WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's golf team hosts its annual fall tournament starting on Monday, October 22. The 28th annual Georgetown Intercollegiate will be played at The Members Club at Four Streams in Beallsville, Md.
The tournament will pit the Hoyas against 11 other teams, including defending champion West Florida. Also competing this year will be DePaul, Eastern Michigan, Miami of Ohio, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Penn State, St. Joseph's, Toledo, Xavier and William and Mary.
"This will be the strongest field that has ever played at the Georgetown Intercollegiate. It will be a great event and we will have to play our best to finish high," states Head Coach Tommy Hunter.
On Monday, October 22, 36 holes will be played with an 8 a.m. shotgun start. The final round will be played on Tuesday, October 23. The Members Club at Four Streams is 6,640 yards, and par-71.
In last season's tournament West Florida and Michigan State ended up tied with 878 strokes. After having identical scores after the playoff round the coaches agreed to an alternate playoff system, which favored West Florida. The top individual was Campbell's Vauta Guillaume who shot a seven-under par 206.
Georgetown had three golfers finish in the top 11 of the 2011 Georgetown Intercollegiate, including current sophomore Greg Podufal (Erie, Pa./Catholic Prep), who tied for 11th.
Podufal has had a strong fall season, including tying a career low for 54 holes with a 215 at the Cobra PUMA Invitational. The Cobra PUMA Invitational was GU's best finish as a team this fall, finishing ninth.
