April 12, 2015

Tournament Information

WEST POINT, N.Y. — The Army golf team will close out the regular season this Monday and Tuesday at the Coca Cola Wofford Invitational in Spartanburg, S.C. The tournament features 54-holes in a two-day span.

“This will be our last tournament prior to the Patriot League Championships in a few weeks,” said head coach Brian Watts. “It is important for the team to play well this weekend and continue to improve every day. The golf course can yield a lot of birdies if you’re making good decisions and staying patient. We’re looking forward to another opportunity to compete and are hoping to be in contention going into the final nine holes.”

Army will utilize the five-man team of Marcus Plunkett, Eric Peng, Justin Pagila, Dean Sakata and Robby Hill at the two-day tournament.

The Black Knights make their debut at the historic tournament and are one of 14 teams that will be teeing off this weekend. Appalachian State, Austin Peay, Bethune Cookman, Francis Marion, Furman, Gardner Webb, Lamar, Longwood, Presbyterian, Stetson, USC Upstate, Western Carolina and host Wofford will be playing alongside Army.

The Country Club of Spartanburg boasts a par 72 course that plays at 6,648 yards.

The 54-hole tournament features a 9:30 a.m. shotgun start on Monday with the second round following completely after. The final 18-holes begin with a shotgun start on Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. with an awards presentation to follow.

Plunkett was Army’s top finisher at last weekend’s tournament where the team finished in second. He placed tied for fourth after carding a 75-79–154 and was followed by Peter Kim who was eighth. Peng totaled 158 strokes to tie for 16th, while Pagila (160) and Sakata (163) finished tied for 21st and 27th, respectively.

Kim leads the team this season averaging 73.17 per round and is closely followed by Sakata with an average of 73.72. Plunkett Kim and Plunkett both hold season-low rounds with three-under scores. As a team, the Black Knights’ lowest round of the spring was a 290 at the Seahawk Intercollegiate.
