NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Vanderbilt men’s golf team will enjoy the comfortabilities of home this weekend when they begin play at the Vanderbilt Legends Collegiate.
The three-day, 54-hole event will be held Sunday-Tuesday at the Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin, Tennessee, the home course of the Commodores. All 14 Southeastern Conference teams are scheduled to be in attendance.
Fans are not permitted to attend the event.
“It’s exciting to have all 14 SEC schools coming to Vanderbilt Legends Club to compete,” Vanderbilt head coach Scott Limbaugh said. “We are thankful to everyone at Vanderbilt Legends and at Vanderbilt University that have helped to make this happen.
“The goal for this fall season was to give the student-athletes an opportunity to compete and it’s exciting for us to be able to play a part in that.”
The Legends Collegiate will be the second of three fall tournaments for the Commodores in 2020. Earlier this month Vandy finished tied for fifth out of 14 teams at the Blessings Collegiate Invitational in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Sophomore William Moll led the Dores there with a three-day total of 214 to finish 2-under for the tournament and tied for sixth overall. Senior John Augenstein (+2, tied for 13th) and junior Michael Shears (+3, tied for 16th) also finished inside the top 20.
“We have had a couple of good weeks of preparation and the guys are excited to get to compete again,” Limbaugh said. “Our focus has been on improving and making that improvement important to each of us. College golf is all about how you progress from week to week and tournament to tournament and that part is what makes the journey so fun.”
Competition will be held on the North course at Vanderbilt Legend’s Club. The par 71, 7,221-yard layout was designed by Hal of Fame golfer Tom Kite and architect Bob Kupp.
