Golf Govs capture 2004 F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate

With four golfers finishing in the Top 10, Austin Peays mens golf team ended the fall season on a powerful note, capturing the 2004 F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate, played at the Links at Novadell.

Entering the day with just a three-stroke advantage, the Governors shot a third-round low of 281 for an 842 total, pulling away for a 13-stroke victory over fellow Ohio Valley Conference foe Samford. It was APSU's third straight victory in the teams own tournament and the fifth in six years.
With four golfers finishing in the Top 10, Austin Peay's men's golf team ended the fall season on a powerful note, capturing the 2004 F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate, played at the Links at Novadell.

Entering the day with just a three-stroke advantage, the Governors shot a third-round low of 281 for an 842 total, pulling away for a 13-stroke victory over fellow Ohio Valley Conference foe Samford. It was APSU's third straight victory in the team's own tournament and the fifth in six years.

The Govs 842 ranks second-best all-time for a 54-hole total behind the Spring 2003 round of 832 at Eastern Kentucky's Spring Invitational. In addition, the Govs' 275 first-round Monday was the third best single-round total and Tuesday's 281 was 10th best all-time.

“This was a great way to end the fall season and should allow us to carry momentum into the off-season and into next spring,” said APSU Coach Kirk Kayden.

For the second straight tourney, sophomore Justin Metzger led the way. He shot a final-round 68 to go with a pair of 71s Monday to finish at six-under 210, tying him for third place. Freshman Grant Leaver was next in fifth, shooting even par-72 Tuesday to end at 211. Another sophomore Yoshio Yamamoto also shot a final-day 72 for a 212 total, tying him for sixth, while fellow sophomore Chris Barron shot a 71 for a 213 total, tying him for ninth.
