Merzbacher looks to replicate last week's top-25 finish

March 3, 2014

Hot off last week's John Hayt Invitational, the Tennessee men's golf team travels to Davidson, N.C., for the 2014 Davidson College Invitational.

The par 72, 7,208-yard event will take on March 3-4 at the River Run Country Club.

In addition to the Vols, the 14-team field will feature Davidson (host), Drexel, Gardner-Webb, High Point, Holy Cross, Kent State, La Salle, Longwood, Marshall, Presbyterian, Radford, St. Bonaventure and Wofford.

Davidson captured both the team and individual title a year ago at the Davidson Invitational.

On just a week's rest, head coach Jim Kelson will use the starting five of:

Oliver Goss
Chad Merzbacher
Danny Keddie
Marshall Talkington
Jack Smith

Sophomore Mike Nagy will also be competing at the Sawgrass Country Club as an individual.

Due to expected cold temperatures, the two-day event has been shortened to 36 holes beginning with a 9:00 a.m. shotgun start Monday. The final round will begin at approximately 10:00 a.m. Tuesday morning.
