Aug. 5, 2013
CINCINNATI – A challenging slate of tournaments on an array of courses outline the 2013-14 University of Cincinnati men’ golf schedule announced Monday by head coach Doug Martin.
“We’ve got an outstanding schedule this year,” Martin said. “Our fall season is played against teams mostly from our region on a variety of courses – all on bent grass. The spring schedule is very strong will most tournaments being played on Bermuda to help us prepare for our conference championship.”
The fall season includes five tournaments beginning at the Marshall Invitational, Sept. 9-10 in Huntington, W.Va. UC will compete in the Cardinal Intercollegiate (Sept. 23-24 in Simpsonville, Ky.) and the Cleveland State Invitational (Sept. 30-Oct. 1 in Cleveland, Ohio) before playing host to the annual Bearcat Invitational at Traditions Golf Club, Oct. 7-8 in Hebron, Ky.
“The Bearcat Invitational always has a Midwest flavor,” Martin said of the 15-team field. “Austin Peay returns as the tournament’s defending champion and NCAA Championship qualifier last year.”
The Bearcats conclude the fall campaign participating in the Temple Intercollegiate, Oct. 12-13 in Philadelphia, Pa.
The seven-tournament spring schedule covers seven states beginning in Texas at the Rice Intercollegiate, Feb. 17-18 in Houston. The Bearcats play three tournaments in March with visits to the USF Invitational (March 2-4 in Dade City, Fla.); the Earl Yestingmeier Invitational (March 16-17 in Muncie, Ind.); and the Memphis Intercollegiate (March 31-Apr. 1 in Cordova, Tenn.).
UC sophomore Emerson Newsome (Hoschton, Ga./Mill Creek) looks to defend his individual title when the Bearcats compete in the Old Waverly Collegiate Championship, April 7-8 in West Point, Miss. Newsome won the 2013 event by one stroke, carding a career-best 6-under par 67-71-72=210.
The Bearcats travel to Lexington, Ky., for the Bluegrass Invitational April 12-13 before concluding the spring season at the inaugural American Athletic Conference Championship, April 27-29 in Charleston, S.C.
“We have returning players this season who have done some nice things this summer and added an incoming class with a lot of championship experience at both the high school and junior college level,” Martin said. “The team is excited to start the new season.”
