Men’s golf begins Jerry Pate Intercollegiate

The men’s golf team opens up the Jerry Pate Intercollegiate on Monday morning at 7:30 at the Old Overton Country Club in Vestavia Hills, Ala.

The team will have 36 holes of play and finish playing the final 18 holes Tuesday at 7:30 a.m.

Arizona will face Texas A&M, Mississippi State, Middle Tennessee State, Louisville UNLV and Arkansas, among other teams.

“This is probably the deepest field we’ll face this fall,” head coach Jim Anderson said in a press release. “There are certainly some elite amateur players who are going to tee it up at the Pate, so we definitely have our work cut out for us in terms of the competition we’ll face.”

Senior Erik Oja leads the team with a 72.50 scoring average and will be playing in the No. 1 position throughout the two-day tournament.

Junior Alex McMahon will play No. 2 and senior Christian Colegrove will be in the No. 3 spot, followed by Benson Liu at No.4 and junior Tucker Wadkins at No. 5.
