April 12, 2013

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University's men's golf team continues its spring season with a visit to Princeton, N.J. for the 27th annual Princeton Invitational. Springdale Golf Club will host the 54-hole event, which began in 1987. Last year the Hoyas lost by one stroke to champion Yale (858, +6). GU's Charlie vonArentschildt (Scottsdale, Ariz./Deerfield Academy) was also one stroke away from the individual title, won by Dartmouth's Peter Williamson (208, -5).

"This weekend we compete in the Princeton Invitational held at Springdale Golf Club," stated Head Coach Tommy Hunter. "This is an event we always look forward to, the golf course is outstanding and the field of teams is always very competitive. We are entering a very important part of the season as we begin to position ourselves for the BIG EAST Championship. A strong performance this weekend can certainly provide great momentum down the stretch. We are coming off a very gritty performance at the Villanova event and the guys are gaining confidence - which is always a good thing. "

Tee times start at 7:45 a.m. on Saturday, April 13, with 36 holes being played on the par-71 course measuring 6,390 yards. On Sunday, April 14, the teams will play 18 holes. Georgetown will compete with 13 other teams for the title. The 14 teams making up the field will be Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Georgetown, Harvard, Navy, Penn, Princeton, Rider, St. Joseph's, Seton Hall, Temple and Yale.

Two weeks ago the Hoyas finished in a tie for third place at the Wildcat Invitational hosted by Villanova after firing a combined 905 (299-303-303). Sophomore Greg Podufal (Erie, Pa./Cathedral Prep) helped lead the Hoyas by shooting a team best 218 (71-75-72). He ended the event tied for third overall, four strokes off the champion.

 

 

Competing for Georgetown at the Princeton Invitational will be Podufal, Justin Edwards (Westlake Village, Calif./Westlake Village), Raleigh Chapin (Doylestown, Pa./New Hope Solebury), Curtis Loop (New Canaan, Conn./New Canaan) and Brian Tohir (New Canaan, Conn./New Canaan).

Podufal has had a strong sophomore campaign and leads the Hoyas in scoring average (73.3) along with rounds counted (94.4%). He has played 18 rounds this year and averaged 4.28 strokes off the leader.

Senior captain Edwards has played 15 rounds and averages 76.3 strokes per round. His best three round total came in the first competition of the fall firing a 6-over par 222. Chapin has played 15 rounds with a 75.6 average. Loop and Tohir have both played 14 rounds and average 74.6 and 76.3 strokes per round, respectively.
