The Youngstown State Men’s Golf Team will continue their fall program on Monday when they begin competing in the Joe Feaganes Marshall Invitational at Guyan Golf & Country Club in Huntington, W. Va.
The Penguins just finished in 13th place in the Turning Stone Tiger Intercollegiate season opener last week. Ken Keller led the team, finishing tied for 40th with a three-round score of 227 (75-73-79).
YSU will participate in the Marshall event for the seventh time in the past eight seasons. Most recently in 2019-20, the Penguins finished 10th with a total of 860 teams in three rounds. This performance ranks fifth in the lowest 54-hole team scores in program history. Kevin Scherr was fourth with a career low score of 204 in three rounds (64-69-71). The performance ranks as the second-lowest 54-hole score in school history. Scherr’s 64 (-7) first round is tied for the lowest second round in program history.
This season’s event will feature 14 other schools including Belmont, Bowling Green, Cleveland State, Dayton, Longwood, Marshall, Morehead State, Mount St. Mary’s, Northern Kentucky, Purdue Fort Wayne, Robert Morris, Stetson, Wright State and Xavier.
Head Coach Tony Joy has announced that YSU’s roster will include Keller, Scherr, Bryan Kordupel, Cole Christman and Cade Kreps. In addition, Jacob Sylak will compete individually.
The course will play for approximately 6,573 yards and the par is 71. Teams are expected to play 36 holes Monday and 18 Tuesday with shotgun tees set for 8:30 am each day. The live score will be available on Golfstat.com.
The tournament is named after Joe Feaganes, who coached the Marshall men’s golf team from 1972 to 2002.
