morrison is the first man to Medal for William & Mary since the fall of 2013, when former great Alex Hicks '15 won the Joe Agee Invitational.

Runner-up honors went to sophomore David Hicks, who turned in his second-straight 70 (-2) to finish at 212 (-4) overall. His score is the 12th-best in school history, and junior Sam Aronoff is tied for 16th all-time after shooting 69 (-3) on Day Two and moving up to a tie for fourth overall at 214 (-2).

Sophomore Will Stewart carded a 74 (+2) in the final round to finish tied for 12th overall, and freshman Campbell matched him with another 74 to round out the team line-up in a tie for 20th at 220 (+4).

William & Mary was the only team to place all five of its players in the top-20, with no other squad claiming more than three. William & Mary's other two individuals, finished a stroke apart, with junior Bryce Johnson finishing with a 76 (+4) to stand tied for 58th (232, +16), and sophomore Gavin deFisser a stroke back in a tie for 62nd overall.
