10th Ranked Aggie Men's Golf Team Headed To Glitter Gulch

By  | 

LAS VEGAS, NV -- The No. 10-ranked Texas A&M men's golf team will compete at the Southern Highlands Collegiate Championship Friday through Sunday at Southern Highlands Golf Course.

The 15-team field will play 18 holes each day for a total of 54 holes on the 7,381-yard, par-72 course.

In addition to A&M, the field includes No. 3 Florida, No. 4 Oklahoma State,
No. 6 Georgia, No. 7 Clemson, No. 9 UNLV, No. 13 UCLA, No. 17 Georgia Tech, No. 18 Arizona State, No. 19 Wake Forest, No. 20 Texas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Arizona and Washington.

Representing A&M will be Bronson Burgoon, Martin Piller, Andrea Pavan, Trey Todd and Chris Massoletti. Pavan, the Italian junior champion, is making his debut after joining the team at mid-term.

"This is considered among the strongest tournaments in college golf and we are so fortunate to be a part of it," A&M Coach J.T. Higgins said. "It is an elite field of teams and Southern Highlands is a demanding test of golf. We will really have to be on top of our game mentally and physically and need to be prepared to fight for every shot. These teams don't ever give anything back to the field, so the only way to win is to play great golf."

The Aggies opened the spring season with a third-place finish at the John Burns Intercollegiate last month in Hawaii. Burgoon led the Aggies, tying for 19th place.
