TU takes 13th in Georgia
The Towson men’s golf team traveled to Duluth, Ga. to compete in the AutoTrader.com Collegiate Classic Monday, Oct. 15.
The Tigers finished 13th overall in a talented 16-team field that included nine of the top 100 players in the country.
The competitive field provided Towson with a solid measure of where the team stands as the fall circuit comes to a close.
“These are the people you want to compete against,” Head Coach Brian Yaniger said. “You want to play against good players. We saw how good we need to be. It was something that these players are proud to have participated in.”
The top performer for the Tigers was junior Joe Gunerman, who finished tied for 19th in the 88-man field.
Yaniger credited Gunerman’s continual improvement throughout his career for his success in the recent tournaments.
“He’s been working at it since the day he got here. The difference between where he is now and a few years ago is one of the biggest improvements I’ve seen in my 16 years here,” he said.
Junior Matt Fry and freshman Alex Church each finished with a 54-hole total of 232, placing them tied for 64th overall.
The Tigers conclude the fall portion of their schedule at Turtle Point Golf Course in Charleston, S.C. at the Kiawah Intercollegiate Oct. 28-30.
“There will be a pretty good field down there,” Yaniger said. “There’ll be some good teams down there from the SEC and Big Ten, and that’s who we want to play against.”
