The No. 1-ranked Emory golf team won its fourth straight and the program's 19th University Athletic Association Championship on Sunday afternoon, posting a 3-2 down-to-the wire victory over No. 15 Carnegie Mellon. The Championships were played at the 6,776-yard, par 72 Hammock Beach Resort Course in Palm Coast, Florida.
Using a match-play format, Emory posted a 3-2 decision over the Tartans. The match was deadlocked at 2-2 with Logan Ryan and Jay Milch heading to the 18th hole. After Ryan's tee shot, Milch hit a pair of drives out of play whereupon he conceded the hole, giving the Eagles the win.
