Men’s golf will start its season Monday at the Sam Hall Intercollegiate in Hattiesburg, Miss.

The team will bring back four of their top five players, only losing Charlie MacNeal. Cleveland Golf/Scrixon All-America Scholar Mason Seaborn looks to lead this year’s crop of players as the only senior. 

Seaborn was named second team all-conference during his junior year. 

Juniors Velten Meyer and Greg Smail are also returning from last year’s top five along with sophomore Calum Hill.

“If we can build on we did last season, I think we’ll be pretty successful,” Seaborn said.

That successful year saw the Warhawks begin the season ranked 205th in the country. 

After the season, ULM has moved into the top 100 at the 96th position.

That would have not been possible if not for last year’s set of three wins at the Quail Valley Collegiate Invitational, First Tee Tournament and the ULM Wallace Jones Invitational.

Impressive as last year may have been, Head coach Walt Williams said that there is really no particular way to carry that momentum over.

 “If I could say some magic words to make everybody play better I would have learned them by now. There’s really no magic bullets of secret formulas,” Williams said.

Williams has been coaching for 25 years. 

The fall schedule includes this week’s tournament, the Cardinal Intercollegiate at Louisville, the Miramont Invitational at Rice and exhibition against Louisiana Tech in Choudrant and the Quaill Valley Invitation in Vero Beach, Florida.
