Covenant Golfers Earn USA South Tournament Berth

Thursday, April 03, 2014

The Covenant men's golf team moved up eight spots in this week's Golfstat rankings and earned a berth in next week's USA South Men's Golf Tournament in the process.

The USA South takes the top nine teams in the league, based on Golfstat's rankings. Covenant moved to 86th this week, up from 94th last week, for the eighth spot in the tournament field. The conference boasts two top-10 teams and five teams in the top 30.

The tournament will consist of three rounds beginning on Friday, April 11 and concluding on Sunday, April 13 at Benvenue Country Club in Rocky Mount, N.C. Because of Covenant's rule prohibiting athletic competition on Sundays, the Scots will compete in only the first two rounds of the event.

With Covenant's berth to the conference tournament, the team will not participate in the George H. Bedwell Memorial Invite on April 14-15.
