Georgia Bulldogs: Paul Claxton

ATHENS, Ga. -- If a Georgia player is to win the Nationwide Tour’s Stadion Classic at UGA, one of the three remaining Bulldogs will have to mount a charge from the exact same position in the final 18 holes.

Ex-Georgia players Hudson Swafford, Paul Claxton and Justin Bolli are all tied for 15th at 8 under after Saturday’s third round at the UGA Golf Course, trailing leader Tyrone Van Aswegen by five strokes.

That’s a sizable margin to overcome, but they hope their home-course knowledge might be worth a stroke or two in a potential comeback.

ATHENS, Ga. -- Hudson Swafford admits he glanced at the leaderboard before playing his final hole Friday, but said that was not the reason he double bogeyed to complete an otherwise solid second round at the Stadion Classic at UGA.

“There’s so much golf to be played, [the chance to tie for the lead] wasn’t really registering,” Swafford said. “I was just kind of looking to see what other guys were doing to be honest with you. I just had a kind of unfortunate finish.”

At 8 under through 17 holes, Swafford was a stroke behind then-leader Luke List before plugging his second shot on 18 in the greenside bunker. He chipped out and three-putted to finish with a 1-under 70 and head into the weekend in a tie for 13th at 6 under.
