PROVO, Utah — BYU men’s golf will return to the course on Monday for the Nevada Wolfpack Classic at Hidden Valley Country Club in Reno, Nevada.
The Cougars opened the season by finishing second at the Olympic Club Intercollegiate, followed by a fifth-place finish at the William H. Tucker Intercollegiate.
“We had a great five-round qualifier over the last two weeks and the team is playing great golf,” said BYU director of golf Todd Miller. “We have a mature and talented team, so now is time for them to make a statement and set the tone for how we are going to play the rest of this season.”
Following an almost three week break from competition, Carson Lundell, David Timmins, Tyson Shelley, Zac Jones and Max Brenchley look to earn the Cougars' first win of the young season. Elijah Turner will be playing as an individual for BYU.
To do that, the Cougars will need to take down host Nevada, Colorado, Fresno State, LMU, New Mexico, Saint Mary’s, San Diego, SDSU, San Francisco, UCLA and UNLV.
The 54-hole championship will be played at the 7,302-yard Hidden Valley Country Club with the first 36 holes being played Monday, Oct. 10 and the final round on Tuesday, Oct. 11. BYU will tee off in round one at 9 a.m. PDT with Colorado, Fresno State and WCC foe LMU.
“Last year, we played this event in cold and windy conditions, with even an occasional snow flurry,” said Miller. “The weather looks much better this year, so we will be playing a completely different course that plays a lot like Riverside Country Club.”
