OXFORD, Miss. - The Ole Miss men's golf team heads to Greensboro, N.C. this weekend for the Bridgestone Golf Collegiate hosted by UNC-Greensboro. The two-day tournament at the Grandover Resort & Conference Center starts on Saturday.
This is the final tournament of the fall for the Rebels, who have claimed a pair of victories including the Cabo Collegiate two weeks ago in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Ole Miss will return to action after the winter break at the John Hayt Invitational in February.
"We are gaining confidence as individual players and as a team,” said Ole Miss head coach Ernest Ross. “Having won two team titles this fall, our next goal is to win a title for one of our individual players. We don't know much about the course we will be playing, but we have prepared as best we know how. Every course is different and may call for a slightly different skill set. We want to develop well-rounded players that can succeed in every situation. I know our players are welcoming the upcoming challenge."
The Ole Miss lineup for the tournament will be sophomore Blake Morris, freshman Forrest Gamble, sophomore Joe Lewis, junior Tom Brown and freshman Connor Davis. The 13-team field includes Boston College, Chattanooga, Eastern Michigan, Georgia State, Iowa State, Maryland, Mississippi State, North Carolina State, Purdue, VCU, Virginia Tech and host UNC Greensboro.
