The No. 18 USC men's golf team, paced by seniors Jordan Nasser and Joshua Wooding and a strong nucleus of underclassmen, opens the 2006-2007 season at the Inverness Intercollegiate Invitational on Monday and Tuesday (Sept. 11 and 12) at the Inverness C.C. in Toledo, Ohio.
The event consists of 54 holes (36 on Monday, 18 on Tuesday) of medal play with team and individual titles at stake. The tournament will be played on the Inverness par-71, 7,255-yard course. Founded in 1903, the Inverness Club will host the 2009 NCAA Men's Golf Championships and has hosted numerous prestigious tournaments including four U.S. Opens, one U.S. Amateur, the 1986 and 1993 PGA Championships and the 2003 U.S. Senior Open.
Wooding had USC's second-lowest stroke average (73.18) as a 2006 junior and posted five top 20 finishes while Nasser posted a pair of top 20 finishes in 10 tournaments as a 2006 junior. Both earned All-Pac-10 honorable mention honors.
First-year coach Chris Zambri and Director of Golf Kurt Schuette are also taking sophomore Tom Glissmeyer and freshmen Rory Hie and Jamie Lovemark on USC's first trip of the season. Glissmeyer competed in five tournaments as a freshman last season while Hie and Lovemark are two of the top incoming freshmen in the nation this season.
The 15-team field will play a practice round on Sunday (Sept. 10) and begins the 36-hole day on Tuesday with a shotgun start at 8 a.m. Final round play on Monday (Sept. 11) begins from 8 to 10 a.m. off the 1st and 10th tees.
