OXFORD, Miss. - After a two-week break, the Ole Miss men's golf team returns to action Nov. 4 at the Princeville Warrior Collegiate Classic in Kauai, Hawaii hosted by the University of Hawaii.

The three-day tournament will be held at the par-72, 7,223-yard course at the Princeville Makai Golf Club. The 16-team field includes the host Rainbow Warriors, Arizona State, Baylor, Boise State, Cal Poly, Cal State Fullerton, East Tennessee State, Idaho, Louisville, Middle Tennessee State, Mississippi, Mississippi State, Pepperdine, San Diego, San Francisco and UC Santa Barbara.

The Rebel lineup will consist of junior Blake Morris, sophomore Forrest Gamble, freshman Noah West, junior Joe Lewis and freshman Ben Wolcott.

“We are obviously excited to travel to a great part of the world to play a college tournament," head coach Ernest Ross said. "The field is good and we know we will have warm weather. We are looking forward to another challenge. Each tournament is like a test, and you want to keep improving. We have practiced hard and worked some on the mental side to develop more self confidence. Without confidence in one’s abilities, even the best of skills will be diminished. Our players want to play well and have shown it in their practice.”

Morris has posted strong finishes in the first four tournaments this season, including capturing his first individual title as a Rebel at the Shoal Creek Invitational on Oct. 1. This marks the final fall tournament for the Rebels, who tee off in spring with the Mobile Bay Intercollegiate Feb. 17.
