- Southern Miss men's golf coach Jerry Weeks
announced the release of the Golden Eagles' 2014-15 schedule on Friday.
The Golden Eagles will begin their fall season when they host the 12th annual Sam H. Hall Intercollegiate at Hattiesburg Country Club on September 8-9. The field will play 36 holes on Monday, September 9, and the final 18 on Tuesday, September 10. Southern Miss is looking to win the team championship for just the second time and the first since 2004.
"We have a great schedule lined up this year," said Weeks. "We begin with our own event, the Sam Hall Intercollegiate. In the past, we've played four events in the fall. But this year, we will play five. It will give us a good opportunity to get the season going.
