BLACKSBURG, Va. – The Virginia Tech golf team will complete the fall portion of the regular season this weekend at the UNCG Bridgestone Collegiate, to be played Saturday and Sunday at the par 72, 7,245-yard Grandover Resort in Greensboro, N.C.
The Hokies will look to put a successful cap on the fall season, which already includes victories at the Marshall Invitational and the VCU Shootout. Tech also finished fourth at the Brickyard Collegiate Golf Championship and eighth at Blackthorn Club.
Sophomore Scott Vincent (Harare, Zimbabwe), will lead off for the Hokies. He leads the Hokies in scoring average this season and has placed in the top 5 in two tournaments so far this season. Vincent missed the Brickyard while playing for his native Zimbabwe in the World Amateur Team Championship in Antalya, Turkey.
Senior Mikey Moyers (Stanardsville, Va.) will play in the second spot again this week. Moyers tied for fifth with Vincent at the VCU Shootout and tied for 10th at Marshall. He has played in every event since arriving at Virginia Tech in the Fall of 2008. Trevor Cone (Concord, N.C.) will play in the third spot for the Hokies. He has also played in every event since coming to Virginia Tech and was the team’s leading scorer last season. He finished in sixth place in the Marshall Invitational earlier this season and led the Hokies at the Brickyard, tying for sixth place individually.
Junior Bryce Chalkley (Richmond, Virginia) will play in the fourth position for the Hokies. He played in every event for the Hokies last season and tied with Moyers for 10th place at the Marshall Invitational this season. He led the Hokies with a 17th-place finish at Blackthorn Club. Freshman Maclain Huge (Lovettesville, Va.) will play in the fifth position for Tech. He posted a top 20 finish at Marshall, tying for 19th overall in his first collegiate event and followed that with an 11th-place finish at VCU.
