The men’s golf team will be playing at the J.T. Poston Invitational (formerly the Hummingbird Invitational) this week at the par-71, 6.767-yard Country Club of Sapphire Valley, in Sapphire, NC, before hosting their event at GreyStone Golf Club for the fourth year in a row, which will also be their fourth tournament they have participated in this fall.

Overall, the Govs have posted two Top-eight finishes for coach Robbie Wilson it their two tournaments heading into this week event, finishing fifth at the Sam Hall Intercollegiate in Hattiesburg, MS, on September 9th and 10th, and eighth at the Derek Dolenc Invitational in Madison, IL, last week.
