Anders Albertston continued his outstanding play and got some help from teammate Vince Whaley to help Georgia Tech post an easy victory at the Robert Kepler Intercollegiate at Ohio State’s Scarlet Course.It was the second victory of the year for the Yellow Jackets, ranked No. 15 in the nation.
Albertson, recent winner of the Byron Nelson Award, and Whaley each shot 1-under 70 on the final day and the Yellow Jackets finished the event at 4-under, 16 shots better than runner-up SMU. Ohio State was 16-over and Michigan was fourth at 17-over.
Albertson and Whaley tied at 5-under 208 and shared medalist honors. It was the second win for Albertson, the first for Whaley. Ollie Schniederjans closed with a 73 and tied for third.
“Everyone played well all weekend,” Georgia Tech coach Bruce Heppler said. “We’ve always tried to simplify things in this situation; when you have the lead and shoot the low round of the day, you’re going to win. Each guy just does his stuff each day. We’ve worked on being mentally tough, then we turn them loose on the golf course. Vince doesn’t have a lot of experience, but he hits the ball well. He played great. It’s been a while since Anders has been in the winner’s circle, but he’s played well all spring.”
