Eagles ranked No. 3 Team in 2019 Bushnell/Golfweek Preseason Poll

NORMAN, Okla. — After finishing fourth in the 2019 NJCAA National Championships, the Kirkwood Eagles earn the preseason No. 3 ranking in the opening Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Poll after receiving 52 first place voting points.

The Eagles return two of their starting five from the 2018-19 season.  James Morgan and Ben Epperly will look to lead Kirkwood to another successful season. During the 2018-19 campaign, Morgan was Regional XI Medalist, and Epperly was elected to the All-Freshmen team in NJCAA DII.

The defending National Champion South Mountain will open the season as the No. 1 team after unanimously receiving all seven first-place votes. Mississippi Gulf Coast ranks second, and Walters State and Murray State, rounding out the Top-5.
