Tech Tees Off 2013 Season at Pebble Beach|
Texas Tech begins the 2013 season Saturday at Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Sep 6, 2013
The 2013 season tees off Saturday at the historic Pebble Beach Golf Links for the Texas Tech men's golf team as they take on Vanderbilt, UNLV and Arizona in the annual Carmel Cup.
The teams will play 18 holes of stroke play in the morning at Pebble Beach and 18 in the afternoon at Spyglass Hill before match play begins on Sunday back at Pebble.
Tech's lineup includes four players returning from last year's sophomore-laden squad that made the NCAA Championship. Now juniors, Esteban Restrepo, Clement Sordet, Matias Dominguez and Henry Todd look to get things started off the right way in the fall before the spring season begins. All four players contributed to Tech's 14th place finish at the NCAA Champioship at Capital City Club in June - the program's fourth best finish in its history.
Sordet returns as Tech's leading scorer - averaging 72.8 strokes in 43 rounds last season.
