No. 10 Texas is set to begin its spring season at the Arizona Intercollegiate in Tucson at the Sewailo Golf Club.

The 54-hole tournament begins Friday with 36 holes and will conclude Saturday with 18 holes. The course is a Par 71 that stretches 6,707 yards and was designed by former PGA Tour player, Notah Begay III.

The 16-team field includes two other ranked teams No. 21 California and No. 23 Washington. Fellow Big 12 team Iowa State will also compete.

Junior Beau Hossler and sophomore Scottie Scheffler will lead a group of five Longhorns in the team competition, while junior Kalena Preus and redshirt sophomore Branson Davis will compete individually.

After having a three-month hiatus from team action, the Longhorns are eager to be back on the course.

“More than anything, I’m just excited to have some jitters on the first tee,” Hossler said. “[I’m] really excited to get into the competitive mode.”

Head coach John Fields wants the Longhorns to hit the ground running and gain some momentum out of the weekend.

“What I’d like to do is start building some consistency on this team,” Fields said. “I’m hopeful we can go down there and get ourselves in position on the last day to win.”
