BUCHANAN, Tenn. --- The Tennessee State Men’s golf team fended off a charge to claim the Skyhawk Fall Classic. The Tigers shot a 6-over, 294, and needed every bit over their 10-stroke lead they had built through the first two rounds to hold off Murray State. The Racers fired a 3-under, 285, on the final day, but was one stroke shy of catching the Tigers.
The team victory was the first regular season win for Tennessee State since the fall of 2010. The Tigers, consisting of Dorian Vauls, Richard Gill, Andrew Warner, Ryan Pierson and Ryan Smith, teamed to win the National Black College Invitational championship.
John Tyminski paced TSU on the final day with a 3-under, 69. Tyminski jumped seven spots from day one to 10th place and claim his first top 10 finish of the season. Drew Owens continued his steady play with an Even par, 72, to place fourth. This marks the first time Owens finished in the top five, since his championship performance at the PGA Minority Championship as a freshman in 2016.
Mikus Ming posted a 3-over, 75, while Scotty Hudson shot a 6-over, 78, to score for the Tigers on Tuesday. Tyler Woods finished one stroke off a countable score for the Tigers over the final 18 holes with a 7-over, 79.
