Somerset, KY - Campbellsville University Somerset tees off its first season of competition in the fall of 2018. Under the direction of head coach John Rogers, the 2018 team looks to lay the foundation of the golf program at CU Somerset.
"We are proud to be the very first men's golf program for Campbellsville University Somerset," said Rogers. "We have a lot of potential and room to grow. Jalen, Joe, and Tyler are excited to play in their first competition. We are looking to use the Bill Sergent Invitational as a starting point to see where we are and what each individual player needs to improve on. By the end of the season we expect to see lots of improvement."
CU Somerset begins the golf program with golfers Joe Floyd, Jalen Molden, and Tyler Wethington. All three golfers were multi-sport athletes in high school. Floyd and Molden come to the Tigers from Southwestern High School in Pulaski County. Molden was the first golfer to sign with CU Somerset. He is pursuing a liberal arts and science degree. Floyd is a general business major.
Wethington is the first dual sport athlete in the history of CU Somerset as well as with CU regional athletics. He will golf in the fall before transitioning to a guard for the CU Somerset men's basketball team. Wethington is pursuing a career in teaching. He takes his first step in his journey while at CU Somerset and will obtain a degree in P-5 elementary education when his undergraduate career comes to an end.
"My goal is for the players to grow closer to Christ, obtain a four year degree that they can use to start their career path, and have the best possible collegiate golf experience."
The Maroon and White begin the season with the Bill Sergent Invitational on Sept. 10 and 11.
