JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The men's golf team of Jacksonville University kicks off its spring schedule with the Sea Best Invitational, hosted by the Dolphins on Monday and Tuesday at TPC Sawgrass.
"It's a great course, and we're expecting good weather," said Head Coach Mike Blackburn. "It's rained a bit the past few days, but the course should be dried out by Monday."
The 6,977-yard, Par-71 course will field 15 teams: Jacksonville, Arkansas, Campbell, Charleston Southern, Florida, Jacksonville State, Liberty, Lipscomb, McNeese State, North Carolina, North Florida, Stephen F. Austin, Tennessee, Texas A&M, and USC-Upstate.
"I really like our team," Blackburn said. "It's the same team that played in the last two tournaments, where we performed pretty well. Raul has just returned from two amateur international events, which gave him a lot of good experience, and the whole team has practiced well. We've been blessed to be able to practice, as many teams have had to travel long distances to find a course that wasn't covered in snow. It's hard to predict what will happen next week, but I like our chances."
Rounds 1 & 2 will both occur on Monday, and the final 18 holes will take place on Tuesday.
