Keiser University College of Golf (COG) students recently participated in the National Collegiate Club Golf Association (NCCGA) Golf Team tryouts held at the PGA National Golf Resort & Spa.
Students Ben Warner, William Graves, Austin Corcimiglia, and James O’Hara earned positions on the Club Team after playing qualifying rounds on the Palmer and Squire golf courses. They join Christian Brown, Brad Costa, Andrew Abbott, and Matthew Kreider, who qualified with outstanding play in the first regional tournament won by the Seahawks.
Coach Frank Longabucco has high hopes for a second straight Regional victory and a 7th consecutive invitation to the NCCGA National Tournament on November 19th and 20th, stating “This is the strongest team we have had so far, and we look forward to the challenge.”
The NCCGA is comprised of over three hundred Universities nationwide. Thirty teams qualify regionally to participate in the National Tournament. The Keiser University Seahawks are currently ranked 17th in the nation after the first Regional Tournament and hope to improve their ranking after the next event. Coach Longabucco has scheduled short game and course management clinics for his players in the next two of weeks leading up to the next competition. Good luck Seahawks!
