Men's Golf Back On The Links For Autotrader Collegiate Classic

NASHVILLE - The Lipscomb men's golf team is set for its penultimate tournament of the fall season at the Autotrader Collegiate Classic hosted by Georgia State on Oct. 14-15.

The tournament will be held at the Berkeley Hills Country Club located in Duluth, Ga. on a par-72 course that runs 6,694 yards and will host 14 total teams.

The Bisons will tee-off on Monday with the first and second rounds and play 36-holes, followed by a final round of 18-holes on Tuesday.

Lipscomb has had successful showings in the Autotrader Collegiate Classic's past. Back in 2015, the Purple and Golf won the team title with a 54-hole total of 839, eight strokes better than runner-up South Florida (847). Dawson Armstrong won the individual title by eight strokes at 200 by firing rounds of 65-67-68 to pace the Bisons.
