UTC Golfers Set To Host Scenic City Collegiate At Honors Course
Sunday, September 19, 2021
There’s only one Honors Course. It’s as special a tract as there is in golf hidden in the Chattanooga suburbs. It is unveiled once again to the collegiate community this week with the Scenic City Collegiate.
The Chattanooga Mocs host a virtual who’s who of college golf over two days and 54 holes. It’s the third time a regular season event is hosted at the Honors to go along with the two national championships in 1996 and 2010.
The Mocs bring a youthful squad to the mix. Freshmen Braedon Wear and Carson Johnson join senior Connor Nolan, junior Matt Smith and sophomore Paul Conroy.
They’re focusing on a fabulous course and notable competition.
The 15-team field includes defending champ UAB, Augusta, Clemson, ETSU, Georgia, Kennesaw State, LSU, Ole Miss, Miss State, UNCG, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt & Virginia. That list above is impressive. There are six teams that made the 30-team NCAA finals in the spring: UAB, Clemson, ETSU, Georgia, Tennessee, Vanderbilt.
The Mocs tee off Monday morning in an 8 a.m., shotgun start paired with the Commodores and Clemson. That begins a 36-hole day with a final 18 coming on Tuesday. Pairings, when available, are located in the Golfstat scoring link above.
