This weekend, the Tennessee men's golf team heads to Williamsburg, Va., to compete in the C&F Bank Intercollegiate, beginning on Sunday, March 24.
The C&F Bank Intercollegiate is a three day, 54-hole tournament, hosted by William and Mary at the Kingsmill Resort. The River Course at Kingsmill Resort was designed by famed golf architect Pete Dye, and is bordered by the James River. The par-71 course was named a Top Ten Virginia course destination by Golfweek Magazine.
Rodgers is looking to continue his hot streak after capturing the first individual championship of his career at the Bobby Nichols Intercollegiate. Similarly, Goss is looking to build off the momentum gained from his first career individual championship at the General Hackler Championship on March 12.
