Joiner wins first collegiate tourney for GA Tech

Rocky Face, GA - The 27th Carpet Capital Collegiate took place this weekend, and a Leesburg native closed his final round today to win his first collegiate tournament.

19-year-old Jacob Joiner won it for the Georgia tech Yellow Jackets at The Farm Golf Club in Rocky Face, Ga.

He shot an even-par 72 today, and his 6-under-par round on Friday, when he boasted a score of 66, is what put him in great position.

It was just the sixth collegiate tournament he played in.
