Georgia Northwestern 23rd At Chick-Fil-A Invitational

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

Georgia Northwestern took part this past weekend in one of two scheduled pre-season fall tournaments before teeing off the college’s inaugural season of intercollegiate golf this spring.

The Chick-Fil-A Invitational in Rome, Georgia saw the Cats Golf program take a 23rd place finish. Georgia Northwestern played round one at Stonebridge Golf Club on Monday, September 30. Round two was held at Coosa Country Club.

Freshman Bobcat golfers Brandon Parrish and Drew Tankersley led the way in the college’s initial offering. Tankersley led the way on Monday with a 77 (+5) at Stonebridge. After teeing off at number nine, Tankersley would shoot even par through the first eight holes of play Monday. A double bogey and bogey combination on 17 and 18 would keep things slightly above par for the rest of the day. Tankersley posted an 83 on day two for a tournament total 160 (+16).

  On Tuesday, it was fellow Cat linkster Brandon Parrish who would pick up the pace when the squad teed off at Coosa Country Club. Parrish would birdie 15 and 16 to finish day two with a 76 (+4), leading the way for Georgia Northwestern in the tourney with an overall 155 (+11) Also suiting up for the Cats in the Floyd County, Georgia event this week were Gavin Reeves, Adrian Petino, Jermaine Carter, and Shawn Welch.

“A lot of tension, nervousness, as we got going Monday. But we really made some progress between day one and day two,” said Georgia Northwestern Head Men’s Golf Coach Jared Willerson. “We’ve got a couple of weeks to make preparations for our other big event this fall. We should see some good growth out of each of these student-athletes by then.”

Georgia Northwestern will tee things off in their second warm-up event for the inaugural season this spring by heading to the Maryville (TN) Invitational at Green Meadow Country Club October 18-19

Tom Dugan Was A Good Man

Tom was my boss for most of my 36 years at Carta.  At the ceremony where I was awarded my 30-year service award, Tom said, "Don disagrees with 85% of my decisions, but I wish I had 80 more employees just like him." This kind of indicates our relationship. When I asked him to help with my plans for a reunion for the group of Veterans that I served with in Vietnam, he quickly ... (click for more)
