SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. --- Jermey Fultz jumped 19 spots on the final day of the Bobby Nichols Intercollegiate to place seventh in the field of 84 golfers. Fultz started the day in 26th before carding a 4-under, 68, to finish 2-under on the tournament.
Fultz made his charge on the final day with four birdies and an eagle, despite hitting just seven fairways on the day. The successful round was based on the senior finding 14 greens, needing just 22 putts and converting four up-and-downs. Fultz hit a 3-wood on his second shot on the par-5, 3rd, from 260 yards out to 12 feet. The Knoxville, Tenn. native sank the putt for his lone eagle of the tournament.
As a team, the Tigers finished eighth at 19-over for the three-day, 54-hole event. Drew Owens, John Tyminski and Kody Rendleman scored for TSU on the final day, while Scotty Hudson posted a non-scoring 78 on Tuesday.
The Tigers will take two weeks off before hosting the Big Blue Invitational on Apr. 9-10. The 54-hole tournament is the last before the Ohio Valley Conference Champiionship Apr. 23-25.
