GREENSBORO, N.C.- UNC Greensboro’s men’s golf team will head to Georgia to participate in the eighth-annual Autotrader Collegiate Classic that will be taking place on. Oct. 14-16 at Berkeley Hills Country Club in Duluth, Ga.

Live stats will be available throughout the tournament via GolfStat.com.

A Glance At The Squad
The Spartans are coming off their best finish of the season, taking third place at the Wolfpack Intercollegiate that took place at Lonnie Poole Golf Club in Raleigh, N.C. The Spartans shot an 846 (290-277-279) to finish behind only North Carolina State and Jacksonville in a talented 15-team field. 

UNCG was led by junior Jonathan Brightwell, who led most of the tournament before finishing in second place at 11-under. The finish was Brightwell’s best since tying for first place in the 2017 Southern Conference Championship. Brightwell, however, wasn’t alone in the top 10 as sophomore Nick Lyerly was also a top finisher at eight-under. Senior Bryce Hendrix also finished the weekend one-under.

During the 2014 edition of the Autotrader Collegiate Classic, UNCG won a rain-shortened tournament by three strokes over VCU with two Spartan golfers finishing in the top three individually.
