HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - After placing second at the Bearcat Invitational last season, Marshall men's golf will look to build on its 2013 success when it competes again at Traditions Golf Club in Hebron, Ky. The 54-hole tournament will begin with an 8:45 a.m. shotgun start for two rounds on Monday, and will conclude with an 18-hole final with tee times starting at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
Results will be available through Golfstat after each round, and a recap of each day will be posted to HerdZone.com.
HAVE YOU HERD?
Sophomore Clark Robinson (South Windsor, Conn.) placed second while leading Marshall to a runner-up team finish at George Mason's Patriot Intercollegiate at Laurel Hill Golf Club (Sept. 29).
Robinson's three-round total of 3-under-par 210 tied Christopher Crawford of Drexel at runner-up. For the second consecutive year at the event, Robinson shot a career-low round of 66 during the final 18 holes. He is the eighth player in Herd history to shoot a 66, and is the only Marshall player to do it twice.
Missouri took the team victory out of 17 teams at 1-under 851, three strokes ahead of the Herd (2-over 854).
ROBINSON EARNS C-USA HONORS
Following a runner-up finish at the Patriot Intercollegiate, Clark Robinson (South Windsor, Conn.) was named Conference USA Golfer of the Week, the league announced on Oct. 1.
The award is the second of the sophomore's career. He earned the honor last season by championing the same event with the same score (3-under 210) in Lorton, Va. (Sept. 29, 2013). Robinson is the fifth Marshall golfer to earn the honor, and the first since Brian Anania (Hurricane, W.Va.) won it last season after winning the Bearcat Invitational (Oct. 9, 2013).
- The Herd's Brian Anania (Hurricane, W.Va.) championed the Bearcat Invitational last season for his first collegiate win (6-under 210).
- Marshall finished second overall at the event last season (3-over 867), five strokes behind Austin Peay State.
- Three Herd golfers placed in the top 10 last year: Anania in first, Logan Lagodich (Canton, Ohio) at seventh, Jeremy Rogers (Buckhannon, W.Va.) tied for eighth.
