Tiger Golf Set for Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate
Oct. 10, 2010
MEMPHIS, Tenn.—The University of Memphis golf team will travel to Vestavia Hills, Ala. Oct. 11-12 to compete in the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate.
The event will be held at the par-70, 6,936-yard Old Overton Country Club with Alabama serving as the tournament’s host school. Alabama, along with the tournament’s namesake, Jerry Pate, has hosted the event since 1986.
In addition to being one of the strongest fields in collegiate golf, the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate raises over $20,000 annually for charities. Alabama successfully defended its home turf for the fourth consecutive time last season, posting back-to-back team scores of 273 to defeat runner-up Texas (276-276) by six strokes.
This year’s field includes Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia State, Memphis, Mississippi State, Samford, SMU, Southern Miss, South Alabama, UAB, and UNLV.
Memphis is just two weeks removed from its victory at the Mason Rudolph Championship where it was paced by Jack Belote’s medalist performance. Belote posted a 54-hole total of 205, the second lowest total in school history.
The Tigers followed that finish with a seventh place showing at the Wolfpack Intercollegiate, where they were led by Belote and Steve Lee’s 54-hole total of 216.
