Good Times for Vol Golf


The last few days have been extremely good for the Tennessee men's golf program.

On Friday, four Vol golfers compete in the 66th Annual SunTrust State Open Championship at the Belle Meade Country Club. Recent UT graduate Brandon Rodgers (pictured above) finished runner-up at the State Open with a 210 (-3). Rodgers shot rounds of 71-69-70. Making the week even more special, Rodgers celebrated his 22nd birthday on Saturday.

Former Vol golfer Marshall Talkington had a top 10 finish at the State Open, placing in a tie for 9th. The native of Jackson, Tenn., shot a 54-hole total of 215 (+2) with rounds of 75-71-69.

Current UT golfers Jack Smith and Grant Daugherty also competed in the 66th State Open, but failed to make the cut.


Rick Lamb was also in action this weekend at the Willow Creek Open in High Point, N.C. The former UT star made his first career start on the eGolf Tour circuit. Lamb finished in 3rd place after pushing the leader, Andrew Yun, for most of the tournament. 

Lamb birdied on Nos. 2, 3, 5 and 6 to push him to 11-under par early on Friday, but a bogey-birdie-bogey stretch on Nos. 13 through 15 dropped him back down to 10-under par and out of contention for the event title. Lamb was tied for 2nd place heading to the tee of the par-4 18th, but closed with a bogey to finish his week with a 70 (-2).

One final note: Next week, former Vols Jay Vandeventer and David Holmes will begin their stints on the PGA Canadian Tour starting in Vancouver.

"To be honored as Tennessean of the Year is fabulous. I'm humbled," Helton said. "To see some of the names like Pat Head Summitt, Coach (Phillip) Fulmer and to just walk in some of the same shoes they've walked in just amazing."

Former Tennessee football star and Paul Naumoff was inducted into the Hall as was former Lady Vols basketball standout Bridgette Gordon.
