OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss men’s golf team will travel to Statesboro, Ga., Friday for its third tournament of the spring season to compete in the 35th Annual Chris Schenkel Invitational hosted by Georgia Southern University.
The three-day tournament will be held at the Par-72, 6,962-yard course at the Forrest Heights Country Club. The 15-team field includes the host Eagles, No. 13 UAB, No. 8 Central Florida, College of Charleston, Duke, Florida, Georgia State, No. 29 Kentucky, Maryland, Ole Miss, NC State, North Florida, North Texas, No. 15 Texas and No. 11 Virginia.
The Rebel lineup will consist of freshman Ben Wolcott, junior Blake Morris, sophomore Forrest Gamble, junior Joe Lewis and senior Tom Brown, who will be competing in his first team tournament of the 2013-14 season.
“We are headed to our third tournament of the spring,” head coach Ernest Ross said. “We have been working hard on conquering some weak spots in each player’s game. I am ready to test our team against some of the best in the SEC and ACC. We need to be in mid-season form right now. Ben Wolcott was low for us last week in Mexico and deserves to be in the No. 1 spot this week.”
Wolcott led the Rebels at the Querencia Cabo Intercollegiate with a three-round total of 220. The Dickson, Tenn., native finished in a tie for 18th, marking his second top-2o finish of the season.
