GW Golf Goes West to Open Spring at Arizona Intercollegiate
Colonials Begin Spring Slate Against Competitive Field at New Sewailo Golf Club
Jan. 24, 2014
WASHINGTON - GW golf travels west to Tucson, Ariz., to open its 2014 spring season at the 54-hole Arizona Intercollegiate at the new Sewailo Golf Club on Jan. 27 and 28.
Despite recent stretches of sub-zero temperatures in the metro D.C. area, GW has managed to hit the range and course this semester in preparation for the spring opener. "We played 18 holes on our home course at The Country Club at Woodmore on Monday and actually got in more golf than I thought we would," said first-year Head Coach Chuck Scheinost, who built Northern Colorado into a perennial America Sky Golf Conference contender.
The Colonials plan to get additional practice in at The Golf Club at Dove Mountain, site of next month's WGC Accenture Match Play Championship, in nearby Marana, Ariz., before beginning play with 36 holes on Monday on the par-71, 7,282-yard Sewailo Golf Club, which opened last year.
The competitive Arizona Intercollegiate field is headlined by five teams either ranked or receiving votes in the most recent NCAA Top 25 - No. 3 California, No. 16 New Mexico, No. 24 USC, BYU and Cal State Fullerton. The Colonials and host Wildcats will also be joined by James Madison, Loyola Marymount, New Mexico State, Oregon State, Pacific, UC Riverside and UTEP in the 14-team field.
"Everyone brought back a really good attitude and everyone knows our expectations," added Coach Scheinost. "We know there is a lot of work to do, and we look forward to several spring events against some of the top fields in the country to help us improve and prepare for the Atlantic 10 Championship."
