JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Jan. 13, 2021) – On Wednesday morning, ETSU Men’s Golf Head Coach Jake Amos revealed the 2021 Spring schedule, consisting of seven tournaments leading up to the 2021 Southern Conference Championship.
“I think we have put together a great schedule for the guys to compete in this spring,” commented Coach Amos. “We have been lucky to add a couple new events to make up for a shortened fall semester. We could not have made this happen without the support of our Athletic Director Scott Carter. I am excited to be getting to compete in some of the strongest fields in the country and also be playing a good mix of golf courses to help prepare us for postseason. We are playing a lot of golf but I know the team is ready for it.”
The Bucs competed in two tournaments in the fall of 2020 leading into the loaded spring schedule.
The seven-tournament season will begin with a prestigious event, the 2021 Southwestern Invitational in Westlake Village, Calif. The tournament, hosted by top-ranked Pepperdine, will take place Jan. 25-27 and will feature some of the top programs in the country, including: Arizona State, Georgia Tech and Stanford to name a few. Along with the loaded talent in the tournament, the 54-hole event will also air on the Golf Channel.
Following an individual tournament at Georgia Southern (Jan. 31-Feb. 1), the Bucs will take part in back-to-back tournaments in South Carolina. ETSU will partake in this year’s Kiawah Invitational (Feb. 14-16) before returning to the Palmetto State on March 14-16 to compete in The General Hackler, hosted by Coastal Carolina. ETSU finished 4th in The General Hackler last season, marking the final tournament of the year before shutting the season down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
ETSU’s final three tournaments of the season will be played across three different states, beginning with the Schenkel Invitational in Statesboro, Ga. from March 19-21. The following week, the Blue & Gold will compete in the Old Waverly Collegiate Championship hosted by Mississippi State (March 26-28). The final tournament of the regular-season will be the Stitch Intercollegiate in Cary, N.C., hosted by North Carolina State on April 9-10.
