WSU Men's Golf Head Coach Dustin White on the PING Cougar Classic
"From a scheduling standpoint, this is something we haven't done before. Normally we would have a tournament in early April, come back to Pullman, and have two weeks before we go out for the Pac-12 Championship. I think it's going to be good for us to be on the road and play our way to the conference championship. It's been a while since we've been to Provo, but it will be a good course for us. It's fairly traditional. The guys are ready to get out there and play after not playing in a tournament for three weeks. Getting back into tournament mode will be great. There will be some great teams there, so it will be some good prep before Pac-12's.
