JACKSON, Tenn. --- John Tyminski carded a 1-under, 71, during the final round of the Grover Page Classic to place in a tie for fifth. The sophomore jumped four spots on the final day to force a scorecard playoff to determine the final spot on the all-tournament team. Tyminski earned the nod and was named to the five man honor squad.
Tyminski (72-75-71=218) finished the 54-hole event with 36 pars, which was third most of all golfers. The Brentwood, Tenn. product collected eight birdies to help break a four-way tie. Tyminski’s performance helped Tennessee State to a fourth place finish in the team competition.
The Tigers (301-300-299=900) stayed ahead of New Orleans (902), but fell short of catching Ohio Valley Conference rivals UT Martin (887) and Tennessee Tech (888). Delta State claimed the team title with a 15-Over, 879.
Scotty Hudson (75), Jermey Fultz (76) and Drew Owens (77) joined Tyminski in scoring for TSU in the final round. Rosario Falzone posted a non-scoring 77, despite matching Owens on Tuesday.
