Georgia golfers Connor Creasy, Spencer Ralston, and Davis Thompson will compete in the Jones Cup Invitational this weekend. The prestigious amateur event will run Friday through Sunday at Ocean Forest Golf Club in Sea Island, Ga.

Ralston and Thompson will be paired together in the first round and will tee off at 10 a.m., followed by Creasy at 10:40 a.m. Second- and third-round pairings will be determined by the previous day’s results.

Creasy, a freshman from Abingdon, Va., appeared in three tournaments last fall for the Bulldogs. He came in 11th in The Carmel Cup.
