Former Bulldog Swafford wins in Athens
Athens, GA (Sports Network) - Former Georgia golfer Hudson Swafford fired a nine-under 62 on Sunday at the Stadion Classic at UGA, but came away with the victory only after Luke List bogeyed his final hole.
Swafford's course-record round sent him into the clubhouse at 17-under par, a score that List matched with a birdie at the 17th hole. But List, last week's winner at the South Georgia Classic, bogeyed his last to fall out of the tie for first.
The error allowed Swafford, a rookie, to claim his first Nationwide Tour victory.
List and two-time U.S. Open champion Lee Janzen, who both fired six-under 65s, shared second at 16-under 268. Billy Horschel (68) was fourth at minus-15.
Third-round leader Tyrone van Aswegen (70) struggled to make birdies and fell to fifth at 14-under.
