Dalton State Men's Golf Fall Schedule Released
Tuesday, July 16, 2019 - by Erik Simpson
Dalton State Men's Golf Coach Ben Rickett released the Fall schedule for the Lady Roadrunners on Tuesday. The schedule features four tournaments and runs from early September until late October with a new event opening the season.
The Birds will kick the season off by traveling to Memphis, to take part in the Memphis Shootout on September 9 & 10.
The tournament will take place at TPC Southwind, home of the PGA Tour's WGC-FedEx/St. Jude Invitational.
"Over the last few seasons, it has been fun seeing how the Fall schedule has evolved," Rickett said. "The biggest change this year is the addition of the Memphis event, which is another tournament we'll play that is also a PGA Tour venue."
The string of playing at PGA Tour courses continues September 30 thru October 1 when the men tee it up at Innisbrook's Copperhead Course for the USCB Innisbrook Invitational hosted by South Carolina-Beaufort. The Copperhead Course is home to the Valspar Championship, played annually in March.
The Roadrunners will travel to Vonore, Tennessee on October 12 & 13 for the Bojangles Tennessee Intercollegiate. DS has experienced tremendous success in the event the past three season, racking up three-straight victories.
The attempt for four-straight wins will be tested as the tournament moves from Tennessee National Golf Club in Loudon to The Links at Kahite.
Dalton State will defend another tournament title to end the Fall when they make the short trip down I-75 to Adairsville and Barnsley Gardens for the TMU Fall Invitational.
"Finishing close to home at Barnsley Gardens will end the Fall the right way," Rickett added. "It's all very exciting as we see different styles of courses and opponents over the Fall portion to start prepping for a return and redemption in Arizona next May."
