April 10, 2014
WASHINGTON - GW golf heads to White Sulphur Springs, W.Va., for the Greenbrier Collegiate Invitational on April 14-15 for its final tournament before the 2014 Atlantic 10 Championship.
GW will be part of a seven-team field consisting of dual hosts Bowling Green and Marshall along with Loyola University Chicago, Old Dominion, St. Bonaventure and William & Mary. The Colonials will send senior Benton Kircher, junior Jack Persons, sophomore Michael Helton and freshmen Lucas Farmer and Michael Heda to compete as a team, while sophomore Carlos Pena will play as an individual.
The 54-hole event, with 36 holes on Monday and the final 18 on Tuesday, will be played on the par-70, 6,900-yard Old White TPC at the Greenbrier, the same course that will host the PGA Tour's Greenbrier Classic over July 4th weekend.
GW is coming off its best finish of the season with a tie for sixth out of 22 teams at the Whiting-Turner Towson Invitational on April 1. Persons and Heda both finished strong in the event's final round to post their team-best second top-20 finishes of the season.
After completing the Greenbrier, the Colonials will have just under two weeks to prepare for the 2014 A-10 Championship at the TPC Tampa Bay in Lutz, Fla., April 25-27.
GW will host an Alumni Reception and Clinic at TPC Tampa Bay from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, April 24, the day before the Colonials begin the A-10 Championship. Click here for additional event details.
