It is a long course and should benefit us. We will get to play our irons a lot. Ryan Camp played well last week and is a top 25 caliber player every week. Isaac Woods is coming out of a little slump, but put together a very good round last week and is playing better. Jordan Madison played really well last week and is a solid player. Chad Carlson will be playing number four this week. Matt Fladwood has earned the opportunity to compete when the score counts by his showing last week. He is from Oregon and is very familiar with the course. Kevin Chen will also be competing with us.'
