Men’s golf travels to Las Vegas

James Grandberry

No. 17 Texas heads to Las Vegas this weekend to compete in the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters tournament.

Starting at 10 a.m. Friday, the Longhorns will be in Las Vegas, facing off against 11 of the top 20 ranked teams, including the top three teams: Alabama, Georgia Tech and Oklahoma State.

Two other Texas teams, No. 6 Texas A&M and No. 50 Texas Tech, will also be contending in Las Vegas. Texas is coming off of a season-best finish at the Bayou City Intercollegiate Championship on Feb. 21-23, where four Longhorns broke into the top 10 to grasp a second place finish for the team. 

Texas looks to improve on last year’s 12th place outing, led by junior Kramer Hickok, who fired a 69 in the final round.
