The Notebook

Virginia Tech golfer Marshall Bailey won the 2010 Valentine Invitational over the weekend at the Hermitage Country Club in Manakin-Sabot, Virginia.

Bailey, a senior from Fincastle, Virginia, shot a three-round total of seven-under-par 209 to claim a three-stroke victory over former University of Richmond golfer Jordan Utley of Greensboro, North Carolina.

The tournament was played on both of Hermitage's courses, the Sabot and Manakin. Bailey opened with a one-under 71 on the Sabot, followed with a four-under 68 on the Manakin course and shot 70 on the Sabot course on Sunday. He was one of two players to break par in each round.

The Manakin Course of Hermitage Country Club will be the site of the VCU Shootout, the Hokies’ second event of the fall season at the end of September.

Bailey was one of six Hokies in the event and all six finished in the top 12. Sophomore Jacob Everts and freshman Bryce Chalkley tied for seventh place at 215. Senior Garland Green was the 36-hole leader and finished tied with junior Blake Redmond for 10th place at 216 and senior Aaron Eckstein was tied for 12th at 218.
