Top-ranked Texas heads to Orlando

Peter Sblendorio

Texas travels to Orlando this weekend looking to win its third consecutive event.

The Longhorns, who rose to No. 1 in the Golfstat Head-to-Head standings last week, will compete in the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational on Sunday, Oct. 23 through Tuesday, Oct. 25. Texas will be one of 15 teams taking part in the three-day event.

Texas’ biggest competition in the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational will likely come from Stanford, who is ranked third in the Golfstat standings. Stanford finished in first place at the Olympia Fields Invitational last month, with the Longhorns placing fifth.

Senior Dylan Frittelli has been perhaps the biggest reason for the Longhorns’ success this year, as the Big 12 Conference Golfer of the Month for September has finished as one of the Texas’ top two scorers in each event.

The Longhorns, who have won consecutive tournaments for the first time since 2006, have a chance to make it three victories in four tries in 2011 this week with another strong outing.
