Senior captain Curtis Loop leads the Hoyas into the Golfweek Program Challenge.

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University's men's golf program opens its 2012-13 season in Myrtle Beach, S.C. at the 12 team Golfweek Program Challenge. The Hoyas begin the three day tournament on Sunday, September 9, at True Blue Golf Course in Pawley's Island and finish up on Tuesday, September 11.

The Golfweek Program Challenge features 12 men's and women's programs competing on two different courses in Myrtle Beach. While the men compete at True Blue the Georgetown women's team will compete at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club. Team scores will be combined at the end to determine the program champion. The other teams participating in the challenge are Western Carolina, Boston College, Campbell, Jacksonville State, Northern Iowa, UMKC, Stetson, Troy, James Madison, Central Arkansas and Austin Peay.

Head Coach Tommy Hunter, in his 25th season at Georgetown, is excited to get the season started, "Golfweek put on a wonderful tournament last season and we look forward to competing in it this year. It is a great way to start the season."

The Hoyas will be led by newly named senior captains Justin Edwards (Westlake Village, Calif./Westlake Village) and Curtis Loop (New Canaan, Conn./New Canaan). Edwards played 11 rounds for the Hoyas last season and finished with a 77.18 stroke average. Loop participated in six competitions in 2011-12 and averaged 74.11 strokes per round.

Joining Edwards and Loop in the Hoya contingent will be junior Charlie vonArentschildt (Scottsdale, Ariz./Deerfield Academy) and sophomores Greg Podufal (Erie, Pa./Cathedral Prep) and Brian Tohir (New Canaan, Conn./New Canaan). VonArentshildt was in four events for Georgetown last season and tied for second place overall at the Princeton Invitational with a three round score of 209.
