BRIEFS: UCD men set golf schedule

By
July 11, 2010 |

Head coach Cy Williams announced another challenging schedule for the UC Davis menÕs golf team in 2010-11, including the highly regarded Prestige at PGA West which it co-hosts with Stanford.

Among the tournaments on this yearÕs slate are a pair which the Aggies won during its last visits. One of them is the Wyoming Cowboy Classic which will be held next Apr. 4-5 at Scottsdale, Ariz., an event UCD captured for three straight years from 2007-2009 before not playing in the event last season.

Tournaments at the University of Washington, Northwestern, Hawaii-Hilo and in Southern California will pit the Aggies against some of the best teams in collegiate golf and provide another season of strong challenges.

ÒOur goal is always to put together a schedule where we can play against the greatest players and the greatest teams in the elite tournaments across the country,Ó Williams said. ÒIf we want to be the very best then we need to compete at the highest level. WeÕre very happy that weÕll get a chance to do these things this upcoming season.Ó

One of the main highlights for UCDÕs season, however, will be the Prestige at PGA West which in its decade-long history has evolved into one of the most sought-after collegiate tournaments in the country. The event, which will be played at the PGA West Stadium Course in La Quinta, brings

together some of the top academic and golf-playing schools in the United States.

This yearÕs 15-team event, scheduled for Oct. 10-12, features eight teams ranked at the end of last season among the top 50 by Golfweek including No. 2 Washington, No. 4 Stanford, No. 7 Washington and No. 15 Arizona State. Other highly ranked teams include No. 22 TCU, No. 26 Cal, No. 29 University of San Diego and No. 33 Pepperdine.

The Stockton Sports Commission Pacific Invitational will be another highlight of the AggiesÕ schedule as UCD won the tournament last year behind incoming junior Tyler Raber, a Davis High graduate who earned medalist honors. This yearÕs event will be Nov. 1-3 at Brookside Country Club.

UCD returns nearly its entire lineup as it looks to regain the Big West championship it captured in 2009. The Aggies will also try to return to the NCAA West Regional as a team for the second time in three seasons.
