UNCG Men’s Golf is having an outstanding year. And they head to the SoCon Championship tournament next week.
The team won the recent 2019 Irish Creek Intercollegiate – marking only the second time Men’s Golf has won three tournaments in one year. They also finished in first place at the UNCG Grandover Collegiate and the UNCG Martin Downs Collegiate.
Bryce Hendrix, a senior majoring in recreation and parks management, easily took home the individual championship in the tournament, finishing at 20-under. His 54-hole score of 193 shattered the previous school record of 203 set by Carter Jenkins and his 20-under also easily broke the school record for a score against par.
Women’s Golf competed in the SoCon Championship this week. They placed second at the Fall Spartan Classic. Their academic discipline is noteworthy. They have a team GPA of 3.83. That stellar academic mark received special notice during last week’s trustees meeting.
