WASHINGTON - Georgetown University's men's golf program travels to Morganton, N.C. for the Don Ross Invitational at the Mimosa Hills Golf Club. The tournament runs from Monday, October 15 through Tuesday, October 16. It will be the fourth tournament of the fall for the Hoyas.
"This weekend we will be competing in The Donald Ross Invitational hosted by Appalachian State University at the scenic Mimosa Hills Golf Club in Morganton, N.C. This is the first time we have competed in this event and we are excited about the challenge. Once again, we will face a very talented field led by Richmond, James Madison, Elon, Tennessee State and Appalachian State - teams that can certainly produce strong numbers. We have had a full week of solid practice and we are anxious to keep the momentum going from our last event," states Head Golf Coach Tommy Hunter.
Two weeks ago Georgetown had its best finish of the fall, placing ninth out of 15, at the Cobra PUMA Invitational. Georgetown shot a three round total of 882 (+18). The Hoyas were led by Greg Podufal (Erie, Pa./Cathedral Prep) who tied a career low for 54 holes shooting a 215 (72-70-73).
Playing for Georgetown at the Don Ross Invitational will be Podufal, Justin Edwards (Westlake Village, Calif./Westlake Village), Raleigh Chapin (Doylestown, Pa./New Hope Solebury), Brad Cadigan (South Weymouth, Mass./Boston College HS) and Ed McCrossen (Philadelphia, Pa./Chestnut Hill Academy).
Podufal has had the best fall so far for Georgetown. In his eight rounds Podufal on average has been 5.63 strokes off the leader.
Edwards had his best outing at the Golfweek Program Challenge finishing tied for 34th (222 +6). Chapin meanwhile is the only Hoya whose every round has counted toward the Hoyas' scoring total (5-for-5). This will be Cadigan and McCrossen's first tournament action of the fall.
