OXFORD, Miss. – After back-to-back top-three finishes to open the season, the Ole Miss men’s golf team will travel to Baton Rouge, La. this weekend for the David Toms Intercollegiate hosted by LSU.
The two-day event begins on Saturday at the par-72 University Club in Baton Rouge. In addition to the Rebels and the host Tigers the tournament field includes Lamar, Louisiana Tech, Mississippi State, South Alabama, Tulsa, Louisiana-Lafayette and UAB.
Ole Miss, who is No. 47 in the latest GolfWeek team rankings, will be led at the top of the lineup by sophomore Blake Morris, who has two top-five finishes this season, and junior Tom Brown, who turned in a sixth-place finish at the recent Mason Rudolph Championship. Joe Lewis, Connor Davis and Forrest Gamble will round out the Rebel five-some, while senior Chad Bounds will also compete as an individual.
“We will be playing the LSU University Club, one of the sites for the 2013 NCAA Regionals,” said Ole Miss head coach Ernest Ross. “This is somewhat of a preview for that tournament with a strong field, led by host LSU. I see improvement in our team and I think we are prepared for the test. I know we are looking forward to competing again.”
