Men’s Golf Achieves Overall Score of 20-Under to Complete Fall Season

Story Links KA’ANAPALI, Hawaii – Ole Miss men’s golf claimed its season low of 272 (-12) to finish the fall season with a bang on Sunday. With their third-round score, the Rebels finished their time at the Ka’anapali Classic in 8th place with an overall score of 832 (-20) – the lowest score relative to par this season. The Rebels’ success was led by Cameron Tankersley (T10) and Hugo Townsend (T17), who both managed to make the top 20. Tankersley took third in the top-20 of the four tournaments he participated in during his freshman campaign. This marks Townsend’s second top-20 ranking since moving to Ole Miss. “Our boys fought to the end today,” said head coach Chris Malloy. “Unfortunately it was the same story as yesterday and we had too many casual mistakes that cost us a great chance to really climb the standings. Without Sarut [Vongchaisit] in our lineup this week we were able to get a few other guys some playing time, which should get us started.” Tankersley came on a mission in his final round at the Royal Ka’anapali Golf Course, with the freshmen securing from a bogey-free back nine while birding four. Tankersley made seven birdies overall, giving him a 5-under score in the third round and an 8-under overall score to contribute to his tie for 10th Townsend played steady golf for the Rebels, who remained bogey free for 17 holes.The grad transfer resulted in four birdies throughout his round to finish with a round score of 68 (-3) and an overall score of 207 (-6). Meeks, competing individually for Ole Miss, had a standout final day in Aloha state, moving up 26 places on the standings. Meeks shot 17 holes of bogey-free golf while making five birdies. His score of 67 (-4) marks a new round with little c career for the Rebel. Patton Samuels had another solid day on the green. Samuels got four bi rdies and went par for 13 holes for a 68 (-3) third round score. The freshman finished 5-under overall and finished 22nd. After securing another career low at round 2, Eriksson had another successful day beating it. Eriksson made three birdies and finished with a score of 70 (-1) in the third round – the lowest round for the sophomore in his career. Brett Schell finished it off for the Rebels and shot 2-over for the day to finish in 7-overall. The Ka’anapali Classic marks the end of the fall 2022 season for the Ole Miss men’s golf team.
