COACHES THOUGHTS: Head Coach Garrett Clegg
"I'm excited to get the season going. We have a lot of experience returning and this is one of the best tournament fields we will play in all year. It will be a great measuring stick for where we are as a team and I'm excited to see us compete. Three of our players have played in this tournament before and are familiar with the golf course. I'm looking forward to a great start to the 2021-2022 season."
