THOUGHTS WITH HARDY
"The wind can definitely be a factor at The Reserve, and it is unusually warm for this time of year. We need to have solid focus if we want to perform up to our capabilities."
"We have been working hard on our short game and putting during this little time off. The success from the short game will help us down the final stretch of the fall season. If we can improve in the greens, it will go a long way to scoring well."
THE COURSE FORMAT
Played at The Reserve, the course will configure to play a par 72 at 7,082 yards.
18 holes will be played each day with the rounds beginning at 8 a.m. Saint Mary's will be paired with BYU, South Dakota and Denver, as the first wave tees off the first tee at 9:40 a.m.
The Gaels lineup will be Pavan Sagoo, Blake Hathcoat, Perry Cohen, Ash Hakim and Connor Blick. Freshman Max Ferrari will be the lone individual from SMC, as he tees off at 9:40 a.m. from the 10th tee.
