COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – The fall season finale has already arrived for the Tennessee Tech men's golf team, which will close out the first half of the 2019-20 campaign with a trip to Kennesaw, Ga. for the Pinetree Intercollegiate starting Monday, Oct. 21.
PINETREE INTERCOLLEGIATE: Oct. 21-22, 2019 – 54 holes (36 Monday, 18 Tuesday), located at the par-72, 7,108-yard Pinetree Country Club in Kennesaw, Ga. Teams will kick off with tee times beginning at 7:00 a.m. CT on Monday and Tuesday.
THE COMPETITION: The 11-team field consists of host Kennesaw State, as well as, Austin Peay, Belmont, Jacksonville State, Loyola Chicago, Mercer, Tennessee Tech, Toledo, Troy, Western Carolina and Western Kentucky.
THOUGHTS FROM ASSISTANT COACH AMANDA SMITH: "It's hard to believe the final event of the fall is already here. It has been several years since we have played Kennesaw State's event, but we are looking forward to going back to such a great tournament. The venue is outstanding and the field looks strong with several OVC teams making the trip. The guys are ready to get down there and finish out the semester on a solid note."
WHAT TO WATCH FOR: The Golden Eagles haven't competed in the Pinetree Intercollegiate since 2015-16, with none of the participating players still on the Tech roster. This year's lineup will get its first taste of Pinetree Country Club to wrap up the fall season, looking to close out the semester with a top-five finish.
