KSU men’s golf hosting lone home event

By The Mercury

The Kansas State men’s golf team is looking to defend its home turf as the Wildcats are set to host the Jim Colbert Intercollegiate — beginning today and going through Tuesday — at the par-72, 7,525-yard Colbert Hills Golf Course.

Last year, K-State used its home-course advantage to capture the team title, as the Wildcats finished atop the leaderboard at 37-over 901, besting second-place finisher Idaho by 11 strokes.

K-State head coach Tim Norris is hopeful that his golfers can build on the momentum that they picked up in the final round of last week’s St. Mary’s Invitational.

“We are coming off a great round to finish in California and should be able to keep the confidence going here at Colbert Hills,” Norris said. “The course is in great shape, and it is always a source of pride to show off our course to other teams, with schools from Texas and Arizona making the trip this year.”

In addition to the Wildcats, this year’s event field will include Central Oklahoma, Creighton, Drake, Grand Canyon, Nebraska Omaha, Sam Houston State, Southern Illinois and South Dakota.
