Cameron Tringale was close behind, firing a 3rd round 66 and earning $10,000 towards his alma mater’s golf team, Georgia Tech. School pride and colors were visible throughout Torrey Pines, both inside and outside the ropes.

The overwhelming number of players who participated received a $500 donation to their school’s golf team and over 1,000 spirited fans received a University branded gift courtesy of Farmers.
