Club golf has brought the game of golf back to the University of Pittsburgh, where the sport had been dead for over 20 years. We’re all grateful to the NCCGA for giving us the opportunity to continue playing competitive golf in college.
My name is Michael "Mo" Opacic, I am a passionate golfer and sports fan from Pittsburgh. am currently a Junior at Robert Morris University working toward a degree in Marketing. My passion for golf began at a very young age and has only grown stronger. Playing at various courses around the country has been instrumental and beneficial. My future career path is sure to include golf in some capacity, as I am working towards a position in the industry this summer. You can reach me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
A region that started in the fall of 2013 from the split of the former Northeast region consisting of teams in the Pittsburgh, Eastern Ohio, Central PA, and Northern West Virginia. The Atlantic region offers great tournament locations such as previous venues of St. Jude Golf Club, Pheasant Ridge, and The Links at Spring Church. Robert Morris University and Pitt earned a spot into the first ever National Invitational and claiming a 3rd and 6th place finish at the Paiute Golf Resort in Las Vegas. Spring of 2018 we saw, RMU earn yet another NIT invite and placed T2 as a team. Matt Vona (RMU) was the medalist shooting a two day total of 147 (+5). This past fall in Myrtle Beach, RMU made a return to the NIT and had a strong showing with a 2nd place finish highlighted by a T7 finish by Tanner Kutek. Last semester, RMU finished with two regional wins and a second place finish at the National Invitational. RMU returned strong as ever for the spring winning both regional tournaments and making a trip to Indiana for the National Championship where they finished 17th. Robert Morris took home the regional crown again this fall and made a return appearance to the National Championship in Oklahoma. Pittsburgh also had a strong season winning the first regional tournament of the fall.
