UTC Women Golfers Travel To Iowa For Diane Thomason Invitational

Thursday, October 10, 2013

The Chattanooga Mocs women’s golf team completes its whirlwind fall schedule in Iowa this weekend at the Diane Thomason Invitational. At tourney end, UTC will have played five events (14 rounds) in a mere 28 days.

“The fall segment of our year has come and gone,” Head Coach Colette Murray said. “We were not pleased with our result at East Carolina. We hope to make up some of the ground we lost at that event this week in Iowa.”

The 54-hole, two-day tourney opens with 36 holes on Saturday before a final 18 on Sunday. Both days begin at 9:30 a.m., Eastern time, with shotgun starts.

This is not the Mocs first foray into Iowa City and Finkbine Golf Course. UTC won the 2007 Hawkeye Invitational by 19 shots over runner-up Wisconsin. It was the squad’s third consecutive win to open the program’s inaugural season.
