Just as it began dusting itself off from Hurricane Frances, USF’s golf course, known as The Claw, sustained even more damage from Hurricane Jeanne.
The course, where USF golf practices are held, lost a large palm tree near the first tee box and is littered with loads of debris.
“It’s going to take a while to clean that up,” men’s coach Jim Fee said. “But we’ll find an area that’s suitable.”
In recent action, the USF men’s golf team settled for 12th place in the Adams Cup Invitational after heavy fog canceled the final round Tuesday in Providence.
The Bulls finished 41 strokes behind winner Michigan State.
The tournament, which included 13 schools, had its third round canceled with five holes left to play. Only scores through the second round were counted.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
