The CSU men’s golf team will begin play in its second tournament of the fall season today and Saturday in the 48th annual William H. Tucker Intercollegiate Tournament in Albuquerque, N. M. It is a 54-hole, non-conference competition starting this morning at 7:30 a.m. Thirty-six holes will be played today and the final 18 will take place on Saturday.
There will be 17 teams battling for the championship, including in-state rival Colorado and conference rivals such as Brigham Young and Wyoming.
The Rams have been in New Mexico since Tuesday to get some practice rounds in to get familiar with the course. They are coming of a sixth-place finish out of 15 teams last weekend at the Badger Invitational in Madison, Wis.
They were led by the strong play of junior Nolan Martin who tied for 10th place.
The Tucker tournament is the second oldest golf tournament in the nation. Many famous golfers have played in the tournament, including Tiger Woods, who won the tournament in 1994 in his first college event as a freshman at Stanford.
