HUMBLE, Texas – Two weeks after a strong third-place finish in the spring opener, Rice University men’s golf returns to action in the 54-hole Bayou City Collegiate Championships at Redstone Golf Club on Friday. The Owls are co-hosting the three-day event with the University of Houston.
Head coach Justin Emil is looking forward to the event, noting "The Bayou City Collegiate Championship boasts an elite field on a PGA Tour venue. This event could end up being one of the best college golf events in the country. It's a great opportunity for our team and an honor to co-host this event with the University of Houston."
The 15-team field features six top-50 ranked teams, including No. 2 Texas, No. 37 Houston, No. 40 Baylor, No. 42 Chattanooga, No. 43 South Carolina and No. 48 Indiana. The squads will play 18 holes each day at the par-72, 6,982-yard tournament course.
Rice is paired with Houston Baptist and New Mexico State for the first round, with the Owls’ five groups teeing off on the first hole beginning at 11:30 a.m. on Friday.
Leading Rice into the event is Jeff Wibawa, who tied for fourth place at the Rice Intercollegiate earlier this month and owns a team-best 73.53 stroke average in 2012-13.
Freshman James Lee follows after tying for 18th place in his last outing. After carding a 219 (+3) at the Rice Intercollegiate, he now averages 75.67 strokes through 15 rounds in his rookie campaign.
Brock Wilson tied Lee in the spring opener with his best three-round score of his senior season and stands even with his teammate at 75.67 strokes per round as well.
Joe Beck III finished the fall with a ninth place finish at the ASU Fall Beach Classic and ranks second on the team in stroke average for the season with a 74.44.
Rounding out the Rice starting five is Landon Michelson, who tied for 30th at the Rice Intercollegiate as an individual and averages 76.44 strokes over 18 rounds this season.
Friday and Saturday’s rounds tee off at 10 a.m. from the first and 10th holes while the final round on Sunday begins at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start.
