Men's golf begins OVC Championship action
Monday, April 25, 2011


Dickson, Tenn. --- The Tennessee State University men's golf team will begin action at the 2011 Ohio Valley Conference Men's Golf Championship on Monday.

The 54-hole tournament is being held at GreyStone Golf Club in Dickson, Tenn.

The first groups were scheduled to start at 8:30 a.m. CT, but weather has forced the tee times to be pushed back to 9:30 a.m. The par 72 course is playing 6,858 yards for this week's tournament.

Designed by PGA Tour pro Mark McCumber, GreyStone Golf Club offers a great championship course and great staff. Located in historic Dickson, the golf course is a short drive from Nashville and is easily accessible from throughout middle Tennessee. Opened in 1998, GreyStone Golf Club is a public course that has hosted numerous high profile events including PGA Tour qualifying, Senior PGA Tour qualifying and the Tennessee State Open.

Andrew Warner comes in to the tournament leading the team with a (+4) 75.9 stroke average. Cameron Scitern is right behind him with a 76.0 average while Ryan Smith rounds out the top three with a 76.1.

Last year, Tennessee State finished the championship tied for fourth, the program's best finish since joining the OVC in 1988.

This marks the second year in a row that GreyStone has hosted the OVC Men's and Women's Championships and the course will also host the event each of the next two seasons.
