The Ragin’ Cajun men’s golf team is ready to attack their next challenge.
With this challenge, only two members of the team will be gracing the green to tee off against some of the best in the amateur division. Louisiana’s own Micah Goulas and Charlie Flynn will be competing in the 113th Southern Amateur Championship.
A New Iberia native, Goulas started his 2018-19 season in good fashion. As the 2019 second-team- All-Louisiana selection and LSWA Newcomer of the Year, Goulas exploded with a 2-over-par 74 to earn his qualifying spot into the Championship from a 14-player field.
The Louisiana senior appeared in six events in stroke play. Goulas posted 73.81 in 16 rounds of golf play, three finishes in the top 25, and finished five rounds with a par or better. Louisiana Head Coach Theo Silman has already been impressed with the golfer and expects him to keep going.
“It’s been a very valuable year for him, as we saw him become very comfortable and acclimated to our program and Division I athletics,” Silman said. “I greatly look forward to his leadership this coming year as he and this team have high expectations for the 2019-20 season.”
Goulas will be accompanying Louisiana teammate Charlie Flynn. Flynn led the Ragin’ Cajuns as a freshman with a 73.27 scoring average and earned an exemption into the event by his first-place finish at the 2018 Southern Junior Championship.
The Louisiana sophomore finished twice in the top-20 during the season. Flynn also appeared in 12 events with a team-high 30 round. During his high school career, Flynn was rated as the No. 1 recruit in Louisiana with a 72.31 stroke average and competed in the Under Armor/Jordan Spieth championship along with many more prestigious tournaments.
These two Ragin’ Cajuns are ready for the Championship and are looking to reign in the top of the tournament. The 113th Southern Amateur Championship will be played at Chenal Country Club in Little Rock, Ark., on July 17-20.
