AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) - This past Tuesday, the Tigers defeated Georgia and Vanderbilt in the three-team playoff on the18th hole at the par-70 Old Overton Club and earned the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate title.

“Our guys were clutch, they hit some beautiful shots on the playoff hole. That’s a 500-yard par-4 and we're back there hitting driver, 4 irons and 5 irons," Auburn head coach Nick Clinard said.

Auburn finished the tournament with five golfers inside the top 30 and were at even par or better to close out the event. Auburn ended the tournament at 19-under (273-272-276--821), with seniors Graysen Huff and Jovan Rebula leading the Tigers with top-10 finishes. Huff capped his three-round tournament at 7-under (65-69-69--203) and tied for sixth, while Rebula was two shots back at 5-under (69-67-69--205) and tied for 10th.

Sophomore Alex Vogelsong finished 15th at 3-under (70-67-70--207) with four birdies in the third round. Vogelsong’s highlight of the day was when he attained an eagle on the 448-yard, par-4 13th hole.

J.M. Butler produced another top-20 finish, tying for 19th at 1-under (72-69-68--209). The freshman ended the tournament with four birdies and twelve pars.

Senior Wells Padgett tied for 29th overall at even par (69-70-71--210), rounding out the Auburn contingent.

With this victory, the Tigers end the fall season with having won a team title for the 12th consecutive season under the leadership of Clinard, extending the program record.

"It's been a work in progress, but I';m just really proud of the guys to come out here and compete in the best conference in the country and get a win," Clinard said. "They were very motivated to make a statement that they are one of the best teams in the country, and they came out and did it."
