The Commodores have been active in recruiting and signing golfers from the Southeast with four from Florida, adding a Georgian brings the total on the team to two, a golfer from Alabama and the newest signees from Tennessee. International signees are not uncommon in the NCAA, but this makes only the second golfer on this squad to be from out of the country.
The women had a great fall season, winning the Mason Rudolph, and briefly holding the top rank in the country before settling into a top five position. They only have one senior on this year’s squad, in addition to one junior, three sophomores, and two freshmen.
