Sept. 13, 2013
WASHINGTON - The George Washington golf team plays its first event under new Head Coach Chuck Scheinost on Sept. 16 and 17 at the Adams Cup of Newport/Cleveland Golf Classic at the Newport National Golf Club.
Based on six rounds of qualifying through the opening two weeks of the fall semester, first-year Head Coach Chuck Scheinost will bring senior Graham Lawyer, juniors Jonathan Dresnick and Jack Persons, sophomore Michael Helton and freshman Lucas Farmer for the Colonials' five-man lineup.
"There's going to be some good competition, and it's a great event to get us started. We're really excited to get going," said Coach Scheinost.
The 2013 Adams Cup field includes 16 teams from nine different conferences, highlighted by three-time defending champion UCF, which is receiving votes in the preseason Golf World/Nike Golf Coaches poll. Division II No. 19 Rollins and NAIA No. 5 Johnson & Wales (Fla.) will also compete, as well as GW's Atlantic 10 Conference rivals Fordham, Saint Joseph's and host Rhode Island.
The Orchard Course at Newport National Golf Club is designed by legendary course architect Arthur Hills and is a par-72, 7,244-yard layout from its championship tees.
"We're really focused on putting the ball in play, giving ourselves opportunities and not putting up big numbers," summed Coach Scheinost. "Playing for par, letting birdies come."
