Nagy To Tee It Up In Elite Jones Cup

Charlotte 49ers golfer Corey Nagy will tee it up this weekend in the Jones Cup, a 28-player event at Ocean Forest Golf Club at Sea Island, Ga.

It's a testament to Nagy's place among the top amateur players that he earned an invitation to the special event. The 54-hole event has developed an international reputation for the quality of its field and its setting.

Former Clemson golfer Kyle Stanley won the event last year.

"The Jones Cup is among the very best amateur golf tournaments in the country and has once again attracted an elite field for the event," Charlotte golf coach Adam Pry said in a statement. "After taking a short break from competition, this is a great opportunity for Corey to compete on a championship course, against the best amateurs in the world."
