COACHES THOUGHTS: Head Coach Garrett Clegg
"We are looking to bounce back after our performance in Vegas earlier this week. It's a quick turnaround but being up here at one of the world's premier golf resorts is incredible and we're excited to compete on Sheep Ranch. None of the boys have played the golf course and it should be a great week"
The Bandon Dunes Invitational is a three-day tournament consisting of 54 holes with 18 being played each day of the event. The event will take place at the Sheep Ranch golf course at the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, Ore.
