FURMAN, S.C.- The Thundering Herd men’s golf team will embark on a trip to South Carolina this weekend for the Furman Intercollegiate tournament hosted by Furman University this Friday through Sunday at the Furman University Golf Club.
Marshall will carry Bosten Miller, Brian Anania, Nathan Kerns, Tas Sipowski, and Jeremy Rogers on the trip, while Carson Schambach will accompany the squad to compete as an individual. Overall, a group of 21 solid teams composes the field, with Virginia Tech, Francis Marion, Charleston Southern, Presbyterian, Clemson, Wofford, Elon, Coastal Carolina, ETSU, Gardner-Webb, Samford, Winthrop, Georgia, Georgia State, Temple, Troy, Western Carolina, Furman, Purdue, and Michigan set to do battle with Marshall out on the par-72, 6994-yard course.
Following a practice round on Thursday, the Herd will tee-off for the first round at 8:00 a.m. on Friday. The second round will commence at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, and the final round is set to be played on Sunday. The top half of the field will tee-off in the afternoon, while the bottom half will start the final round in the morning.
So far this spring Marshall has finished last in both tournaments, but will be looking to rebound with a stronger showing at Furman this weekend. Following the intercollegiate, the Herd will then travel to Florida Atlantic University for the FAU Spring Break Classic set to take place next Friday through Sunday at the Fountains Country Club in Lake Worth, Fla.
