Pierce fired a team-best 70 in the final round

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Freshman Julian Suri fired a final-round 74 to finish in a tie for 15th as Duke ended the UNCG Bridgestone Collegiate in ninth place (872, +8) this afternoon at Forest Oaks CC. Junior Matthew Pierce and sophomore Spencer Anderson also finished in a tie for 15th individually for the Blue Devils.

The 21st-ranked Blue Devils placed in the top 10 for the second consecutive tournament. Duke shot a team score of 299 (+11) today for a three-round total 290-283-299=872 (+8). Georgia Tech ran away with the tournament at 21-under-par.

Suri had three bogeys in the front nine to go out in 39, but the freshman recorded two birdies on the par-4 10th and the par-4 16th to come in one-under to score a final-round 74. The St. Augustine, Fla. had rounds of 70-70-74=214 (-2) to complete the tournament tied for 15th place.

Brinson Paolini entered the clubhouse in a tie for 32nd after shooting a final round 77. Paolini went out in 39 and came in at 38 to have a three-round total of 73-69-77=219 to finish at three-over-par for the tournament.

Junior Wes Roach fired a 74 on Sunday in his up-and-down round to end the tournament at four-over-par (74-72-74=220). Roach had four birdies in his final round but a double-bogey on the par-three eighth hurt his chances of going low.

Senior Adam Long tied for 38th. Long carded rounds of 73-72-76=221 to end at five-over-par. Freshman Adam Sumrall finished the tournament at nine-over-par (74-76-75=225).

Anderson, Pierce and freshman Tim Gornik all competed as individuals at the UNCG Bridgestone Collegiate. Anderson and Pierce both had good showings, both ending in a tie for 15th place, which was the best mark by any individual player in the field. Anderson shot a 74 today and was two-under par for the tournament (72-68-74=214). Pierce had rounds of 72-72-70=214 (two-under par) to put together three days of consistent golf. Pierce's final-round 70 was the best Duke score today. Gornik ended in a tie for 53rd (74-71-79).

Duke will be teeing it up for the final time this fall on Nov. 9-11 at the Corde Valle Collegiate in San Martin, Calif.
