             STELLENBOSCH, South Africa (Oct. 29, 2006) - ETSU senior and two-time, first-team All-American Rhys Davies (Bridgend, Wales) fired his second-straight sub-par round with a 1-under 71 Sunday in the final round of the World Amateur Team Championships at the Stellenbosch Golf Club.

 

            Davies - who posted an impressive 8-under-par 64 on Saturday - finished tied for 16th on the individual leaderboard at 4-under for the event. Meanwhile, he helped his Welsh team to a fourth place finish, five strokes back of team champion the Netherlands which finished at 22-under. Wil Besseling made it a sweep for the Netherlands, taking the individual championship with a final score of 13-under 275.

 

            Along with Davies, ETSU junior Gareth Shaw (Lisburn, Northern Ireland) helped the Irish to a tie for ninth on the team leaderboard at 12-under. Individually, Shaw posted a final round score of 1-over-par 73 to tie for 39th and end the championship at even par.
