GREENVILLE, S.C. --- Junior Harold Varner posted a final round two-under par 70 to claim second-place and help the East Carolina men's golf team to a fourth-place finish at the 42nd Annual Furman Intercollegiate on Sunday.
Varner carded a two-under for the second-straight round to finish nine-under par 207 (67-70-70), one stroke behind medalist William Sjaichudin of Purdue. Varner carded birdies on five holes Sunday, but three bogeys gave Sjaichudin the edge.
