With the release of the 2017 schedule, anticipation is building for the the Tompkins Cortland golf season. Led by three returning all-conference performers from 2016 (Jack Myers, Collyn Shippos, and Antonio Triana) the Panthers will open the season on April 8 at the Columbia-Greene Tournament before coming home to host the Panther Invitational at Elm Tree Golf Course on April 9, the earliest date that Tompkins Cortland has hosted the annual tournament.
The 2017 schedule includes nine tournaments during the regular season before the College hosts the NJCAA Region III Championship May 8-9 at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course at Cornell University. The year ends with the NJCAA Division III National Championship tournament June 5-9 at the Chautauqua Golf Course. Both Shippos and Triana qualified for nationals last year, and the pair look to bring the whole team with them in 2017.

Coach McDaniel returned to the course for the 2014-15 year, bringing along some strong credentials. He previously coached Tompkins Cortland for more than a decade, putting together one of the most impressive runs of success of any Tompkins Cortland team in any sport. During a four year span, the Panthers won two Region III titles, never finished worse than third in the Region and had two top-seven finishes at nationals. He coached an individual national champion, a two-time All-American, three MSAC individual champions, and dozens of all-region and all-MSAC performers. Coach McDaniel has coached men and women golfers, including the College's first woman golfer to qualify for the national tournament, by working with each golfer on all facets of the game. His knowledge, experience, and coaching style translates to a positive experience for all his student athletes.

Tompkins Cortland Community College sophomore Kyle Shaw (Groton H.S./Groton) has quailed for the NJCAA Division III Golf National Championship for the second straight year. He fired a two-day score of 161 (80-81) at the Region III Championship, hosted by Tompkins Cortland at Cornell University’s Robert Trent Jones Golf Course, good enough for fifth-place overall and an invitation to the national tournament. Teammate Mike Timmerman II (Cortland H.S./Cortland) just missed out on joining Shaw at nationals, finishing tied for the last spot and then losing out on the fourth hole of a two-person playoff. Timmerman finished the tournament with a score of 167 (91-76) to tie for 14th overall, good enough to earn all-region honors.
The top two teams plus the next five best individual scores earn a place at nationals. The team title was won by Monroe Community College with a score of 641. The individual medalist honors went to Monroe’s Kyle Bromley with a 155 (80-75).
The national tournament is June 3-7 at Chautauqua Golf Club in Chautauqua, New York.
