Coach Dustin White's on the Fighting Irish Classic: "We've done some qualifying and have been focused on controlling what we can and managing our way around the golf course better. We made a good amount of birdies in week one, but gave some away with simple mistakes. The guys are ready to get back into a tournament and make it happen. Going to Notre Dame will be a good test of golf, but fun at the same time to see a new golf course and what South Bend is all about."
Last Time Out: The Washington State men's golf team finished the Husky Invitational in a tie for ninth place on the team leaderboard, as the Cougars shot an 873 (+9) through three rounds at the Gold Mountain Golf Club.
