Eastern Florida Golfers Finish Fourth at Faulkner State
Feb. 16, 2014 - Eastern Florida's golf team finished fourth in the Faulkner State Community College tournament in Fairhope, AL on Sunday.
The Titans shot an 18-hole total of 309 to go with Saturday's 304 for 613, 19 shots off the winning total of 594 by Faulkner State.
Wallace State Community College of Alabama finished second at 304-304-608. The University of Mobile was third at 308-302-610.
Wallace State's Aksel Olsen won medalist honors with a 74-68-142.

"We got off to a decent start and it got away from us in the latter part of the round," said Eastern Florida head coach Jamie Howell.
"It's a hard golf course. If you are on the wrong side of pin you will make a bogey. We got on the wrong side of the pin a few times."
Next up for Eastern Florida is the March 3-4 Darton State College Spring Invitational in Albany, GA on March 3-4.
