Emory Golf To Compete At Jekyll Island Collegiate Invitational

Emory Golf To Compete At Jekyll Island Collegiate Invitational

Fresh off winning the program's fourth straight University Athletic Association Championships, the Emory University golf team continues its spring season this weekend (Mar. 15-17) when it competes at the prestigious Jekyll Island Collegiate Invitational.  The 54-hole event will be played on the 6,725-yard, par-72 Pine Lakes Course, and serving as the host institution will be Oglethorpe University.

Emory, ranked No. 1 in the latest Division III Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Poll, will be one of 28 teams in this year's talent-stacked field.  Seven of the top 10 and a total of 13 of the top-25 ranked programs will take part. In addition to Emory, other top-10 squads include No. 2 Huntingdon, No. 3 Illinois Wesleyan, No. 4 Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, No. 6 Methodist, No. 7 Guilford and No. 8 Southwestern University.

Methodist enters this year's event as defending champion after finishing 11 shots ahead of Guilford.  Emory ended up tied with Southwestern for fourth place.  

Using match-play format, Emory defended its title, its seventh UAA crown over the past nine years, defeating Rochester, 4-1, in the semifinals and Carnegie Mellon, 3-2 in the championship match.  Sophomore Eric Yiu was named Most Valuable Player while freshman Logan Ryan earned a spot on the all-tournament team.
