Tournament Summary

Keiser University College of Golf and Sport Management Eagles Golf Team made history recently by participating in its first ever Golf Team Tournament.  The Eagles participated in the very first Florida NCCGA Fall Regional Tournament that was held at Stone Creek Golf Club in Ocala, Florida on September 21st and 22nd.  The KU Eagles competed against the FSU Seminoles and the UCF Nights.  The Eagles overcame a 3 shot deficit on Saturday to win the tournament and beat the Seminoles by 8 strokes.  The two day total for the Eagles was 753 for a scoring average of 75.3.  KU also took low individual honors for 2nd, 3rd and 4th place.   By winning the event KU will earn 6 points towards the Fall National Championship which will be held in Myrtle Beach, SC in November.  The next event KU will be competing in will be the Florida Fall Regional II Tournament which will be held in the COG’s back yard in Port St. Lucie, Florida.  Keiser University will be the hosting team and looking to defend its opening win.

Every student at KU COG had an opportunity to compete for, and earn a spot, on the team.  The COG students went through a series match play events and tournaments to earn their spot on the team.  38 students battled it out on the golf course to earn the top 8 spots and represent Keiser University in its first team event.

This is a proud day for Keiser University and the College of Golf and Sport Management.  Thanks to the vision and support of Dr. Keiser and Mr. Peter Crocitto we were able to fulfill a long term goal for our students and offer them an opportunity to play competitive golf and represent Keiser University in tournament play.  We want to raise the bar on golf and competitive play and offer our students a platform to compete and grow their game.  We are very proud of our students and their accomplishment.  Marc Russell Head Golf Professional and PGA Member of the hosting club; was very complimentary of our students regarding their play, and even more importantly, their professionalism and sportsmanship on the golf course.  Our students were true professionals and served the University and their fellow students very well.” – John McMurry or Dr. Eric Wilson
