Sigg, Healy pace UGA to regional lead

  Georgia’s Greyson Sigg is tied for the individual lead with teammate Zach Healy at -4.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- With tournament leaders Zach Healy and Greyson Sigg setting the tone, No. 3-ranked Georgia opened in first place on Monday in the NCAA Tuscaloosa Regional at Ol’ Colony Golf Complex.

Seeded first in the Regional, the Bulldogs fired a 4-under 284 on the par-72, 7,514-yard layout on Monday. Georgia is three strokes clear of South Carolina, four ahead of Kentucky, six better than UNLV and eight away from Alabama. The top five schools at the conclusion of the regional on Wednesday will advance to the NCAA Championships May 27-June 1 in Eugene, Ore.

Sigg, a junior, and Healy, a sophomore, ended the day at 4-under 68 to sit atop the leaderboard with Colorado’s Jeremy Paul. Sigg has two individual wins and Healy also was a medalist earlier this season.  Sigg and Healy each signed for six birdies and two bogeys. Sigg, Healy and Paul are one shot ahead of Auburn’s Michael Johnson.

The Bulldogs also registered a 1-over 73 from senior Sepp Straka and a 3-over 75 from senior Lee McCoy. Freshman Tye Waller had Georgia’s non-counting score of 7-over 79.

“I felt like the key to today was the way we battled,” Georgia coach Chris Haack said. “Anytime we ran into some issues, we fought our way past them. We did not let anything linger. I was proud of the way the guys performed. We’re looking forward to the next couple of days.”
