COACHES THOUGHTS: Head Coach Garrett Clegg
"We're really excited to get back after a rough first tournament. It is a great opportunity to play eight of our players and I felt like we had a fantastic week of practice. The weather allowed us to be outside a couple of days and the boys are ready to compete. It should be a fun week."
Pat Hicks Thunderbird Invitational is a three-day tournament consisting of 54 holes with 18 being played each day. The tournament will begin Saturday February 6 and run through Monday, February 8. Players will tee off at 9:00 a.m. MT with a shotgun start format.
