ATLANTA – Coming off a second-place finish two weeks ago, the Georgia State men’s golf team will return to the course on Saturday for the UNCG Grandover Collegiate at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, N.C.
In their annual home event, Georgia State finished in second place two weeks ago at Berkeley Hills Country Club, finishing ahead of all but one team in the 16-field. Four Panthers finished among the top 25.
Following a practice round on Friday at the Grandover Resort East Course, which is a par-72, 7,245-yard course, teams will play 36 holes on Saturday with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start, followed by the final 18 holes on Sunday with a 9:30 a.m. shotgun start.
“We are coming off a great performance at home two weeks ago and solid practice since then,” Director of Golf Joe Inman said. “We need to keep that momentum going this week. Every year UNC Greensboro puts on a great event with a really good field at a fine resort. We look forward to getting back on the course.”
Along with Georgia State, the field will include host UNC Greensboro, Duke, Kansas State, Loyola (Md.), North Carolina, NC State, Northwestern, VCU and Virginia Tech.
Soller is leading the Panthers with a 71.60 scoring average in two events this fall. The transfer from Mississippi State has a win and a fourth-place finish in his first two events as a member of the Panthers.
Budd won the event last year with three rounds in the 60's to finish at 12-under par. It marked the first collegiate win of his career.

Following this week’s event, Georgia State will conclude the fall at The Battle at Stono Ferry in Hollywood, S.C., Nov. 3-4. The event was originally scheduled as The Invitational at The Ocean Course in September but was postponed due to a hurricane.
