Men's Golf Set to Pursue Third National Championship This Week in Greensboro

The Oglethorpe men's golf team will participate at the NCAA Division III Championship this week at Grandover Resort in Greensboro, N.C. The team looks to capture its third national championship and make up for a disappointing showing at the event last year, where they failed to make the cut.

The team has had another impresseive season leading into the tournament, standing second in the nation in the latest GCAA Coaches' Poll and third in the Golfstat relative rankings. According to the Golfstat rankings, the Petrels feature the top player in Division III in junior Anthony Maccaglia and another Top 20 golfer in the nation in senior Hayden Jones.

The Petrels won the Camp Lejeune Championship and the Callaway Gardens Intercollegiate in the spring, as well as the Golfweek D3 Fall Invitational back in October.
