Patrick Reed closed out Augusta State's second straight NCAA golf title Sunday, beating Georgia's Harris English 2 and 1 in the featured matchup between each team's top player.

Reed needed only a double bogey to halve the 17th hole and win the championship after English hit his second shot into a lake left of the green.

Reed, who played for the Bulldogs as a freshman, has helped turn Augusta State into a budding powerhouse, right in the shadows of Augusta National.

The Jaguars, who compete in Division II in all sports except golf, also got victories from Mitchell Krywulycz and Carter Newman to win the final match 3-2.

Russell Henley and Bryden MacPherson won their matches for Georgia, which was seeking its third NCAA title
