HEAD COACH GARRETT CLEGG SAYS
“After a good week at home, I am excited to see how we will compete on the road against an exceptional field. All of the players competing for us are familiar with the Olympic Course at Gold Mountain. It is a challenging venue and will require us to be on top of all aspects of our games to compete in the tournament. Last year Blake Snyder and Sang Lee each played really well in the tournament and we will need those two and Michael Anderson to lead our team on the course. We are looking forward to the challenge that is ahead of us.”
