Sept. 6, 2007

ORLANDO, Fla. (www.ucfathletics.com) - Golfweek magazine released its preseason men's golf poll this week and UCF is ranked 30th in the nation according to the publication. Head coach Nick Clinard's Knights were the lone Conference USA team in the poll.

UCF returns 10 players from last season's squad that participated in the NCAA East Regional and completed the campaign ranked 39th. Among the returnees are senior Giwon Suh (Orlando, Fla./Olympia), junior Kyle Davis (Kennett Square, Pa./Unionville) and sophomore Nuno Henriques (Funchal, Portugal).

Last season, Henriques was named to the All-C-USA Freshman Team.

The Knights also feature several talented newcomers, including freshman Jhared Hack (Sanford, Fla./Circle Christian). In August, Hack claimed the prestigious Western Amateur in Michigan.

Stanford was ranked first in the poll, followed by UCLA.

UCF opens the fall campaign on Sept. 24 at the Shoal Creek Intercollegiate in Birmingham, Ala. Starting Oct. 21, the Knights host the Isleworth-UCF Collegiate Invitational in nearby Windermere.
