Saturday June 5, 1999Men's Golf Team Finishes 12th at NCAA Championship

CHASKA, MN

The University of Florida men’s golf team wrapped up its season with a 12th-place finish at the 1999 NCAA Championship Tournament at the Hazeltine National Golf Club on June 5. Florida carded a 64-over par 1216 after four rounds of competition. Georgia’s Ryuji Imada fired a tournament-best five-under par 67 on Saturday to lead the Bulldogs to their first national title. Oklahoma State (1183) finished just three shots behind Georgia, followed by Northwestern(1188) in third place, while Washington (1189) and Arizona State (1192) rounded out the top-five.

Individually, senior Steve Scott (Coral Springs, Fla.) ended his Gator career by leading the team with a 12-over par 300 to tie for 23rd. Freshman Camilo Benedetti (Medellin, Colombia) carded a 14-over par 302 to tie for 39th-place, while senior Steve Bradley (Ocala, Fla.) tied for 51st with a 17-over par 305.

"We played mediocre for two days and poorly two days," Head Coach Buddy Alexander stated. "The outcome was disappointing after the spring had been so hopeful. What is important now is not to let this diminish the success we had during the season."

Northwestern’s Luke Donald earned medalist honors with a four-under par 284. Imada and Washington’s Troy Kelly tied for second with a one-under par 287. Florida sophomore Nick Gilliam (Gainesville, Fla.) finished 70th with a 25-over par 313, and freshman Taylor Walsh (Napanoch, N.Y.) shot a 35-over par 323 to finish 80th.

While the Gators have concluded their season, both Bradley and Scott will continue to play. The two will be compete in the U.S. Open sectional qualifying at Bear Lakes on June 7.
