Eagles Cap Fall Season in Hawaii
STATESBORO, Ga. – The same five golfers who won the last two tournaments Georgia Southern has competed in will travel to Kauai, Hawaii, for the Warrior Wave Invitational Nov. 5-7.
The three-round tournament will be played at the Makai Golf Club at the St. Regis Princeville Resort. It features a stacked field with seven teams in the top-100 in the country, according to Golfweek's College Rankings, including the 48th-ranked Eagles.
The tournament field also contains Baylor (49), Cal State Fullerton, East Tennessee State, Fresno State, Hawaii, Indiana (39), North Carolina State (93), Pepperdine, San Diego State (35), UAB, UC Irvine (100), San Diego (46), UC Santa Barbara and Xavier.
Scott Wolfes, ranked 19th in the country by Golfweek, will tee it up with Charlie Martin, Hayden Anderson, Will Evans (right) and Matt Mierzejewski for the Eagles.
The quintet is coming off back-to-back tournament victories at the AutoTrader Collegiate Classic and the Old Dominion/Outer Banks Intercollegiate. It's the first time the Eagles have done that since 1982.
"We are looking to finish off a good fall with another strong finish," said Georgia Southern coach Larry Mays. "This is a treat for the team to play out in Hawaii, and they are excited for the trip. We hope to have some fun and bring home another top finish."
Wolfes has won two tournaments this season and finished eighth in a third and his coming off a 9-under performance at the ODU/OBX Intercollegiate, his best as an Eagle. The sophomore won the tournament in a one-hole playoff and leads the team with a 70.92 scoring average.
