UTC Golfers Prepare For 2019 Season

Monday, August 12, 2019
-The Chattanooga Mocs open the 2019-20 men’s golf season in a familiar place. They’d like to end it in one as well with a return to NCAA postseason. But first things first, the Mocs get underway in just 25 days.

The squad opens at the prestigious Carpet Capital Collegiate. The “Masters of College Golf” is the annual opener in nearby Rocky Face, Ga. The Mocs take on a fantastic field on the Farm Sept. 6-8. The weekend is a free look at some of the top college teams in the country with Chattanooga winning in 2008 and claiming second in 2009.

That’s followed by nine regular season events leading into the Southern Conference Championships April 19-21.
The league moves to Reynolds Lake Oconee Resort’s Oconee Course after a long run at Pinehurst No. 9 (2014-19).

The squad is going nationwide with tourneys from sea to shining sea. From Kiawah Island off the South Carolina coast to northern California. There are 10 tests preparing for exam season as the Mocs look for their first SoCon title since 2013 while also returning to NCAA postseason play May 18-20 with six region sites qualifying for the NCAA Championships May 29-June 3 in Scottsdale, Ariz.

“Every year I probably say the same thing,” Coach Mark Guhne stated. “We design the schedule to challenge our guys and prepare them for postseason play. That’s our focus. There are five tournaments in the fall and another five in the spring. Over the course of those 10 events, we have a good idea who will be ready to get back on top of the SoCon leaderboard.

“Getting back to the NCAA postseason is a primary goal. This group is more than capable of making that happen.”

Good Sports Bar News

Just had dinner Tuesday night at Jonathan's Grille location in Hendersonville, Tn. When in Murfreesboro or Nashville, it's one of my favs. Just a great sports bar concept and menu. So happy to hear the Revelette brothers are bringing their brand (and their pizza night) to the old 212 Market location in downtown Chattanooga. Bring it on! Garry Mac (click for more)

As I stood in the checkout line of the Walmart in Tiftonia this week, my newest friend named Harold asked me, “What’s the difference between an outlaw and an in-law. As I searched my mind, Harold responded, “Outlaws are wanted!” I immediately accepted his joke as a good omen. It helps me to remind readers of The Saturday Funnies, I just collect them during the week and pass them ... (click for more)
