STOCKBRIDGE, Ga.-- Tennessee finished 11th at the Atlanta Intercollegiate Golf Tournament at Eagles Landing Country Club just outside of Atlanta. The Vols fired a four-over-par 292 in Friday's final round, but was unable to make up much ground after a slow start in Thursday's first two rounds (300-304) that saw them start the day in 12th-place.

McGowan had a scorecard of 77-72-66--215 to record his highest finish as a Vol. Senior Jimmy White finished with a 72-78-75--225 for a 34th-t place finish.

The 10th-ranked Auburn Tigers won the tournament with a scorecard of 293-282-281--856 (8-under par). Fourth-ranked Florida finished second with a 292-289-280--861. No. 12 Georgia (864), North Florida (871) and Kentucky (879) rounded out the top five teams in the tournament.
