The Youngstown State men's golf team will face a quick turnaround when it begins play in the 2018 Joe Feaganes Marshall Invitational at Guyan Golf and Country Club in Huntington, W. Va. on Monday.

The Penguins are scheduled to compete for four straight days after playing the Fuzzy Zoeller Intercollegiate in Indiana on Saturday and Sunday. The team traveled directly to West Virginia Sunday evening after finishing the final two rounds at Champions Pointe Golf Club.

The field will include 14 other teams including Marshall (host), Belmont, Davidson, Dayton, Eastern Kentucky, George Washington, Longwood, Northern Kentucky, Ohio, St. Francis (Pa.), VCU, Wichita State, William & Mary and Wright State.

YSU will play with a five-man lineup and one player will compete as an individual. The official lineup has yet to be announced but the six players competing for the Penguins will be C.J. Hughes, Ken Keller, Bryan Kordupel, Jason McQuown, Kevin Scherr and Justin Stark.

The Penguins finished ninth at the 2017 Joe Feaganes Marshall Invitational and posted the lowest 36-hole team performance in program history with a 576.

The course will play approximately 6,573 yards and par is 71. The teams are slated to play 36 holes on Monday with a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m. before returning to play the final 18 on Tuesday beginning at 8:30. Live scoring will be available at or via the BirdieFire mobile app.

The tournament is named for Joe Feaganes who coached the Marshall men's golf team from 1972-2002.
