The Yellow Jackets won their own U.S. Collegiate Championship thanks to some final-hole heroics from Ollie Schniederjans. The sophomore hit a cut, 5-iron shot from 220 yards at the par-5 closing hole to within 3 feet, sank the downhill putt for eagle, and enabled the Yellow Jackets to complete an amazing comeback and win the title by a single shot over defending champion UCLA. “I’ve hit some pretty clutch shots in the past, but with the team pressure, playing in the last group of the day, with all those fans out there in the skyboxes around the green, that shot was as good as it gets,” Schniederjans said readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
