DADE CITY, Fla. – The University of Cincinnati men’s golf team plays in its first tournament of the spring season when it competes in the USF Invitational, March 4-6, at the Lake Jovita Golf and Country Club (par-72, 7,153 yards).

Along with Cincinnati, 16 teams will participate in the event: host South Florida, Arkansas State, DePaul, Eastern Michigan, Florida Atlantic, Florida State, Louisville, Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina, Central Florida, Marquette, Middle Tennessee, Troy, Villanova and Florida Gulf Coast.

Following the USF Invitational, the Bearcats will remain in the Sunshine State to compete in the Seminole Invitational hosted by Florida State, March 9-11.  

“As always, I am very excited about the start of a new season,” UC head coach Doug Martin said. “The opportunity to play in back-to back events in Florida will give our kids an opportunity to get back into the competitive mode. We have been very fortunate with the mild winter. It has allowed our kids to be much more prepared for the spring.”

The Bearcats will be represented at the USF Invitational by junior David Tepe, junior Andrew Desmarais, freshman Mike Wolf, freshman Jared Howard and junior Matt Ledom.

Following the fall season, Tepe lead the Bearcats with a 72.71 stroke average and finished first among UC golfers at all five tournaments.
