Both Troy Men and Women’s golf began its respective 2013-2014 seasons with tournaments this week.
The Trojan men traveled to Daufuskie Island, S.C. to take part in the Rees Jones Intercollegiate that ran from Sunday to Tuesday while the women’s team headed to Monroe, La. to play in the Fred Marx Invitational on Monday and Tuesday.
For the Trojan women, playing some golf down in the bayou was a good combination as the team combined to shoot a 1-under-par 287 on Tuesday that propelled Troy to finish in third place.
Trojan junior Langley Vannoy had a day to remember as she shot 3-under-par 69 to tie for fourth place.
There were even a couple of freshmen for Troy who started the season out strong in Fátima Fernández Cano who was 1-over-par and Becca Horner who concluded Tuesday’s action even par.
Taylor McGraw shot a 73 in her final round to finish tied for 21st while Brooke Spinks came in at 37th.
The Troy women bust out the clubs again on Oct 14-15 when they take part Jacksonville Courtyard Classic.
The Men’s golf team was able to finish ninth in the Rees Jones Intercollegiate thanks partly to Phillip Brennan taking 14th place after shooting 6-over-par 222 during the three day tournament.
The Trojan men had a chance to finish better than ninth overall, as they stood at sixth place midway through the final round but combining to shoot 20-over-par on the back nine dashed those hopes.
When it was all said and done, Jack Tucker, who shot a 76 on Tuesday, would finish tied for 16th while Tolver Dozier dropped back to a tie for 42nd after shooting an 84 on Tuesday.
Kyle Thommesen would finish tied for 50th and Wil Clowdus tied for 65th.
The Troy men get back on the course when they make the trip to Duluth, Ga. to compete in the Auto Trader Collegiate Classic.
