COVID-19 puts abrupt ending to hopeful golf season

As the men’s golf team completed their practice round at the BIG EAST golf championship at Callawassie Island Club, head coach Steve Bailey was eager for another chance at a championship win. However, like all other events this spring, the men’s golf season came to a halt.

“There was really no script on how to handle (this). It was a hard message to have to give,” Bailey, who was among the first on the team to receive the news from the university’s sports administration, said.

The four-time BIG EAST Coach of the Year said the news brought a “roller coaster of emotions for the team” as their run for a back-to-back BIG EAST title was impeded.
