Yates leads A&M at Sea Best

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Junior Greg Yates shared individual medalist honors and No. 5 Texas A&M recorded a third-place finish Tuesday as play concluded at the Sea Best Invitational on the Players Stadium Course-TPC Sawgrass.

“I’m really excited for Greg to come in with the victory,” Texas A&M head coach J.T. Higgins said. “To earn a win on this course you really have to be playing tremendous golf. We had some nice individual finishes today as [Ben] Crancer, [Andrew] Lister and [Johannes] Veerman all played really well.”

Yates (75-70-71=216, E) shared the top position on the leaderboard with Austin Padova of North Florida (72-70-74=216, E) to claim his second career victory and first since the HBU Men’s Intercollegiate in October of 2011.

As a team, the Aggies (306-295-299=900, +36) finished in third place behind North Florida and Liberty, which shared the team title at 22-over par. The placing is the fourth top-three finish for the Aggies in five tournaments this season.

Rounding out the top six teams on the leaderboard at the event were Tennessee, South Carolina-Upstate and Florida.
