Men’s golf places fourth, Georgia Southern wins Sun Belt

The Georgia State men’s golf team came home in fourth at the Sun Belt Conference championship Tuesday in Miramar Beach, Florida.

The Panthers shot a final round 292 and had three players finish individually in the top-20.

Senior Damon Stephenson and freshman Alexander Herrmann tied for 12th place overall at four-over-par for the tournament.

Freshman Max Herrmann tied for the 17th place overall with a five-over-par.

Georgia Southern took home the Sun Belt Championship with a 16-stroke victory. The Eagles were 11-over-par with a score of 295 on Tuesday but still managed to keep their distance from the rest of the competition. The Eagles finished 3-under-par for the tournament.

Georgia State matched Georgia Southern’s birdie count with 53 for the tournament. The deciding factor was the Panthers’ amount of double-bogeys. Georgia State had 16 holes that resulted in double-bogeys or higher in the 54-hole tournament.

The Panthers must now wait to see if they will receive an at large bid into the NCAA tournament. The selections will be announced on May 4.
