Golf Prepares for Shoal Creek Intercollegiate
The event will take place at the Shoal Creek Country Club, hosted by UAB. At last year’s Shoal Creek, the Eagles placed ninth in the 12-team field shooting 891. This year head coach Larry Mays has seen his squad get off to a 27-5 start against teams through two tournaments.
“This is a great golf course... it has been host to the U.S. Amateur, U.S. Juniors and the PGA Championship. There are 12 teams in the field and not a bad one in the bunch,” said Mays. “We had a good practice today and we are looking forward to teeing it up tomorrow and keep on playing well.”
Last weekend the Eagles ran away with the Raines Development Group title. GS finished shooting a program- and tournament-record 22-under par 842 (279-279-284) in the 18-team field.
Mays also stated he is staying with the same lineup. Senior Jordan Johnstun (Evans/LaGrange) leads the way averaging 70.4 strokes in five rounds. He finished third last week at the Raines.
