Three Kentucky Men’s Golf Alumni in Field for ISCO Championship

NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. – The PGA Tour returns to the greater Lexington area, July 11-14, with three Kentucky men’s golf alumni in the field for the ISCO Championship at Keene Trace Golf Club’s Champions Course.

Alex Goff ’24, Cooper Musselman ’18 and Stephan Stallings Jr. ’17 will all tee it up on a familiar track with 300 FedEx Cup points and a $4 million purse on the line.

The start will mark the PGA Tour debut for Alex Goff, who just recently put the finishing touches on one of the best seasons in Kentucky men’s golf program history. Goff was named the 11th All-American in program history after posting a 70.55 scoring average, the program’s best single season mark since at least 1993-94. He finished his collegiate career with 80 rounds of par-or-better, one win, six runner-up results and 30 top-20s.

Musselman, a native of Louisville, Kentucky, is making his third appearance at the ISCO Championship and first since 2019. He made the cut and placed T57 at the tournament in 2018 with a four-round total of 7-under par.  At UK, Musselman had a 72.91 scoring average, and was the individual champion at the Crooked Stick Intercollegiate his senior year.

The PGA Tour veteran of the group, Stallings Jr. has played in 12 events on tour including four ISCO Championships. His best finish at the tournament came back in 2019 when he was T45 at 11-under. Stallings Jr., who is also a Louisville native and was high school teammates with Musselman, owned a collegiate scoring average of 74.27 while playing in 35 events with the Wildcats.

First and second round tee times for the 2024 ISCO Championship can be seen here. Stallings will lead off the Kentucky contingent at 8:24 a.m. on Thursday on hole No. 10. Goff will follow with a back-nine start at 8:57 a.m., with Musselman beginning his championship on hole No. 1 at 2:22 p.m. On Friday, Musselman will tee off at 8:57 a.m., Stallings at 1:49 p.m. and Goff at 2:22 p.m.

This year’s field consists of 156 players including the likes of Joel Dahmen, Kevin Kisner, Daniel Berger, J.J. Spaun, Camilo Villegas, C.T. Pan and more. Following Friday’s second round there will be a cut to the top 65 players and ties.

The tournament, which is under a new title sponsor in 2024, has been contested dating back to 2015. Past champions include Scott Piercy, Aaron Baddeley, Grayson Murray, Troy Merritt, Jim Herman and Seamus Power, among others.
