OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss men's golf team will travel to Columbia, Mo., Monday for its second tournament of the season to compete in the NCAA Regional Preview.
The two-day tournament will be held at the par 72, 7,221-yard The Club at Old Hawthorne course and features a field that includes host Missouri, Tulsa, Kansas State, Austin Peay, Iowa State, Ole Miss, Nebraska, San Francisco, Louisiana, South Alabama and Memphis.
The Rebel lineup will consist of Blake Morris, Noah West, Joe Lewis, Forrest Gamble and Connor Davis, while freshman Ben Wolcott will compete as an individual.
"Blake Morris had a great tournament last week, but we didn't give him much help as a team," head coach Ernest Ross said. "We are shooting very good scores in practice, and we need to carry these over to tournament golf. I was very pleased with the progress shown by Noah West, who led qualifying this week and had his career best round as a Rebel with 65. We are ready for the challenge."
Morris, a native of Waterbury, Conn., posted a career-best second-place finish at the Sam Hall Intercollegiate this past week with a three-round total of 201. West, who was redshirted for the 2012-13 season, will be participating in his first tournament as a Rebel.
