Gulf Coast’s Hickam, Motter Finish Second At Nationals
Release Date: 5/23/2015
Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College

SCOTTSBORO, Ala. – Mississippi Gulf Coast’s Phillip Hickam and Grant Motter finished tied for second in the NJCAA Division II Golf Tournament, which wrapped up Friday at Goose Pond Colony’s Lake Course.

The duo powered the Bulldogs to their second consecutive third-place finish in the tournament after a strong four days.

“There’s 100 teams that start out the beginning of the year, and to finish third? It’s special,” Gulf Coast coach Tommy Snell said. “I’m proud of ‘em. I’m really proud of ‘em.”

South Mountain, from Phoenix, Ariz., won the team title, and the Cougar’s Connor Klein was medalist at 12-under, with three birdies on the final four holes. Hickam and Motter finished 8-under.

South Mountain shot 30-under, followed by Tyler (Texas) at 15-under. Gulf Coast finished even.

Hickam was trying to finish at the top of the leaderboard for all four rounds. He started the day at 11-under, and made the turn at that same number.

The lead started slipping away when he caught a bad break and had to chip sideways from behind a tree on No. 11, leading to double-bogey. He bogeyed the next hole to drop to 3-over for the day and battled his way back to the clubhouse.

“To lead a tournament wire-to-wire, not many people do that,” Snell said. “He hung in there and got a couple of bad breaks on the back nine. He got up and down out of the bunker on 15 for birdie. He really showed champion heart. I’m really proud of him.”

Motter charged up the leaderboard with a 3-under 69 Friday. He four birdies on the first 10 holes.

“Grant played as well as Grant always plays,” Snell said. “To finish second in this tournament individually is strong.”

Conner Entriken shot 74 to finish 10-over, tied for 52 with five others, including George Kawell. Kawell shot a final-round 78.

Danny De Los Santos finished 20-over in 85th place.
