Tuesday April 5, 2005No. 6 Men's Golf Runs Away with Morris Williams Crown; Treis Takes Top Individual Honors

Austin, Texas

Redshirt senior Richard Treis won his second career individual medalist honor at the Morris Williams

The No. 6 University of Florida men's golf team won its third tournament of the 2004-05 season by recording a three-round eight-over par score of 872 in the 2005 Morris Williams Intercollegiate at the Austin Country Club. The Gators maintained their lead from start to finish, while redshirt senior Richard Treis (Baden- Baden, Germany) also went wire to wire to win the second golf tournament of his career, carding a season-best, four-under par score of 212.

By winning their third team crown of the season, Florida extended a two-year streak where they won at least three tournaments to three seasons. In the last three seasons, UF has won a total of 13 team tournament titles.

Capturing his first individual tournament title as a Gator, Treis became the second UF golfer to claim top individual honors in a tournament this season. Joining Matt Every (Daytona Beach, Fla.) as the only other Gator golfer to win, Treis extends the UF streak of at least two different individual medalists in a season to five years to establish the longest stretch of multiple individual champions since 1975. The win by Treis makes him the 28th UF golfer to claim an individual medalist honor and marked the 65th overall individual win for Florida golf since 1975.

Junior Brett Stegmaier (Madison, Conn.) carded rounds of 73-70-77=220 (+4) to finish in a tie for fifth-place overall. Playing a solid tournament, Stegmaier is the only golfer to record two eagles in the 85-person field.

Earning the third top-20 finish of the season, junior James Vargas (Miami, Fla.) finished in a tie for 11th-place by recording scores of 74-71-77=222 (+6).

Every earned the third top-20 finish of the season as he earned scores of 72-70-81=223 (+7) to finish tied for 15th-place.

Redshirt freshman Manuel Villegas (Medellin, Colombia) fired his best round of the tournament on the final day as he carded scores of 80-78-76=234 (+21). For his efforts, Villegas earned a tie for 57th-place.

The sixth-ranked Gators will have a week off before they travel to Sea Island, Ga., for the 2005 Southeastern Conference Golf Championships.
