ETSU men given No. 14 ranking in Golfweek/Sagarin poll
Wednesday, September 03, 2008
The Buccaneers, who finished No. 23 in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings last year, open their 2008-09 season Sept. 12 at the Carpet Capital Collegiate in Dalton, Ga. The team, which was ranked 18th by the GCAA earlier this week, is coming off its school record 20th trip to the NCAA Championships.
Georgia tops the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings, followed by Oklahoma State, 2008 NCAA Champion UCLA, USC and Stanford. Tennessee is ranked 22nd.
ETSU will return five players from its roster of a year ago, including players such as Seamus Power (Waterford, Ireland) and Rhys Enoch (Cornwall, England), who both were major contributors to the Bucs a year ago. Newcomers such as Scottish Boys Champion Michael Stewart (Troon, Scotland) and U.S. Amateur qualifier Devin Komline (Dorset, Vermont) are also expected to compete for positions on the top five this fall.
