Men's golf downs trio of top-25 teams to claim Southern Intercollegiate title

ATHENS, Ga. – Behind an all-around team effort, the Lipscomb men’s golf team claimed the Southern Intercollegiate on Monday beating three top-25 teams at the Athens Country Club in Athens, Georgia.

The Bisons fired a -12, 564 (285-279) to down No. 30 Florida State by three strokes.

“I’m extremely proud of our guys’ effort today, it was pretty awesome,” said Lipscomb director of golf Will Brewer. “We putted the ball really well and processed really well in some challenging conditions.  What’s really exciting to me is that I believe we still have even better golf in us that what we showed today.”
