Next on the tee
CSU will head to Macon, Ga., for the fifth annual Brickyard Collegiate Friday. Mercer University has partnered with the Brickyard at Riverside to host one of the nation's premier golf events with some of the best collegiate programs competing for the title. The tournament will begin on Friday and continue through Sunday with 18 holes of competition each day.
The tournament will be held at the 7,128-yard, par-72 Brickyard at Riverside. The course was ranked by Golf Digest as the best course in central Georgia. The course was built in 1961 but redesigned by PGA Tour player Mark McCumber in 2005.
The 15-team field features four programs - Mercer, Augusta State, Georgia Tech and Georgia - from the state of Georgia. The Georgia Bulldogs are three-time winners and defending champions of the Brickyard Collegiate. College of Charleston, North Florida, Colorado State, Mississippi, Air Force, Chattanooga, Florida State, Gonzaga, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma and Texas-Arlington make up the rest of the 2011 field. Georgia Tech is tied for fifth in the Golf World/Nike Golf Coaches' Poll, Georgia is tied for 16th and FSU is 18th. Colorado State, Chattanooga, Oklahoma and Augusta State are receiving votes.
Zahkai Brown, Kirby Pettitt, Mike Sorenson, Parker Edens and K.C. Chang will be swinging for Head Coach Jamie Bermel in Macon. Brown is currently No. 4 in the Mountain West for stroke average per round with a 70.50. Pettitt was a large contributor in CSU's victory over rival CU in the Colorado Cup, earning the team 2 points in the Ryder Cup-style match. He sits at No. 10 in the Mountain West for stroke average per round with a 72.17. Chang, a transfer from Bellvue Community College, will be making his debut for the Rams.
