ROCKY FACE, Ga. - The TCU men's golf team finished the fall season with a 12th-place landing at the Carpet Capital Collegiate in Rocky Face, Ga. The Horned Frogs carded a 6-over 294 in Sunday's final round to complete the event with a 54-hole 891 (+27).
No. 17 Georgia State (856) won the tournament by one stroke over fifth-ranked Florida (857). The Frogs played well on the final two days of the tournament, netting a plus-8 total over the last 36 holes.
The tournament featured 12 teams who are rated among the top 25 in the nation according to the GCAA/Bridgestone Coaches' Poll, including four of college golf's top five squads. TCU topped three of the nationally-rated squads.
First-year player Robby Ormand (Austin, Texas) owned the top result for TCU with the best placing of his young career. Ormand fired a 1-under 71 in the last round to finish with a three-round 220 (+4). His final round included four birdies and an eagle. He missed out on his first collegiate top-20 finish by just one stroke, as he wound up with a share of 22nd place.
