Penn State Golf Seniors Moving Forward After Lost Season
For all five of Penn State golf's seniors, their college careers seemingly ended on a random Thursday in March. Four years would not culminate in a coveted national championship appearance due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Now they've found out they have the choice of going back to school for a fifth year, or continuing on with their post-graduate plans. For most, it means passing up job offers. For Ryan Davis, it could mean deferring his dream of playing professional golf.
