Mullinax finishes strong with 'Bama coach on bag


ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. – Trey Mullinax finished his week at the RSM Classic with a 22-footer for birdie at the 18th hole and his caddie, University of Alabama golf coach Jay Seawell, broke into celebration.

“I told him I was going to do it,” said Seawell, who simulated the “air guitar” celebration used by Michigan State kicker Michael Geiger after the Spartans beat Ohio State on Saturday.

Mullinax was tied for 25th when he finished Sunday, following a closing 69 for his best Tour finish in a young professional career, but the solid week wasn’t going to lure Seawell into considering a new career.

Seawell, who coached Mullinax at Alabama, said following the round he has no interest in trading his coaching duties for a caddie job.

“I quit,” he smiled. “Gave him the papers coming up 18.”
