After a long battle for first place against Georgia, TCU men’s golf won the 18-team Wexford Plantation Intercollegiate Tuesday in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

The Frogs ended the first round in first place after shooting one–under 287. They shot an improved 7 –under 281 in the second round, but Georgia shot 11-under 277 to end round two in first place and one stroke ahead of the Frogs.

The Frogs shot 11-under 853 to finish one shot ahead of Georgia (-10), earning their first tournament of the season.

Junior David Ravetto shot five-under 139 over two rounds and was tied for second. Ravetto tied for his career-low by shooting five-under 67 in the second round and ended the tournament tied for fifth at a three-under 213.

Junior Stefano Mazzoli ended the tournament as an individual champion and with a new course record of 65. The win was the second of his TCU career. Mazzoli also won the USF Olympic Invitational on Sept. 13, 2016, as a sophomore.

Mazzoli began the first round of the tournament tied for ninth and shot five-under 31 on the back nine, including an eagle on the 11th hole, a par-five hole. Mazzoli finished two strokes ahead of Davis Thompson (-8) of Georgia to end the tournament.

The score put Mazzoli’s name in the TCU record books with former All-American Julian Brun. Only Brun has recorded more rounds of 7-under par in a career than Mazzoli. Brun did this five times over the course of his four-year golf career at TCU from 2012-15.

Junior Turner MacLean shot 7-over 233 for the tournament with a tie for 25th. Junior Triston Fisher shot 8-over 224 with a tie for 29th.

The Horned Frogs will be back in action Monday, March 5 as they head to Las Vegas, Nevada, for the Southern Highlands Collegiate three-day tournament.
