NEWPORT, R.I. - Junior Chris Gold fired a 1-under-par 71 in Wednesday's final round to claim the individual title at the Adams Cup of Newport men's golf tournament hosted by the University of Rhode Island.

Gold started the day tied for third place, but his 71 gave him a 54-hole total of 2-over-par 218. He won by two strokes over Zachariah Potter of Wichita State, Rocky Cleland of Southern Miss and Roberto Diaz of South Carolina-Aiken. Diaz closed with a 72 on Wednesday.

The Maryland junior transferred to College Park from Texas Tech and arrived on campus for the Spring 2007 season. Gold led the Terps in the final three events of the season, including the ACC Championship and the NCAA East Regional. This is his first medalist honor since becoming a Terp.

As a team, Maryland finished with a round of 305 and tied for third with a 902 total. Wichita State cruised to an 11-shot win in the team competition over Southern Miss, which shot 297 to move up the leaderboard into second. The Terrapins tied with the host Rams for third.

Also for Maryland, Andrew Kay and Donnie Shin each tied for 22nd with scores of 227, while Tom Hanna III was 49th at 236. Brendan Tracy finished with a 76 on Wednesday to tie for 53rd at 238.

Maryland plays next on Oct. 1 and 2 at the VCU/Mattaponi Springs Shootout.
