COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Tech men's golf team will make its way to a familiar location Monday, Oct. 16, playing in the two-day F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate at Greystone Golf Club in Dickson, Tenn. hosted by in-state and Ohio Valley Conference rival Austin Peay.
F&M BANK APSU INTERCOLLEGIATE: Oct. 16-17, 2017 – 54 holes (36 Monday, 18 Tuesday), located at the par-72, 7,000-yard Greystone Golf Club in Dickson, Tenn. Teams will kick off with an 8 a.m. CT shotgun start on Monday and a 9 a.m. shotgun start on Tuesday.
THE COMPETITION: The 11-team field consists of host Austin Peay, as well as Belmont, Binghamton, Eastern Illinois, Mercer, Missouri State, Murray State, Samford, Tennessee State, Tennessee Tech, and UT Martin.
THOUGHTS FROM COACH BROWN: "We are honored and thrilled to be able to return to Austin Peay's event yet again. Our guys have experience and knowledge of Greystone, having played there in the past. They have been hard at work these past couple of weeks in practice and I'm excited to see how they apply what they've been working on to competition."
WHAT TO WATCH FOR: The Golden Eagles return to Austin Peay's fall event for the ninth time in the past 10 years (2015-16 marked the only year Tech did not attend the tournament). Last season, Tech fought back from a seventh-place ranking through two rounds to finish in a tie for fourth place, with senior Alexander Riddle pacing the squad with a 73-79-73=225 overall. Four Golden Eagles finished in the top 25 in the event.
