Men's golf continues fall slate at Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate

October 09, 2014

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- The Penn State men's golf team will look to continue its strong fall season showing at the three-day Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate Friday in Jonesborough, Tenn. The 15-team field will take on the par 72, 7,147 course at the Blackthorn Club.

The competition includes Coastal Carolina, East Tennessee State University, Furman, Kent State, Memphis, NC State, Army, UNC Wilmington, Tennessee, Virginia, Wake Forest, Villanova, Virginia Tech and Missouri.

The Nittany Lions will be represented by the same starters that led the team to a third place finish last week at the Primland Collegiate Invite. Junior JD Dornes (Lancaster, Pa.) piloted the Blue and White at the 2013 Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate, posting a 220 overall.

Senior Jens Talbert (Little Rock, Ark.) shot a 227 a year ago, while sophomores Cody Cox (Milford, Pa.) and Christian Elliott (Port Perry, Ontario) played in the event during their rookie seasons with the team and carded a 256 and 225, respectively.

The only tournament newcomer for Penn State will be freshman Cole Miller (New Tripoli, Pa.). Miller is coming off a Big Ten Player of the Week honor after his third-place performance at Primland.

Recaps will be posted on www.GoPSUsports.com following each day of the 54-hole event, which commences at 8 a.m. Friday and will conclude with the final 18 holes on Sunday. Live scoring can be followed at www.golfstat.com.
