College Park - Following a 12-day break, the Terrapin men's golf team resumes regional play today with its second District II tournament of the spring season at the two-day, 36-hole Liberty Spring Classic at The Water's Edge Country Club in Penhook, Va. The Terps are part of a 14-team field that has 10 District II competitors, including three (St. John's, William & Mary and James Madison) with head-to-head victories over Maryland this year. Overall, the Terps hold a 20-3 head-to-head record against the field and another good showing would solidify the Terps' hold on one of the top rankings in District II, with the top four teams making the NCAA field.
The Terps then head south Friday to Carolina Country Club in Spartanburg, S.C. as part of a two-day, 54-hole Wofford Invitational field that includes seven of Division I's top 100 teams and 11 top-150 teams, according to Golfweek. The Terps claimed top-three finishes at Wofford in each of the last four years, including a team title in 2000, and a similar showing against the strong field would boost the team's strength of schedule rating. Senior Corey Brigham, who won individual honors at Wofford in 2001 with a seven-under-par total of 209, will look to defend his title and become the third straight Terrapin golfer to win at Wofford (Keith Unikel also won in 2000).
