Emory Wins Fourth Consecutive UAA Men's Golf Title

From Emory University Athletics

The No. 1-ranked Emory golf team won its fourth straight and the program's 19th University Athletic Association Championship on Sunday afternoon, posting a 3-2 down-to-the wire victory over No. 15 Carnegie Mellon. The Championships were played at the 6,776-yard, par 72 Hammock Beach Resort Course in Palm Coast, Florida.

Using a match-play format, Emory posted a 3-2 decision over the Tartans. The match was deadlocked at 2-2 with Logan Ryan and Jay Milch heading to the 18th hole. After Ryan's tee shot, Milch hit a pair of drives out of play whereupon he conceded the hole, giving the Eagles the win.

Below are the results of the match-play competition
Sam Galloway (EU) 4&2 over Joshua Lim (CMU)
William Knauth (CMU) 1 up over Matt Organisak (EU)
