MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — The Blue Devils’ men’s golf team play their third tournament in as many weeks, as they travel to Myrtle Beach, S.C., to participate in the 2023 General Hackler Championship. The 14-team event is held at the Dunes Golf and Beach Club, a 7,233 yard, par-72 course.
Duke is joined in the field by hosts Coastal Carolina, Auburn, Charlotte, East Carolina, East Tennessee State, Furman, Kent State, Liberty, Louisville, NC State, North Florida, South Carolina and Virginia. The Blue Devils are currently ranked 36th in Golfweek’s top-50 and are joined in the field by seven other top-50 teams.
Competing for the Blue Devils this week are Ian Siebers, Luke Sample, Kelly Chinn, William Love and Ethan Evans. Additionally, Jimmy Zheng joins his teammates in South Carolina, competing as an individual.
Sample is coming off a tie for second place last week at the Wake Forest Invitational at Pinehurst No. 2, finishing with an even-par, 210, over the 54 holes of play. Siebers carded the low round of the event for the Blue Devils with a first-round 67 (-3) en route to his sixth top-25 finish this season.
The first two rounds of the tournament are played on Monday, starting with a 9:30 a.m. shotgun start. Duke plays alongside Auburn, South Carolina and Coastal Carolina for the first two rounds and starts on holes No. 2-4. The third-round pairings and tee times are determined by standings after the first day of competition.
As a team this season, Duke has claimed two victories, finished second or better in four tournaments and seventh or better in six tournaments.
