"With such a demanding golf course and weather conditions, it's always interesting to see what kind of character and grit your players have. A top finish in a solid field has some positives for our team heading into the offseason. We had 3 guys finish in the top 18 which should give them some momentum going into the spring. Now it's time to train and prepare for March! " said Head Men's Golf Coach Jacob Miller.
