Men’s golf begins Mauna Lani Invitational in Hawaii at No. 4

The men’s golf team will kick off its spring campaign today in Kamuela, Hawaii at the Mauna Lani Invitational.

The team will enter the tournament with a No. 4 national ranking but will face six other top-10 programs, including No. 1 Oklahoma State and No. 2 Stanford.

The tournament lineup consists of senior Travis Woolf, junior Tom Hoge, sophomore Johan de Beer, freshman Pontas Gad and freshman Daniel Jennevret.

In the fall, Woolf finshed in the No. 7 spot at The Prestige at PGA West by recording a score of five-under-par at 214. He also placed No. 13 at the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational in October.

Another notable performance during the fall came from de Beer in The Prestige at PGA West where he topped the charts with a No. 3 finish, recording a 212 score of four-under-par.

Jennevret also made quite a showing in the fall by becoming the fastest golfer in TCU history to clutch a tournament win.

He grabbed the top spot at The Prestige at PGA West with a 12-under-par score of 204.

Gad, the other freshman who will make an appearance this week in Hawaii, made an impression last semester gaining a No. 4 spot at the PING/Golfweek Preview with a 218 score of two-over-par.

Traveling to Kamuela to compete as individuals are junior Scott Roudebush and sophomore Eli Cole.

The first round of the tournament kicks off today and will be followed by two additional days of 18-hole play Thursday and Friday.
