WASHINGTON - GW golf rounds out play for the fall 2013 season at the three-day, 54-hole Wendy's Kiawah Classic at the Turtle Point Golf Course in Kiawah Island, S.C., on Nov. 3-5.
First-year Head Coach Chuck Scheinost will send a five-man team of junior Jack Persons, sophomores Michael Helton and Steve Piela, and freshmen Lucas Farmer and Michael Heda to the par-72, 7,100-yard Turtle Point course, which was designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus and is rated 48th on Golf Digest's 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses list.
Piela is coming off his third career top-20 finish with a tie for 20th at East Carolina's Pirate Intercollegiate. His 76.83 scoring average this fall is second on the team behind Heda's 74.56.
The Colonials will compete against a solid 18-team field consisting of host Charleston Southern, Campbell, Creighton, Elon, Jacksonville State, Marquette, Minnesota, Missouri, Presbyterian, Radford, Richmond, defending champion South Carolina, Towson, Western Kentucky, Winthrop, Wisconsin and USC Upstate.
After concluding the Wendy's Kiawah Classic, GW will have a dozen weeks to prepare for its spring opening event at the Arizona Intercollegiate in Tucson, Ariz., on the new Sewailo Golf Club on Jan. 27-28, 2014.
