PENHOOK, Va. - Behind individual champion Corey Brigham, the Terrapin men's golf team stormed from behind today to shoot a two-over-par 290 and claim the 2002 Liberty Spring Classic championship at The Water's Edge Country Club. The Terps, who entered the day six shots behind first-round leader Longwood College, cruised to their first title of the spring season by nine shots over second-place St. John's and 11 shots over third-place Longwood.

Brigham, who matched his career-best with a final-round, six-under-par 66, led the Terps to their first team title since the Oct. 5-6, 2001 Temple Invitational. The Rumson, N.J. native improved 10 shots on his first round 76 to claim his second career victory with a two-under-par total of 142. Brigham's other career title came nearly one year ago at the Wofford Invitational, where the Terps will begin play Friday.

Competing individually, senior Phillip Fenstermaker (Rockville, Md.) claimed second place with a 147 total. Fenstermaker matched his career-best score with a final-round 71, the field's fourth-lowest score in the final 18 holes. Freshman Bobby MacWhinnie (Pittsburgh, Pa.), who tied for the first-round lead at 73, recorded a final-round 76 and tied for fifth. MacWhinnie has back-to-back top-five finishes for the first time in his career.

Among the Terps' other scores, junior John Moheyer (Lima, Ohio), who shot 77-78-155, tied for 30th with sophomore Tim Kane (Simsbury, Conn.), who shaved seven strokes off his first-round 81 with a final-round 74. Senior Pete Toole (Lancaster, Pa.), who shot an 82 in Monday's windy conditions, also recovered nicely with a final-round 74 and tied for 37th.

The Terps return to action Friday for the first two rounds of the 54-hole Wofford Invitational at Carolina Country Club in Spartanburg, S.C.
