Georgia shot a final-round 280 to post a 14-shot victory over in-state rival Georgia Tech at the Brickyard Collegiate Championship in Macon, Ga.

The Bulldogs, which entered the event at No. 5 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, finished at 16-under 848. Georgia Tech, coming off a co-victory with No. 1 Cal at the Ping-Golfweek Preview, finished at 2 under.

Georgia State’s Jonathan Grey (72-67-69) and Georgia’s Sam Straka (75-69-64) shot 8-under 208 to share the individual title. Straka was playing as an individual. Georgia’s Nicholas Reach shot a final-round 69 to finish one shot back, while Georgia freshman Lee McCoy finished at 6 under par after a final-round 68.

North Florida finished third in the team standings with a 1-over 865 total. Chattanooga, which was playing without U.S. Amateur champion Steven Fox, shot the final round’s low score, an 11-under 277, to tie Virginia Tech for fourth. Fox was at the World Amateur Team Championship, where he partnered with Chris Williams and Justin Thomas to win the team title.

Georgia began its season with a runner-up at the Carpet Capital, then an eighth-place finish at the Ping-Golfweek Preview.
