Charlottesville, Va. - The Virginia men's golf team makes its annual spring break trek to South Carolina for a pair of tournaments. The Cavaliers return to play Monday, March 5 at the 21st Annual Cleveland Golf Palmetto Intercollegiate. The 54-hole event runs through Tuesday and will be contested at the historic Palmetto Golf Club.

The tournament will feature a 6,617-yard, par-70 setup. The first two rounds of the event will be played on Monday. The tournament will conclude with a single round on Tuesday. The Palmetto Golf Club was founded in 1892 and it is recognized as the fourth oldest golf course in the United States.

In addition to host USC Aiken and Virginia, this year's field includes Akron, Army, Augusta, Coastal Carolina, East Carolina, Francis Marion, Furman, Georgia Southern, Manhattan, Memphis, Presbyterian, Temple, UAB, VCU, William & Mary and Wofford.

Virginia's lineup features senior Danny Walker (Bradenton, Fla.). sophomore Andrew Orischak (Hilton Head Island, S.C.), junior Thomas Walsh (High Point, N.C.), sophomore Ashton Poole (Charlotte, N.C.) and freshman Jimmie Massie (Lynchburg, Va.).

Walsh currently leads UVA with a 71.53 stroke average. He is coming off a fifth-place finish at the John Burns Intercollegiate where UVA opened its spring season with a fourth-place showing.

The Cavaliers placed second at last year's Palmetto Intercollegiate as senior Derek Bard captured medalist honors, beating eventual U.S. Amateur Champion Doc Redman of Clemson in a playoff.

UVa will remain on the road during the school's spring break period to compete at the General Hackler Championship March 10-11 in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
