COACHES THOUGHTS: Head Coach Garrett Clegg
"We always love making the trip to Bandon. Each player traveling has played multiple courses on the property and will be comfortable with the different grasses and conditions that Bandon Trails will present to us. We have been off for almost a month now and it will be great to get back to tournament golf. I feel like each of our players is capable of having a great event and I know they have all been counting down the days to get on this trip."
The Bandon Dunes Championship is a three-day tournament consisting of 54 holes with 18 being played each day. This year's tournament will take place at that Bandon Trails Course of the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. The tournament will begin Sunday, March 7 and run through Tuesday, March 9. Players will tee off at 9:30 a.m. MT with a shotgun start format.
LAST TIME OUT
Back in early February, Utah competed in and won the Pat Hicks Invitational. It was a record-breaking victory as the team recorded the lowest 54-hole team score on record shooting 41-under par (823). Tomlinson finished 1st among the field after posting a score of 15-under (201) and broke a record with the lowest 54-hole individual score on record at Utah. All five Utes finished inside the top-13 and set numerous personal best scores.
