ALPHARETTA, Ga. – The Alabama men's golf team shot 3-over-par 283 in the final round of the 2012 PING/Golfweek Preview at the par-70, 7,248-yard Crabapple Course at the Capital City Club on Tuesday to finish tied for ninth place.  

The Crimson Tide finished at 21-over-par 861, tied with San Diego State. Host Georgia Tech and California tied for first at 5-over-par 845 with Texas and UNLV tied for third at 13-over 853. UCLA and Washington finished tied for fifth at 854.  

"If we are going to be a great team, we need to be ready to play every week," Alabama head coach Jay Seawell said. "We got a chance to preview the golf course that NCAAs will be played on and that will help us. It is a very difficult course and we just weren't playing well enough to perform to our standard." 

Senior Scott Strohmeyer led Alabama with a tie for 12th individually at 2-over-par 212. He shot 1-under 69 in the final round to pace the Crimson Tide. Strohmeyer got to 2-under par on two different occasions during his round. He made five birdies and four bogeys in round three. 

"He really turned in a solid performance for us," Seawell said. "Crabapple is a big golf course that his length is a huge advantage. He had a chance to win the whole golf tournament, and I think he will look back a couple of decisions that maybe kept him from winning, and learn from them."  

Junior Cory Whitsett shot his best round of the tournament with an even-par 70 in the final round to finish tied for 43rd at 9-over 219. Bobby Wyatt tied for 35th at 7-over 217 after a 2-over 72 on Tuesday.   

Sophomore Justin Thomas finished tied for 26th after a 3-over 73 on Tuesday that did not count toward the Tide's round-three score. Senior Lee Knox tied for 54th after a 2-over 72 on Tuesday.  

Alabama is off until Oct. 15-16 when they play host to the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate at the Old Overton Golf Club in Vestavia Hills, Ala.
