Wildcats Look to Carry Momentum at The Prestige
LA QUINTA, Calif. – Arizona Men's Golf will return to action for the first time since winning the Arizona Intercollegiate for a fourth consecutive year when it participates in The Prestige in Southern California beginning on Monday, Feb. 15. Arizona will look to carry its momentum from its victory in its last event as senior Brad Reeves won the individual championship in the team's home event last month.
"We are fortunate to be a part of this field that includes 24 teams," said head coach Jim Anderson. "There are a lot of programs throughout the country trying to get into events like this one, and there is a lot of great competition in this field. Coming off a team win, as well as an individual win, our guys have a lot of confidence. We saw a lot of competition in qualifying this week, and I am excited to see our guys back on the course in Palm Springs."
The Wildcats will bring a lineup of Trevor Werbylo, Chase Sienkiewicz, Briggs Duce, David Laskin and Brad Reeves to the event. This group posted notable scores during team qualifying this week, including Werbylo's round of 61 at Sewailo Golf Club and Sienkiewicz shooting a 62 at Tucson Country Club.
UArizona enters The Prestige ranked 11th in the Bushnell/Golfweek Coaches Poll and is one of eight Pac-12 programs playing in the event.
The 2021 edition of The Prestige is hosted by UC Davis on the Greg Norman Course at PGA West, which measures at 7,100 yards with Par 71.
