Ollie Schniederjans and Seth Reeves led Georgia Tech to a convincing victory at the Robert Kepler Invitational Sunday.
The Yellow Jackets beat out runner-up Alabama-Birmingham by 18 strokes at the 7,455-yard, par-71 Scarlet Course at the Ohio State University Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. The Yellow Jackets closed the event at 6-over-par 858.
Schniederjans shared medalist honors with Ohio State's Frederik Hammer, and Reeves finished in third place.
Schniederjans, who picked up his fourth win of the year, started the final day in a tie for ninth, but fired four birdies in his final seven holes to finish the round at 4-under 67 and in a tie for first. He played the stretch of holes 12-16 at 3 over in his second round, but responded by going 4 under over that stretch on Sunday. Hammer and Schniederjans finished at 3-under 210.
UAB (24 over), Liberty (25 over), UNLV (27 over) and Ohio State (30 over) rounded out the top five.
The win was the fourth of the season for the Yellow Jackets and their second in a row.
