Georgetown Men's Golf Moves Up to No. 4 in Mid-Atlantic District Rankings

Jan. 12, 2007

Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University men's golf team moved up to No. 4 in the Mid-Atlantic District Rankings after the fall season in regional rankings determined by Golfweek Magazine.

The Hoyas are slated fourth in the Mid-Atlantic District behind Penn State, Maryland and William & Mary, with Loyola College rounding out the top-five teams.

Georgetown enjoyed a solid fall season and the expectations are high as the team begins play for the spring season and aims toward the BIG EAST Championship. The Hoyas posted three top-10 finishes during the fall season, including a pair in the final two tournaments of the season. Highlighting the season was a tie for second place at the Big 5 Invitational in Philadelphia in the penultimate event of the campaign and a win at the Hoya Invitational.

Sophomore Tim Hager (Ivyland, Pa.) led the team in stroke average during the fall, posting a 74.54 average in 13 rounds. He had three top-20 finishes and two top-10 showings. His best finish came at the Hoya Invitational, when he placed fifth. Hager hit a three-foot putt for par on the 18th hole of the final round to seal the win, giving him a two-round score of six over par 148. The sophomore also carded an eight-over par 150 and tied for seventh place to lead Georgetown to a second place finish at the Big 5 Invitational.

Senior co-captains Matt Busa (Cleveland, Ohio/St. Ignatius) and Tim Moynihan (Murrysville, Pa./Franklin Regional) were second and third on the team in stroke average, respectively.

Busa, a 2006 Golf Coaches Association of America All-Scholar selection, posted a 75.00 average in 13 rounds. His best finish was a tie for seventh place at The Adams Cup of Newport, where he shot a four-over par 220 to lead Georgetown to a fifth place finish in the 12-team field.

Moynihan, meanwhile, was third on the squad during the fall with a 75.54 stroke average. He came on strong late in the season, tying for 10th place at the Big 5 Invitational (nine-over par 151) and tying for 15th place at the Hoya Invitational (nine-over par 151).

Head Coach Tommy Hunter, in his 23rd year at the helm, also had strong contributions from freshman Donald Thomas (Murrysville, Pa./Franklin Regional) and sophomore Patrick Sherry (Brookeville, Md.). Thomas tied for 11th place at the Hoya Invitational with an eight-over par 150. He posted a 76.18 average in 11 rounds in his first season on the Hilltop. Sherry, who had a 77.60 stroke average in 10 rounds during the fall, shot a final round one-over par 72 at the Hoya Invitational to help propel the Hoyas to the team title.

Georgetown's spring season starts on March 26, when the team plays at the William & Mary Invitational.
