The USF men’s golf team will be hosting the Ron Smith Invitational Friday through Sunday at the USF Golf Course. The Bulls will meet 17 other teams from all over the country. Some of the Conference USA teams that USF will meet are Memphis, DePaul, Marquette and Southern Mississippi.
The tourney will start at 7:45 a.m. Friday morning.
USF men’s golf coach Jim Fee said about the team’s chances in this tournament, “I’m relying on the whole team to step it up … all the players have certainly played well in our golf course, and we expect some good things [today] from them.”
USF will play throughout the weekend depending on Friday’s results. Coming back from the Mexican Amateurs with a third place title, senior Ricky Carrillo is confident.
“I’m ready to play this tournament. It’s my last, it’s my senior year … I’m pretty confident I’m gonna do good,” Carrillo said.But Fee said the chance of rain could cut play short.
“Weather is a big question mark … there’s certainly a possibility of rain, but for college golfers, as long as there is no lighting, [they] keep playing,” Fee stated.
With schools such as Notre Dame and Georgia Southern, the Bulls expect strong competition.
