Pride men’s golf star Ben Nihart will take to the course over break in the prestigious Patriot All-American Invitational. The Invitational is a 54-hole collegiate golf tournament consisting of Division I, II and III PING All-Americans from the previous season. Nihart is expected to compete against some of the top amatuer players in the world, representing top Division I schools, such as, Stanford, Oklahoma State, UCLA and Georgia Tech. The event will take place on December 28-30 at Wigwam Golf Club in Litchfield Park in Phoenix, AZ.
In cooperation with the Folds of Honor Foundation, each participant in the Patriot All-America Invitational will represent a fallen service member. Each player in the field will receive a bag with the name of a fallen military member. At the conclusion of the event, the bags will be auctioned off with all of the proceeds going to the Folds of Honor Foundation which provides post-secondary educational scholarships for children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving our great nation.
Nihart had an All-American year as a junior, leading Greensboro to the NCAA Division III National Championship. The Pride entered his senior campaign this fall as the top ranked team in the nation. After a strong finish to the semester, Greensboro will kick up its title defense in the spring.
