Men's Golf Ready To Defend Cabo Collegiate Title
The Sun Devil men's golf team will try and defend its 2020 Cabo Collegiate Title in San Antonio March 1-3, but this year due to travel restrictions and COVID the event will be held at TPC San Antonio's Oaks Course (par 72/7,034 yards).
Valero Texas Open officials will offer an exemption to the medalist to compete in San Antonio's PGA TOUR event, scheduled for March 29-April 4. The 16-team field features six of the nation's top 10 teams and 11 of the top 35 including No. 1 Arizona, No. 3 Arizona State, No. 4 Florida State, No. 7 Oklahoma, No. 8 Oklahoma State, No. 10 Texas, No. 15 Texas A&M, No. 21 Texas Tech, No. 23 Houston, No. 27 Baylor, No. 30 Stanford and No. 31 Arkansas. Rounding out the field are Abilene Christian, Cal, Rice and UT San Antonio.
The tournament started in 2010 and ASU has competed in it three times. Besides its 2020 title it finished second in 2019 and fourth in 2018.

ABOUT THE 2020 CABO COLLEGIATE TITLE
Down a few strokes, the Arizona State men's golf team -- playing without senior All-American Chun An Yu, as he was getting ready to compete in the Arnold Palmer Invitational that same week -- didn't let a chance to win one of the best tournaments in men's college golf slip away last year. The Sun Devils got 3-under-68s from freshman David Puig, sophomore Cameron Sisk and freshman Ryggs Johnston and jumped 36-hole leader Arizona in tough wind to take an 8-stroke victory at 20-under-par 832 (281-277-274). Their third-round total of 274 was 10-under-par. Arizona State and Texas A&M were the only teams to break par in the windiest conditions of the three-day event. The ASU counting scores by Johnston (freshman from Libby, Mont.), Puig (freshman from Spain), Sisk (sophomore from San Diego, Calif.,, and the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year in 2019) were completed by a 1-under 70 from junior Mason Andersen (Chandler, Ariz.).
