Colonial Men’s Return to Action Golf Set
The Colonial Country Club, home of the Charles Schwab Challenge of the PGA Tour and made famous by Fort Worth native and golf legend Ben Hogan, is close to Baylor’s head coach. Mike mcgraw.
âBen Hogan was my favorite player when I was a boy, and he kind of made Colonial famous,â he said. âIt’s just a classic old golf course with two or three really hard holes of golf, and then a lot of holes you can get, if you hit the fairway. It’s in as good shape right now as it is. ‘has been in years. “
The Bears will face a tough test in a field of nine teams ranked in the top 25 of the latest Division I Golfweek men’s standings.
âThe really exciting part, beyond the golf course, is the terrain,â McGraw said. âThese are some of the best teams in the SEC and the best teams in the Big 12, so it’s great ground on a championship course.â
Baylor’s roster will be a bit different from his first two events. The first three are household names, the juniors Johnny keefer and Luc Dossey lead things, followed by seniors Marc Reppe. The back-end of the training will have some new faces as a junior Scout McNealy will make his first career start in the squad roster as a freshman Zach Heffernan will make his college debut in fifth place.
âWe have two new players in the lineup: Zach Heffernan, a freshman from Boerne, and Scout [McNealy]”said McGraw.” Scout is a junior who has never played in a varsity event which is great. I’m excited for him. It’s a big deal when you play your first event for a Division One team. “
The 54-hole event kicks off Monday morning with a shotgun start at 8:30 am. Live statistics are available at golfstat.com. For more information on Baylor Men’s Golf, follow @BaylorMGolf on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook
