Sunday, November 07, 2004
Firing a final round score of 73 on Sunday and finishing at 1-over-par for the event, Davies bested second-place finisher Luke List of Vanderbilt by one stroke to capture individual medalist honors in the Carpet Capital Collegiate at the Farm Golf Club. Davies' efforts also bolstered a strong final round for the Buccaneers, who posted a 292 on Sunday and picked up their third-straight Top 5 finish.
"Every tournament this fall I've been in contention and it's nice to finally break through," said Davies, who recently finished 25th in the World Amateur Championships. "Obviously, this is a great achievement, but I'm really more pleased with my consistency all year so far. I just want to keep that up in the spring."

"Because of the strength of this field, it's got to be pretty close to what Keith Nolan accomplished in 1997," said Warren, who pointed out that 14 of the 18 teams in the event were ranked in the Top 30 nationally and that 17 preseason All-Americans were in the field. "Rhys just played a very good, solid round. The course was playing very tough and even-par was a great score today."
Davies was not the only Buccaneer to come through on the final day.
Coming into Sunday's final round in eighth place on the team leaderboard, the Bucs got sterling even-par scores from both senior Cennydd Mills (
