"This is the first year this tournament's existed, and it's a brand new golf course," head coach Chris Adams said. "I have high expectations for the course, and this will definitely be the best field we'll play this year. I think we're coming off a good tournament, and we have to continue to improve."
The event, hosted by the University of Tulsa, features 16 schools, including 11 of which who are ranked in the Golfstat.com Top 100. Big 12 opponents No. 20 Oklahoma, No. 24 Oklahoma State and No. 33 Texas headline the event. Sun Belt foe and 46th-ranked UALR is also participating.
