The University of Utah men's golf team will hit the links only one more time in the fall and it will be at the Isleworth Collegiate, which will take place from Sunday through Tuesday at the Isleworth Golf and Country Club in Isleworth, Fla.
This is the second straight year UCF is hosting this event and in the 2021 edition, it was one of Utah's Pac-12 rivals that posted the top score. Arizona State's mark of 11-under allowed them to finish two shots ahead of second-place Illinois, but the Illini's Piercen Hunt did card the competition's best individual score at 7-under.
For the Utes, this is their second trip of the season to the east coast after starting the month with 54 holes at the Hamptons Intercollegiate in East Hampton, N.Y. The team placed sixth in that event and three players finished inside the top 20, led by Javier Barcos in seventh.
There will be 15 teams in Isleworth trying to bring home the hardware, with Utah, California and Arizona representing the Pac-12. The rest of the field consists of Central Florida, North Florida, West Virginia, Augusta, Illinois, South Carolina, Minnesota, UNLV, Purdue, Auburn, LSU and Florida.
The five Utes who will be teeing off in Florida are Javier Barcos, Hunter Howe, Braxton Watts, Martín León and Tanner Telford.
COACHES THOUGHTS: Head Coach Garrett Clegg
"This is an incredible event. We haven't had a good season to this point and hopefully we can pull ourselves together and find a way to finish the fall strong."
The Utes have steadily improved their finishes in each tournament so far in the fall and they continued that trend at the Oregon State Invitational, where they placed fifth and shot 6-over on the final day to move up two spots and take fifth place.
No one was in better form in Corvallis than junior Javier Barcos, who earned the first win of his collegiate career, shooting 4-under to take the top spot by a single shot. Barcos started the competition by posting a 4-under 67, matching the lowest round score by a Utah player in 2022-23 and good enough to tie him for first. After slipping to second by shooting 1-over in the second round, Barcos spent the tournament's final day carding a 1-under 70 and jumping back to the top of leaderboard to take home the trophy.
Brandon Robison, Tanner Telford and Davis Johnson also played their best golf in the final round, while Hunter Howe's work as an individual earned him a tie for 17th.
The Isleworth Collegiate will begin at 8 a.m. on Sunday and take place over three days, with 18 holes being played on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
