As the son of Scottish parents, Tait...

His 4-under-par, 71-69-72-212 performance at the Hartford Hawks Invitational on Sept. 18-19 was the sixth best out of 116 individual...

Big questions surround the men’s and women’s golf teams in the early weeks of September. The clear question on the men’s team is if and how it will be able to replace Lloyd Jefferson Go, a player Pirates’ head coach Clay White called “the eraser” because of his ability to make up for his teammates’ mistakes. Go left Seton Hall as arguably the best golfer to play for the Pirates, and according to White, replacing him will have to be a...
