From UNCW

SALEM, South Carolina – UNCW junior Patrick Cover carded a career-low 65 in the third and final round to rally and win the Clemson Invitational on Sunday at The Cliffs at Keowee Falls. Cover began the day tied for 16th before making his magical run to the top.

"Today was an amazing performance by Patrick," said UNCW Head Coach Matt Clark. "It was one of the best rounds that I've had the privilege of coaching. His wedge game was very impressive today."

Cover, who won his second collegiate tournament, played the front nine three-under which was highlighted by an eagle on hole eight, a par-four that measured 383 yards. He drove the hole and then converted a five-foot putt for eagle. He continued his strong play with four birdies on the back nine and finished with six on the round.

"Coach Clark and I did a great job of staying in the moment all day," said Cover. "We took it one shot at a time and I was able to hit a lot of good shots today."

Cover won the tournament by two strokes over Clemson's Carson Young, who was one of six national top-100 players who Cover finished ahead of.

Clemson won its own tournament, topping runner up Georgia Tech by 15 strokes. Alabama, SMU and College of Charleston rounded out the top five. UNCW finished sixth, three strokes behind CofC.

The Seahawks will have a short turnaround when they compete in the Wolfpack Spring Open on Mar. 14-15.

UNCW Results: 1. Patrick Cover 76-70-65=211; T11. Thomas Eldridge 74-71-73=218; T45. Thomas Lilly 80-76-75=231; 48. Preston Harrington 79-75-79=233; T53. Reese McFarlane 80-81-75=236
