AWENDAW, S.C. -- The Duke men's golf team posted a two-over 290 Tuesday in the final round of the Hootie at Bulls Bay Intercollegiate to finish 12th overall at the event. Sophomore Motin Yeung carded an eagle on the final hole of play to shot a two-under 70, while freshman Max Greyserman recorded his first career hole-in-one on the par 3 seventh hole to highlight the round for the Blue Devils.
Auburn blistered the Bulls Bay Golf Club for a 15-under 273 to claim a three-shot victory over South Carolina with a 12-under 852. College of Charleston placed third with a seven-under 857 followed by Virginia (-6, 858) and Wake Forest (+1, 865). Kentucky's Ben Stow recorded a five-under 67 Tuesday to finish with a seven-under 209 along with Niclas Carlsson (Auburn), who fired a six-under 66 in the final round. Stow went on to claim individual medalist honors with a win in a playoff with Carlsson.
Yeung finished tied for 26th with a three-over 219 after firing a 70 (-2) Tuesday. He opened up on the back nine with three straight pars before moving into red figures with a birdie on the par 5 13th hole. He stumbled with three bogeys over the next six holes to slip to two-over. Yeung rebounded with birdies on No. 4 (par 5) and No. 7 (par 3) to get back to even-par. He closed out the tournament in tremendous fashion by holing out for eagle from 125-yard out on No. 9 for his seventh under-par round of the season. Yeung's eagle on the final hole landed softly on the green just short of the pin, took two bounces and spun left into the cup.
Alexander Matlari registered his top round of the tournament with an even-par 72. He opened the day with a birdie on No. 10 and move to two-under with a birdie on the par 4 16th hole. Back-to-back bogeys on No. 18 and No. 1 dropped the freshman from Germany back to even-par. He responded with a birdie on the par 5 fourth hole but suffered a third bogey of the round on the next hole. Matlari capped off the day with four straight pars for his team-leading fourth even-par round. He ended the tournament tied for 40th with an eight-over 224.
Junior Turner Southey-Gordon finished tied for 46th with a nine-over 225 after shooting a three-over 75 in the final round. He started strong with four straight pars before running into trouble with a triple-bogey on No. 14 and a double-bogey on No. 15. The Ontario, Canada, native added a birdie on No. 18 but slipped back to five-over with a bogey on No. 1. He trimmed strokes with birdies on the par 5 second and fourth holes and ended the round with five straight pars.
Austin Cody, a senior from North Charleston, S.C., collected 17 pars and one bogey en route to a one-over 73 Tuesday. He finished the tournament 66th with a 14-over 230.
Freshman Max Greyserman struggled for a majority of his round before closing out the final five holes at two-under. His signature moment of the tournament came on the par 3 seventh hole when he flew in a nine-iron from 149 yards out for his first career hole-in-one. Greyserman is the first Blue Devil to record an ace in tournament play since Adam Sumrall had a hole-in-one during the 2012 Irish Creek Collegiate.
