BATON ROUGE, La. – Hoping to carry over momentum from a sixth-place finish at last month’s Ram Masters Invitational, Rice University men’s golf travels to face a strong field at LSU’s David Toms Intercollegiate on Saturday and Sunday at Baton Rouge’s University Club.
Play opens on the par-72, 7,663-yard course on Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start. The second round follows the same format in the afternoon. Play concludes Sunday with an 8:30 a.m. start for the final round.
Looking ahead to the trip, head coach Justin Emil said, “It’s been a good two weeks of preparation for the David Toms Intercollegiate, hosted by LSU. We had a decent amount of time to address some things that needed work so I am confident that the guys are prepared to play well this weekend in Baton Rouge. This is a tough field of teams and the golf course is typically a NCAA Regional site that is very difficult, so this will be a good test for the Owls.”
Leading the Owls into the weekend, senior Landon Michelson holds a 71.17 average through two tournaments this fall, including a low round of 70. He tied for 15th at the Ram Masters Invite and led Rice at the season opener with an even-par 213 at the Sam H. Hall Intercollegiate in Hattiesburg, Miss.
In just his second collegiate tournament, freshman Kevin Reilly fired a 67 in the Ram Masters opening round and claimed 10th place at the event. He brings a 71.33 stroke average into Louisiana.
Junior Joe Beck III enters his third tournament of the fall with an ability to close out competitions well and a 73.83 average. His scores have improved through each round in both tournaments so far, with a 77-73-72 and 76-73-72.
Trey Johnson will see his second action of the fall after posting a 58th-place finish as an individual at the Sam H. Hall Intercollegiate in early September. With a 74.00 stroke average through three rounds, the sophomore has shed nearly six strokes per round off of last season’s season average.
Freshman Alex Levy enters his third event of the season with a 74.83 stroke average. The newcomer has shown strong play with a pair of 72-stroke rounds but seeks consistency as he gains experience.
The tournament field features teams from seven states and includes a pair of Conference USA rivals, in Middle Tennessee and Louisiana Tech. Rounding out the field of 12 is: Coastal Carolina, Houston, Kennesaw State, Lamar, Louisiana-Lafayette, host LSU, South Alabama and Southeastern Louisiana.
Rice faced Louisiana-Lafayette, South Alabama and Southeastern Louisiana in the Sam H. Hall Intercollegiate to open the fall slate.
