Charlottesville, VA – The 21st-ranked Virginia men’s golf team wraps up the 2010 regular season when it plays host to the 23rd annual Cavalier Classic at the par-72, 6,875-yard Birdwood Golf Course Saturday, May 1 and Sunday, May 2. The 36-hole tournament will feature 18 holes of competition each day with tee times starting at 8 a.m.

The 11-team field for this year’s tournament includes Appalachian State, Binghamton, George Mason, James Madison, Liberty, Longwood, Maryland, No. 34 NC State, Seton Hall, Tennessee State and Virginia. NC State’s Matt Hill, the 2009 NCAA Champion, will compete for the Wolfpack.

The Cavaliers are scheduled to begin play Saturday at 9:20 a.m. and will be paired with NC State and Liberty. UVa is coming off a second-place finish at the ACC Championships last weekend. The Cavaliers are led by sophomore Ben Kohles who sports a 71.13 stroke average and Will Collins, who is second on the team with a 72.40 stroke average. Collins was the runner-up at the ACC Championships.

South Carolina won last year’s tournament that was shortened to 18 holes when weather delays prevented the second round from being completed. The Gamecocks shot 286 to better Virginia by six shots. UNC Wilmington’s Josh Brock took medalist honors after shooting 67 in the only round that was completed by all teams.

Virginia won back-to-back titles in 2007 and 2008 and has won the tournament a total of six times. The Cavaliers also finished first in 1997, 1995, 1990 and 1988.
