Columbus State rebounds in Round 3 but falls short of advancing


SAVANNAH, Ga. -- The Columbus State men's golf team rebounded on Wednesday in the NCAA South/Southeast Regional at the Savannah Quarters Country Club.

The Cougars shot a 1-under-par 287, one of the best scores of the day in the 20-team field. Only Delta State at 276 and Barry at 284 were better.

But the good round was not enough to overcome the first two days. CSU finished with a three-round total of 43-over 907. The Cougars finished 15th, three places ahead of where they started the day.

CSU finished 26 shots out of seventh place. The top seven teams advanced to the NCAA championships.

Jack Stumpfig and Robert Mize tied for CSU's best round at 2-under 70. Stumpfig and Mize both finished at 8-over 224 and in a tie for 31st.

Yannick Gumowski shot an even-par 72 for a total of 227. He tied for 78th.

Bryan Lichimo shot a 75 and tied for 52nd at 232.

Cates Culpepper, who had to withdraw from Monday's round with an injury, shot an 11-over 83, so his score did not count toward the team total. He finished the two rounds at 167.
