NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The (RV) Notre Dame men’s golf team looks to carry its momentum from securing the Fighting Irish Classic championship last week into Monday’s AutoTrader Collegiate Classic. The Irish will get things started via a 8:30 a.m. ET shotgun start at the Berkeley Hills Country Club on Oct. 16.  

THE TOURNAMENT
The 7th Annual AutoTrader Collegiate Classic takes place at the Berkeley Hills Country Club (Par 72, 6,694 yards) in Duluth, Georgia. The course was designed by Gary Player and Ron Kirby and has a reputation for having some of the fastest, smoothest greens in the Atlanta area. The greens are Champion Bermuda Ultradwarf grass and are protected by relatively deep bunkers.

Monday will feature two rounds of play commencing at 8:30 a.m. ET via a shotgun start. Notre Dame is paired with Lipscomb, Boston College and Yale.

Tuesday’s final round will begin on holes No. 1 and No. 10 at 8 a.m. Lastly, live scoring will be made available at golfstat.com.

THE FIELD
Georgia State, Augusta, Boston College, Bowling Green, Chattanooga, Davidson, Francis Marion, Georgia Southern, Kansas, Lipscomb, Mississippi State, UNC Greensboro, Notre Dame, Richmond, Winthrop, and Yale. 

THE FIGHTING IRISH FIVE
Davis Chatfield, Ben Albin, Miguel Delgado, Hunter Ostrom and Kevin Conners will represent the Irish at the AutoTrader Collegiate Classic, while John Felitto will compete as an individual.

Chatfield is fresh off a third place finish at the Fighting Irish Classic, where he shot a 205 (-5). It marked the best finish and lowest score to date for the freshman. Junior Ben Albin still boasts the lowest round average on the team with a 70.7 and is five-under par overall on the year.

After shooting even-par for both the Badger Invitational and Shoal Creek Intercollegiate, Delgado notched a one-over par at the Fighting Irish Classic. The junior is averaging 214.3 strokes per tournament this fall.

Ostrom is coming off his best outing, producing two rounds under-par at The Warren before finishing in a tie for fourth place with a 206 (-4). Meanwhile, Conners shot a 210 at the Fighting Irish Classic and is averaging 217.3 per tournament.

THE ROAD HERE
The Irish took first place in the 13-team field of the Fighting Irish Classic on Oct. 9. It marked the third time in the 12-year history of the tournament in which Notre Dame brought home the title. In addition, the Irish shattered the tournament record by shooting 18-under par.

The win also marked Notre Dame’s second top-four finish this fall, improving their overall record to 30-8-0.
