Bulldogs Look For Fifth Top 5 Of The Season In Mobile
The South Alabama-hosted tourney will begin with a 36-hole shotgun start on Monday, Feb. 18, followed by the final 18 holes on Tuesday from the par-72, 7,212-yard Magnolia Groves Crossing Golf Course.
"We look forward to bouncing back in Mobile on Monday and playing like we are capable of," Head Coach Clay Homan said. "We know that if we capitalize inside of 100 yard we will contend to win. This week will be a great test with five teams inside the top 30 and several other solid teams competing."
The Bulldogs will join 15 other teams at Magnolia Groves, four of which will be from the Southeastern Conference. In-state foe Southern Miss will also join the Bulldogs this Monday.
The Maroon and White are hoping the return to Mobile will have the same success as previous trips to Magnolia Groves, as MSU won back in 2009 and former Bulldog Alex Rowland won a share of the title last year.
The same starting five will fill out the Bulldogs scorecard in Mobile: junior Chad Ramey, junior Joe Sakulpolphaisan, junior Axel Boasson, senior Robi Calvesbert and sophomore Fletcher Johnson will take the trip.
Ramey was the only Bulldog traveling to Mobile that played in the tourney last year; the Fulton, Miss., native finished 15th last spring.
Also traveling with MSU will be freshman Ben Woods and junior Barrett Edens, who will be competing as individuals. The two Bulldogs will play from the par 71, 7,158-yard Magnolia Grove Falls Golf Course in only two rounds.
