The College of Mount St. Joseph men's golf team began its 2013-14 campaign with a first place finish at the Transylvania University Fall Invitational. The Lions recorded a two-round score of 588, out-pacing runner-up Rhodes College (591), who was ranked as the pre-season #11 team in the country, and Wittenberg University (592). Host Transylvania University, the pre-season #1 team, finished with a 601. The Mount shot a one-under par 287 first round and 301 in the second round en route to the win in Lexington, KY.
