BYU

Cougar golfers head to Temequla, Calif., next week to compete in the final tournament of the fall season. The men's team will play as the defending champions at the UCLA Bruins Pioneer Electric Classic on the 7,500-yard Red Hawk course.

Says coach Bruce Brockbank, "This is an exceptional course to play on and my understanding is that it is really challenging.

"The tournament fields fifteen teams with three or four of our competitors in the top 20. It's a good field with a lot of west coast schools competing, though it may not be the stiffest competition we've faced this fall. I think, because of that, we'll have the chance to let down our guard a little and play a more relaxed game."

Feeling the heat in some elite tournaments this fall have been veterans Brad Sutterfield and Eric Rustand.

"We do have a young team and I feel that Sutterfield and Rustand have put a great deal of pressure on themselves to perform well," says Brockbank. "We've had some good individual performances. I hope to see improvement in what we can do as a team."

Adds Brockbank, "It will be disappointing for us if we don't finish in the top five."
