TU Men's Golf Team Back in Action at Purina Classic
Oct. 8, 2000
The Tulsa men's golf team is back in action this week, Monday-Tuesday, Oct. 9-10, at the Purina Classic at the Missouri Bluffs Golf Club in St. Charles, Mo.
The Hurricane will be one of 15 teams competing at the par-71, 7047-yard course. Play gets underway Monday with 36 holes of action, beginning with a shotgun start at 8:00 a.m. Tuesday's final round begins at 8:00 a.m. as well.
Kansas would appear to be the pre-tournament favorite as the Jayhawks are currently the highest-ranked team in the field, weighing in at 12th in the latest Sagarin College Golf Team Rankings. Tulsa is ranked 36th nationally, followed by two more top-50 teams, Colorado (#37) and Virginia Tech (#44).
The Hurricane is led by junior Kevin Henry, who has turned in two of his best career performances this year. He had his collegiate-best third-place finish at the Kiawah Intercollegiate and leads the Hurricane with a 73.2 stroke average.
A trio of newcomers including freshmen David Inglis and Logan Goettsch and sophomore transfer Billy Lowry have been solid contributors in the early going for the Hurricane. Inglis and Lowry have posted 73.7 stroke averages after two tournaments, followed by Goettsch as he has carded a 74.0 average.
