STARKVILLE, Miss. – Mississippi State wraps the fall slate 4,314 miles from home as the Bulldogs take their clubs to Hawaii for the Warrior Princeville Makai Invitational.

The three-day, 54-hole tournament from the par-72 7,223 yard Princeville Makai Golf Course will feature a crowded field of 18 teams.

Joining MSU from the Aloha State will be No. 27 Arizona State, No. 15 Baylor, Boise State, Cal Poly State, Cal State, No. 43 East Tennessee State, Idaho, Louisville, Middle Tennessee, Ole Miss, Pepperdine, San Francisco, San Diego, UC Santa Barbara and Utah. Host school Hawaii will put two squads on the course.

“There is probably not a better way to end the fall semester season than a trip to Hawaii,” Head coach Clay Homan said.  “We are a team that has yet to play anywhere close to our level of expectations, but in golf, things can change very quickly. Sometimes you learn more when you get knocked down, but I know we have five guys that fully expect to go out and compete to win this event."

MSU will have the senior quartet of Chad Ramey, Joe Sakulpolphaisan, Barrett Edens and Axel Boasson on the team card, along with sophomore Ben Wood.

Boasson is making his first appearance since the Sept. 21 Dick’s Sporting Goods Collegiate Challenge Cup.

Propelled by a 1-under 143, Wood turned in the best finish of his Bulldog career with a tie for sixth place at last week’s Bridgestone Golf Collegiate.

The Bulldogs have not competed in Hawaii since the 2008 Turtle Bay Resort College Intercollegiate.

Homan’s squad will play 18 holes Monday beginning at 11:30 a.m. CST.
