ATLANTA – The Georgia State men’s golf team will return to action on Sunday for the Marquette Intercollegiate at historic Erin Hills Golf Club in Erin, Wisc. Erin Hills hosted the 117th U.S. Open Championship just two summers ago.
The field of 12 teams will play 54 holes on the par 72, 7,515-yard course with the second round set for Monday and the final round coming on Tuesday.
This week will mark the second event of the fall for the Panthers who are set to host the Autotrader Collegiate Classic at Berkeley Hills Country Club in just over a week.
“Anytime we can play on a course like Erin Hills it just adds to our desire to compete at the highest level,” head coach Chad Wilson said. “Our guys have continued to improve since the last round in Arizona a couple of weeks ago and we will hopefully take that momentum into this week’s event against another very good field.”
The field includes host Marquette, Ball State, Georgia State, Indiana, Liberty, Miami (Ohio), Northwestern, Purdue, South Florida, UC Davis, UCLA, and Wisconsin.
Georgia State’s line-up will include seniors Ashton Poole, Josh Edgar, Egill Gunnarsson, and Severin Sollier, along with sophomore David Li.
Poole, a graduate transfer from Virginia, led the Panthers at the Maui Jim Intercollegiate last month finishing tied for 21st after shooting three-straight rounds in the 60’s.
Last season Northwestern topped Arizona State to take the team title by two strokes while Wildcat Ryan Lumsden earned the individual title at 8-under par.

After a practice round on Saturday, teams will begin the event on Sunday with tee times starting at 10 a.m. ET.
Following this week’s tournament, the Panthers will return to the course Oct. 14-15, hosting the Autotrader Collegiate Classic at Berkeley Hills Country Club in Duluth.
