Men's golf heads to Myrtle Beach
Turnbow tweaking lineupMarch 10, 2013 · @MTAthletics
MURFREESBORO - In an effort to pump some younger blood into the Middle Tennessee golf team, Coach Whit Turnbow will try a new, but less experienced, lineup at Myrtle Beach Monday and Tuesday as the Blue Raiders compete in the General Hackler Invitational.
It will be played at the prestigious TPC course of Myrtle Beach, which is actually in Murrell's Inlet. As are all tournaments that Turnbow books for his Blue Raiders, this one includes a star-studded field. Among the top teams are Tennessee, Arkansas, Coastal Carolina, ETSU and UTEP.
Frustrated by lack of consistency in the lower end of the order, Turnbow will make at least one lineup change for the Hackler.
"Lucas Armstrong has played well lately, and Andrew Cho had two good rounds last week, but I don't know what happened to him on the final day. He was all over the place, but he is making progress. That is just part of being so young."
Turnbow noted that the team was "getting a lot of strokes for our money right now, but we'll get better. We are already getting better."
Blue Raider fans can follow the team on GolfStat.com for live scoring both days, as well as on GoBlueRaiders.com for a detailed report at the conclusion of play each day. The format will be 36 holes on Monday and 18 on Tuesday.
