Events to watch: FSU, LSU, SH Masters
Thursday, March 11, 2010
I’m on the road this week, off to a tournament with a field the small guys dream about – the Seminole Intercollegiate. It will be a showdown of schools from top to bottom of the rankings.
1.) Seminole Intercollegiate. If you are like me – a fan of the .500 rule – then you would love this event. This is one of those great tournaments in the country when we can actually see some of the “little guys” take on the “big boys” of college golf. Here is a list of teams and their ranking:
- Florida State (8)
- South Carolina (11)
- Baylor (38)
- Arkansas (46)
- Vanderbilt (58)
- UNC (59)
- North Texas (80)
- Georgia State (116)
- Mississippi St. (121)
- Troy (135)
- Western Carolina (154)
- Mercer (156)
- Cincinnati (178)
- George Mason (198)
Anyone dare to make some bold predictions?
2.) Tiger/Wave Golf Classic. LSU and Tulane will be hosting 21 schools in this 23-team women’s event. This is another one of those great tournaments that feature teams gearing up for the postseason and others trying to earn some late victories. The tournament is mostly made up of SEC teams, along with just about everyone from North Carolina - UNC, N.C. State, UNC-Wilmington and Wake Forest. Tulane recently won the Kinderlou Forest Challenge, but if it could pull off a win in a field like this then we might just have another “top” team to start talking about.
3.) Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters. Let talk about one team in this field – Georgia. The ’Dawgs are traveling across the country – perhaps under some heat – after playing in the Wendy’s Shootout. It’s time to see how Haack’s boys do in the city of Lady Luck. There are no Longwoods or High Point Universities here, instead there are top teams like Arizona State, Florida, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma State, USC, Texas A&M, Texas . . . you get the point.
However, UNLV always seem to play well in the desert. Plenty of storylines, and I can’t wait to see how it unfolds.
