Trent Phillips shot a final round even par 70 to share medalist honors in the Gator Invitational played at the Mark Bostwick course in Gainesville, Florida.

The Bulldog golfer from Inman was a shot off the lead after carding an opening round 6-under par 64 on the 6,700 yard par 70 course.

Phillips took the lead in the second round before play was suspended. When the round resumed on Saturday morning the Bulldog All-American took the lead by posting a 5-under par 65.

The tournament schedule was pushed forward to complete the second round and play the final round on Saturday to beat expected bad weather.

Auburn’s Andrew Krozen was able to catch Phillips in the final round by shooting a 5-under par 65.

Both golfers finished the 36 hole event at 11-under par.

South Carolina’s Ryan Hall matched Kozen’s 65 for the second best final round.

The Gamecock junior birdied two of his final three holes and used his 5-under par score to move into 3rd place, one shot behind the medalists.

Florida won the team title with 3rd ranked Georgia and Auburn finishing in a second place tie.
