David Earns Top-20 Finish In The Hootie At Bulls Bay Rebels Finish Ninth
March 27, 2012
AWENDAW, S.C. –Joe David earned his eighth top-20 finish in as many tournaments this season, as the Ole Miss Rebels completed play in the Hootie at Bulls Bay on Tuesday afternoon.
The Rebels entered the day in seventh place, but struggled with windy conditions and finished with a 315 on the final day to conclude the tournament in ninth. No. 5 Auburn took home the tournament championship, finishing nine strokes ahead of second place No. 20 Virginia.
“As a team, we have not learned how to handle windy conditions well at all this year,” said Ole Miss head coach Ernest Ross. “A lot of it is attitude. We get down on ourselves and don’t handle adversity well. We have a lot of lessons to learn and a lot of improving to do.”
David had the low score of the day for the Rebels, carding a 5-over 77. The senior finished at 2-over for the tournament—good for 12th place.
The Rebels will be back in action April 2-3, as they host the BancorpSouth Intercollegiate at Reunion Country Club in Madison, Miss. Fans can follow the Rebels on twitter at @OleMissMGolf and on facebook at www.facebook.com/OleMissMGolf.
