OXFORD, Miss. -
Coming off of its first tournament title in over five years, the Ole Miss men's golf team will look to keep the momentum rolling Monday (36 holes) and Tuesday (18 holes) at the Mason Rudolph Championships in Nashville, Tenn.
The host Commodores will welcome a total of 15 teams to the Vanderbilt Legends Club for the fourth-annual event. The Rebels will be joined by Alabama, Central Florida, College of Charleston, Florida State, Georgia State, Kansas State, LSU, Middle Tennessee, North Florida, SMU, UAB, UNC-Wilmington and Virginia for the 54-hole affair.
"We had a tremendous start to our season, but now it's time to go back to work," Ole Miss head coach Ernest Ross said. "I was very pleased with our play in Hattiesburg, but that is just one tournament. We can't think that those three rounds are going to carry us for the rest of the season.
"We need to keep the momentum rolling and have a chance to do that at this upcoming tournament. There are several good teams in this field and we will have to play well. I am looking forward to seeing how our team responds."
Ole Miss captured its first tournament title since March 21, 1999, at the Raising Cane Classic last week. Sophomore Kyle Ellis tied for medalist honors with a 68-68-70--206, while senior Jordan Dempsey carded a 67-70-71--208 to finish fourth.
