EL PASO, Texas (Nov. 20, 2007) - Senior Gareth Shaw (Lisburn, Northern Ireland) fired his second straight round in the 60s, posting a 3-under-par 68 to wrap up a strong showing in the 33rd Western Refining College All-American Golf Classic Tuesday.

 

Shaw ended the event in sole possession of sixth place with a three-round tournament score of 7-under 206 (71-67-78), and was eight strokes off the pace of champion Webb Simpson of Wake Forest. The event, played at the Par 71, 6,837-yard El Paso Country Club, sports a 28-man field that is limited to the previous year's NCAA Division I All-Americans, and Division II and III champions. It's known as much for its hospitality as its who's-who list of past champions, including Tiger Woods, David Duval and Davis Love III.

 

Shaw bested 22 of the nation's best players, including No. 1-ranked Chesson Hadley of Georgia Tech, who finished tied for 16th.

 

"Finishing sixth in the best field in the country is something to be very proud of," said ETSU head coach Fred Warren. "Gareth's short game was really good this week and this is definitely a good way to finish the fall. He's already on a plane heading back to Johnson City and will be back in class tomorrow."
