Men’s Golf Team Receives Votes in National Preseason Coaches’ Poll
The Golf World/Nike Golf NAIA College Preseason Coaches’ Poll was recently released with the Reinhardt University men’s golf team receiving votes. The poll combines resources of Golf World magazine, Nike Golf and the Golf Coaches Association of America.
Reinhardt, under veteran head coach Ken Dixon, tallied 22 points in the 2012 preseason poll to rank 30th nationally in the NAIA. The Eagles just missed a return trip to the NAIA National Championships last spring and finished rated No. 30 in the country with 44 points in the NAIA’s final 2011 poll. Oklahoma Christian University, which won its second NAIA national title in the past three years last season, is atop the preseason poll.
Reinhardt opens its 2011-12 season on Monday at the Montreat College Fall Invitational at Glen Cannon Country Club in Pisgah Forest, N.C. The two-day event also serves as the Appalachian Athletic Conference Fall Tournament.
