NORTHRIDGE, Calif. - The Cal State Northridge men's golf team plays the first seven spring tournaments prior to the Big West Championship beginning Monday with the first two rounds of the Anteater Invitational.
The tournament, at Mesa Verde Country Club in Costa Mesa, will have 36 holes on Monday and 18 on Tuesday. Seven schools will make up the field with UCLA sending four individuals who's score will not count towards the team competition.
CSUN played a light schedule of three fall tournaments, posting a best team finish of sixth at the Cabo del Sol Intercollegiate in October. The team averaged 298 strokes per round. Senior Kyler Sauer led the team in scoring in the fall with a 73.9 stroke average. Sauer also had the team's best finish in the fall with an eighth place showing at the Bill Cullum Invitational.
"We have a lot of talent this year," said head coach Jim Bracken. "I think we underachieved during the fall and I'm expecting better results this spring."
The late January start in early for the men's team who will play seven tournaments between now and April 15. The Big West Championship is scheduled for late April.
"This is our first tournament back, I'd like to see us finish in the upper half if not first," said Bracken. "The main thing for this team to work on its consistency which will most certainly improve as we play more tournaments this spring."
