Men's Golf Heads To Scottsdale For Wyoming Cowboy Classic
April 8, 2012
With the Big 12 Championships less than a month away, the 44th-ranked Texas Tech Men's golf team will fine tune their game on Monday and Tuesday at the 2012 Wyoming Cowboy Classic in Scottsdale, Ariz.
The Red Raiders will be one of 24 teams competing in this year's Cowboy Classic that is being held at the Talking Stick Golf Club (North Course) in Scottsdale. The tournament field includes host Wyoming along with Colorado State, Arizona State, Texas Tech, Boise State, Nevada, Wichita State, Colorado, UC Davis, Kansas State, Air Force, Northern Colorado, New Mexico State, Santa Clara, Old Dominion, Cal State Northridge, Gonzaga, San Diego, UC Santa Barbara, Weber State, Utah State, Kansas and Arizona.
Texas Tech is returning to the links for the first time since mid-March when the Red Raiders finished sixth at the Morris Williams Invitational in Austin. The Cowboy Classic is one of just two tournaments remaining on the schedule before the Big 12 Championships begin at Whispering Pines on April 27.
The Red Raiders are led by freshman Clement Sordet (73.1 stroke average), Finley Ewing IV (73.3 stroke average) and Logan McCracken (74.2 stroke average). All three players have three top 10 finishes this season. Sordet has registered two tournament wins and three top five finishes.
