CINCINNATI — The No. 31 Cincinnati men’s golf team will conclude its highly decorated fall season this weekend at the two-day Quail Valley Collegiate Invitational in Vero Beach, Fla., starting Sunday.

The action will take place at the 7,350-yard, par-72 Quail Valley Golf Club and originally ran from Saturday to Sunday. So far, three of the Bearcats’ four tournaments have lasted two days.

It’s also the team’s first trip to this course since the Fall 2017 Finals, preceding anyone else on the current roster.

Cincinnati, which won the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate earlier this week for its second victory in the fall, will send its same starting five in Sam Jean, Ty Gingerich, William McDonald, Wyatt Plattner and Rylan Wotherspoon.

Jean, ranked 39e by Golfstat, has three top-10 finishes across four tournaments, including the Bearcat Invitational title and the only outlier being 12e at the Old Town Collegiate Church. His average of 68.91 strokes is just ahead Ty Gingerich’s high-end performance (69.18). The duo each have seven rounds under 70 of 11 this season, with Gingerich also picking up three top-10 finishes and placing 59th.e at Golfstat.

Wyatt Plattner’s elite play in the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate Championship chase saw him achieve his lowest score (7-under 209) and best finish (seventh). He improved his score and position in each of his three full events except for the rain-shortened Badger Invitational. Wotherspoon also shot 3 over combined in the past two tournaments, including a solid 74-72-70 at Tennessee to finish tied strong.

The participating teams, including five in the top 50, are Indiana, Liberty, Maryland, Memphis, Michigan State, Missouri, North Florida, Northern Illinois, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Penn State, Rutgers, South Florida, Toledo and Wisconsin.
