Men's Golf and baseball just got a little less deep:
  • Closer Tyler Maloof will be out for at least a month with a muscle strain in his arm. Maloof tied the single season save record last year, but had a big ERA. We were looking to have him get stronger in close situations. Now we might not have him available until well into the SEC schedule. Blake Dieterich and Bryan Benzor are the top candidates to get the ball for now.
  • Bryden Macpherson has decided to withdraw from school and take up golf as a profession. Macpherson qualified for The Masters with a win in last year's British Amateur Open. Macpherson was the SEC Freshman of the year and a big part of our National Championship runner up finish last year. I expect to hear some muffled 'Go Dawgs' when he tees it up in Augusta.

both of these hurt significantly. Benzor will definitely get the ball in that roll for now. We are going to need some freshman to develop quickly.

We also brought a closer in from Furman in the offseason. He had saves against UGA and South Carolina last year. My guess is that he will get a shot.

Bryden won't be teeing it up at Augusta unless he waits until after the Masters to turn pro officially. The amateur invites are only valid if the competitor retains amateur status during the tournament.
