THE COURSE

WEATHER FORECAST
Temperature highs in the lowers 70s are expected for both days of competition with a significant threat of precipitation forecasted for Monday morning (Sept. 26).

GRIMMER OFF TO A SOLID START
Will Grimmer closed out The Carmel Cup (Sept. 2-4) by dropping in six birdies in each of the final two rounds, posting subsequent scores of 68-69 to climb up into a share of 14th place overall. The sophomore placed higher than four Golfstat Top-100 players and his 13 total birdies ranked 13th in the entire field.

YEAR TWO OF THE MOSELEY ERA
Head coach Jay Moseley embarks on his second season handling the reins of Buckeye Men’s Golf. He, along with assistant coach Brad Smith, mentored a pair of All-Midwest Region honorees a season ago and coached since-graduated senior Tee-k Kelly to the first NCAA Regional individual title in program history and a subsequent trip to the NCAA Championships.

FRESH SEASON, FRESH FACES
The 2016-17 campaign brings three new players to the Ohio State roster, and all three made an immediate splash earning slots in the first Buckeye lineup on the season. Freshmen Caden Orewiler and Jeg Coughlin III, along with sophomore transfer Daniel Wetterch, were among the six student-athletes donning Scarlet & Gray out west in The Carmel Cup (Sept. 2-4).

All three are native Buckeyes hailing from the great state of Ohio. Coughlin captured an Ohio high school individual state title while Orewiler picked up First Team All-Ohio laurels. Wetterich played for Xavier University as a freshman in 2015-16 and was named both the BIG EAST Freshman of the Year and a member of the All-BIG EAST First Team.

TWO ALL-REGION PERFORMERS BACK FOR 2016-17
Will Grimmer joined Tee-k Kelly on the All-Midwest Region Team last year and returns for his sophomore campaign as a Buckeye. Senior Clark Engle is an All-Midwest Region honoree as well, receiving that distinction following the 2014-15 season.

COLUMBUS HOSTING 2018 NCAA REGIONAL
The Ohio State University is one of six host sites for the 2018 NCAA Men’s Golf Regionals. The three-day event will be played on the OSU Golf Club’s Scarlet Course from May 14-16, 2018.
