Oct. 8, 2017

QUEENS, N.Y. -The St. John’s men’s golf team returns to action on Monday with a trip to Ellington, Conn., to participate in the Connecticut Cup.

The Johnnies saw success at the Connecticut Cup in 2016, when Gerald Mackedon edged out Boston College’s, Matt Naumec in a thrilling one-hole playoff for his first-ever collegiate victory. The reigning champ will look to hold on to his title starting as the number one golfer for the Red Storm on Monday.

Junior Andrew Beak will be playing in the no. 2 slot followed by Ross Moore, James Smoot and Matthew Sweeney. Jonathan Spicci will compete in the individual portion of the tournament.
