The Rice University golf team closes out the fall season during the upcoming week at the 2011 Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate. The 54-hole tournament is slated for Monday and Tuesday at the New Mexico State University Golf Course (Par 72/7,014 Yards) in Las Cruces, N.M.
In addition to host NMSU and the Owls, competing in the tournament will be Idaho, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, UNLV, Northern Colorado, San Jose State, Texas State, UTEP, Weber State, Western New Mexico and Wichita State.
Rice closes out its fall season with tournaments on successive weeks. Sophomore Jeff Wibawa is coming off his first collegiate championship at this past week's Lone Star Invitational in San Antonio. The Owls posted an 11th-place finish at the tournament.
"Jeff helped us create a little momentum going into the Herb Wimberly with his win at the Lone Star Invitational," Rice coach Justin Emil said. "We had a real opportunity for a strong finish in San Antonio and I anticipate the team putting themselves in the same situation this week.
Wibawa leads the team with a 71.33 strokes per round average and leads a contingent of six golfers who travel to New Mexico. Also traveling this weekend will be Erik Mayer, Chris Contreras, Brock Wilson, James Hiester and James Ragan.
"As golfers we hope to learn something from every competitive round. Jeff is a perfect example of a golfer who learned quickly from a missed opportunity at Louisiana Tech," Emil said. "He put himself in a similar position at the Lone Star and capitalized."
The Herb Wimberly begins with 36 holes of continuous play on Monday with the final 18 holes slated for Tuesday. Competition each day begins at 8 a.m.
