Men's Golf Visits the Hoosier State for the Wolf Run Intercollegiate

Oct. 5, 2006

ORLANDO - A long trip north to Indiana is on the horizon for the UCF men's golf team as it joins a field of 10 teams for the Wolf Run Intercollegiate Saturday and Sunday. The event is set to take place at the Wolf Run Golf Club in Zionsville, Ind., and will be hosted by Indiana University.

UCF, which received four votes in the first edition of the Golf Coaches Association of America/Bridgestone Coaches Poll, will play along aside No. 17 Kentucky and four other programs who received votes (Xavier, Louisville, Michigan and Arkansas). Host Indiana, Georgia Southern, Missouri and Memphis round out the field.

Wolf Run is currently ranked the 20th-best course in the country according to Golfweek's America's 100 Best Modern Courses. UCF will tee off at 8:38 a.m. with Xavier on No. 10 for the first round Saturday with the second round to begin 15 minutes after all groups complete the morning session. Sunday's final round gets underway at 9 a.m. on both the No. 1 and No. 10 tees.

Through the first two tournaments of 2006-07, sophomore Preston Brown (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla./Nease) leads the Golden Knights with a 72.50 stroke average and two top-10s. He and sophomore Greg Forest (Palm City, Fla./Martin County) each have three rounds of par or better this season. UCF placed third out of four NCAA programs at the Topy Cup in Japan Sept. 5-7, then earned fourth out of a tough field of 15 teams at the Shoal Creek Intercollegiate Sept. 25-26.
