Men’s Golf Set to Host Zach Johnson Invitational on Oct. 3-4

first_img DES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University men’s golf team is set to host the second annual Zach Johnson Invitational on Monday (Oct. 3) and Tuesday (Oct. 6) at The Harvester Golf Club in Rhodes, Iowa.”We had a very successful event last year and are looking forward to another successful tournament this year. We have a couple new teams from last year and we are at a new course, which is exciting,” said Drake head coach Matt Lewis.Joining the Bulldogs are Bradley, Creighton, Eastern Illinois, Green Bay, Indian Hills CC, North Dakota, North Dakota State and Northern Iowa.The event will be a three-round tournament with two rounds on Monday (36 holes) and the final round Tuesday (18 holes). Both days will get underway at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start on the par 72 course.”The Harvester is a long course, up to 7,400 yards, and it’s a firm and fast. It is a demanding golf course from tee to green and every hole has its own challenges. The greens are really fast and undulated. Players will need to position themselves in the right spot on the greens, below the hole and have good pace with the putter. If you do those things you are going to score well if you don’t it will be a very challenging day,” said Lewis. Live Scoring  Print Friendly Versioncenter_img Story Linkslast_img read more
