On Saturday, there are eight singles matches, while all 10 players from each side compete in singles on Sunday. One full point is awarded for each victory, while a half-point is earned for matches that are all square after 18 holes.

Fisk finished his career in Statesboro as NCAA runner-up Sun Belt Golfer of The Year twice, winning six tournaments and a school-record nine victories.
