Camels finish 4th, Guillaume 2nd, at Charleston Shootout

HOLLYWOOD, S.C. - Vaita Guillaume finished as the individual runner-up and Campbell placed fourth in the team standings after Tuesday's final round of the Charleston Shootout at the Links at Stono Ferry.

A junior from Papeete, Tahiti, Guillaume carded a three-over 75 Tuesday on the par-72, 6922-yard layout and finished one stroke behind Jacobo Pastor of Charleston Southern (68-72-69-209).

Guillaume shot 64-71-75-210 to finish at six-under par and was one of only four golfers in the 75-player event to complete the 54-hole tourney in red numbers.

Baylor won the event by 14 strokes, thanks in part to third- and fourth-place finishes by Jerry Ruiz (70-73-68-211) and Joakim Mikkelsen (71-70-73-214). The Bears shot 285-287-284-856 and finished eight-under as a team.

The College of Charleston (290-287-293-870) finished second at six-over. Radford was third (294-289-296-879), followed by Campbell (287-297-297-881) and Charleston Southern (290-296-300-886) in the 15-school event.

Campbell senior Zak Drescher fired the team's low round on Tuesday and tied for 16th in the individual standings at four-over-par 220 (76-73-71). Matt Moot tied for 20th (70-76-75-221), Mitch Gray tied for 50th (77-77-77-231) and Aman Singh tied for 57th (78-78-76-232).
