The Utah Men's golf team will be looking to finish its regular season on a high note when they make the short trip to Provo, Utah to compete in the BYU Cougar Classic. The two-day tournament will begin Friday, April 23 and end on Saturday, April 24. The event will be held at the Riverside Country Club where the team will search for their sixth top-10 finish in just seven spring tournaments.
Utah will compete among a field of 19 teams which includes San Francisco, New Mexico, San Diego, Boise State, Nevada, St. Mary's, Loyola Marymount, UNLV, Colorado State, Santa Clara, Denver, Wyoming, Utah Valley, Gonzaga, Dixie State, Air Force, New Mexico State and BYU.
The Utes five-man lineup will consist of senior Mitchell Schow, juniors Tristan Mandur and Blake Tomlinson, and freshmen Javier Barcos and Jesper von Reedtz.
COACHES THOUGHTS: Head Coach Garrett Clegg
"After a solid week in Arizona we are excited to compete in our home state. Riverside Country Club is a good golf course that will be in excellent condition. Typically, it is a course where you can go low. The Cougar has a lot of great history to it and this year's field is strong. The golf course and tournament will be a great warm up for the Pac-12 Championship."
The BYU Cougar Classic is a two-day tournament consisting of 54 holes with 36 being played the first day and the final 18 on the second. The event will take place on April 23rd and 24th with the first golfers teeing off at 8:00 a.m. MT and the first Ute at 9:40 a.m. MT on Friday.
LAST TIME OUT
The Utes competed in the Thunderbird Collegiate April 16-17 where they finished in a tie for sixth place after shooting 22-under (830), which was the third lowest team score on record at Utah. The event was held at the Papago Golf Club in Phoenix, Ariz. where two Utes really showed out. First it was Tomlinson, who led the team and finished in a three-way tie for first to capture a share of his third-career tournament title. He also shot 12-under (201) to tie for the lowest 54-hole individual score on record at Utah, a record that he himself previously set at the Pat Hick Invitational back in February. Schow also had a strong performance as he shot 6-under (207) to finish in a tie for 16th and his 207 is the second lowest 54-hole score of his career.
