Emory Golf Gears Up For Greensboro-Gordin Classic
After a solid effort at the Chick-fil-A College Invitational,
the No. 15-ranked Emory University golf team plays in its third
tournament of the fall on Sunday and Monday (Oct. 10-11) when it
competes at the Greensboro-Gordin Classic Invitational.
Hosted by Guilford College, Ohio Wesleyan and the Greensboro Sports
Commission, the 36-hole event will be played on the East Course at
the Grandover Resort, and dedicated to the memory of former
Guilford College Head Golf Coach Jack Jensen.
This year’s 18-team field is loaded with talented with the top five and eight of the top 10 Division III programs represented. Among the squads looking to take home the title are No. 1-ranked Greensboro, No. 2 Huntingdon College, No. 3 Methodist, No. 4 Skidmore College, No. 5 St. Johns (MN), No. 7 Guilford and No. 8 LaGrange College.
In Emory’s last outing, it recorded a fourth-place finish out of 21 teams at the Chick-fil-A College Invitational in Rome, Georgia. Junior Tae Cho topped the Eagles’ effort with a 36-hole score of 143 that was good for a fourth-place tie in the 113-player field. Junior Ryan Dagerman was deadlocked for sixth position at 144. In addition to Cho and Dagerman, other Emory players competing at the Greensboro-Gordin Classic will be seniors Charles Raindre and Nick Szem and sophomore Thomas Mally.
