Tide Men's Golf In Aiken Tourney
The Palmetto Golf Club, site of the 54-hole tournament, was founded in 1892 and is recognized as the fourth oldest golf course in the United States.
The Alabama team of Coach Jay Seawell is the highest ranked team in the tournament. Bama, which has won three of its last five events, including the only tournament of spring play, is ranked third in the nation by Golfweek and fifth by Golf World.
The Crimson Tide most recently won the Puerto Rico Classic, defeating the nation's number one team, Oklahoma State, among others.
There are 18 teams in the tournament. In addition to Alabama and host USC-Aiken, the field includes No. 18 Virginia, No. 41 Clemson, defending champion Chattanooga, Akron, College of Charleston, East Carolina, Elon, Francis Marion, Furman, Georgia Southern, Kentucky, Liberty, Maryland, Presbyterian, Wofford, and Vanderbilt.
The Crimson Tide has three golfers in the Top 35 of the Golfweek/Sagarin Individual Performance Index, and four in the Top 100. Freshman Bobby Wyatt is ranked No. 5, junior Bud Cauley comes in at No. 14, and freshman Cory Whitsett is ranked No. 35. Junior Hunter Hamrick rounds out the four Crimson Tide golfers ranked in the Top 100, coming in at No. 86.
Those four along with Trey Mullinax, who finished tied for 11th in Puerto Rico, will tee it up this weekend for Alabama.
