Stout Shoots 69, Tigers Place 10th
Nashville, Tenn. – Freshman Andy Stout jumped 12 spots during the final round of the 2015 Big Blue Intercollegiate. Stout shot a 3-under, 69 on Tuesday at the Par-72, 7,157 yard President's Reserve Course at Hermitage Golf Club. The performance to close out the tournament propelled the Manchester, Tenn. product to a 17th place finish out of 80 golfers.
 
Ashton Van Horn of Belmont held off a charge by Mitchell Thomas of Tennessee Tech to claim top honors with a 15-under, 201. Tech turned in a remarkable outing, shooting 19-under on Tuesday to overcome Belmont for the team title.
 
Tennessee State (296-293-298=887) could not make up any ground over the final 18 holes as they finished in 10th place at 23-over.
 
Stout (73-73-69=215) was a perfect 14 of 14 on fairways and hit 15 of 18 greens on the day as he played his first bogey free tournament round of his career. The first-year accomplished the round with three birdies and 15 pars.
 
On the par-4, 6th, Stout hit a knock-down pitching wedge from 130 yards out to 15 feet to set up the first 1-under of the day. Stout picked up his second birdie with a 10 foot putt on the par-4, 10th, and picked up his third on the par-5, 18th. Stout was left with 260 yards after his driver found the middle of the fairway from the tee box. The freshman laid up on his second shot with a 7-iron to 93-yards. Stout used his 60-degree wedge to land 15 feet from the pin to set up his final birdie.
 
Jermey Fultz (73-73-77=223) hit five greens on the day to join Stout, Todd McGill and James Stepp in scoring for the Tigers.
 
McGill (76-79-73=228) carded his best round of the tournament as he hit 13 of 14 fairways and found 12 greens on Tuesday. The sophomore-transfer hit a wedge on par-5, 18th, to within three feet to set up his first of two birdies. McGill notched his second as he hit an 8-iron to five feet of the flag on No. 10.
 
Stepp (74-76-79=229) found the fairway as he hit a driver off the box on 18. Stepp fell short of the green with a 5-iron, which setup a wedge shot that landed two feet from the flag to set up a tap in for birdie.
 
Matt Campbell (76-71-84=231) registered his lone birdie of the day on the par-4, 17th, as his wedge shot from 135 yards out to set up the 1-under.
 
Blake Burgett (74-77-75=226), playing as an individual, hit 10 of 14 fairways and nine greens during the final round of the regular season. Burgett scored two birdies as he hit a wedge to 10 feet on the par-4, 1st, and a 7-iron to five feet on No. 6.
 
Dallas Hill (78-79-77=234), also playing as an individual, hit seven fairways, seven green and needed just 26 putts. Hill sank a 25 foot putt on the par-4, 10th, to save bogey after hitting out of bounds off the tee box. The senior followed up on the par-4, 11th, as he hit a 3 wood off the box to the middle of the fairway. Hill used an 8-iron to find the green on his second shot setting up a 20-footer for birdie.
 
The Tigers will travel to Muscle Shoals, Ala. for the Ohio Valley Conference Championships. The three day event will begin on Friday, April 24.
