HEAD COACH Garrett Clegg SAYS
"We've worked really hard. A lot of times in golf when you work hard, it doesn't mean you are going to play that much better the next week. Our guys did a great job all preseason getting ready for our first tournament and the fall season, and it was great to have all the hard work manifest itself in a great first tournament. It is a huge confidence booster for us going forward."
