High Point, N.C.-- The 17th ranked North Greenville Men's Golf team has been voted third in the Conference Carolinas pre-season poll, as voted on by the league head coaches. The Crusaders ranked third behind defending champion #16 Erskine College and local rival Limestone.
Selected to finish third, the North Greenville men's golf team enters the 2015 season with a wealth of experience to lead the charge. Tucker MacDonald returns as the squad's only All-Conference performer, but Sam Goodnight also brings a solid presence North Greenville's starting five. MacDonald and Goodnight combined for three wins combined last season, on a team that went on to win that won five of the last 10 tournaments, dating back to last spring.
Adding to the strength of the two seniors is sophomore Christian Constance who is ranked 49th in all of Division II golf. Constance is riding a wave of momentum into the spring season, winning two tournaments during the fall slate. NGU will also rely on two solid freshmen in Evan Gfeller and Chase Fisher.
Gfeller was a solid option during the fall, setting the course record at the King Invitational, shooting a 62, which was also the lowest round shot in Division II golf this season. North Greenville men's golf enter the 2015 season ranked 17th by Golfstat.com
