Baylor Men’s Golf Heads to Arizona for Maui Jim Intercollegiate

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor men’s golf is headed to Scottsdale, Ariz., for the inaugural Maui Jim Intercollegiate. The tournament, which runs Friday through Sunday, is hosted by Georgia State at Mirabel Golf Club.

The 16-team field includes Augusta, Baylor, California, Chattanooga, Georgia State, Georgia Tech, Grand Canyon, Hawaii, Houston, Kansas, Kent State, LSU, Notre Dame, South Carolina, South Florida and UAB.

Baylor is one of five ranked teams in the field. The Bears are No. 24 in the preseason Golfweek Division I Coaches Poll, joining No. 7 LSU, No. 11 California, No. 17 South Carolina and No. 22 South Florida.

Baylor’s lineup features the same five players from its only other tournament this season when the Bears finished 10th at the Fighting Illini Invitational, but the order has been adjusted. Sophomore Braden Bailey is back in the No. 1 spot, followed by senior Hunter Shattuck, who jumped from No. 4 last week to No. 2 this week.

Sophomore Garrett May is playing No. 3, followed by freshman Cooper Dossey, who moved up one spot to No. 4, and junior Matthew Perrine. Junior Jackson Heazel is making his season debut playing as an individual.

Shattuck led the team with a tie for 29th place at 9-over in the Fighting Illini Invitational. Bailey was right behind him in a tie for 33rd place at 10-over, and Dossey finished tied for 36th at 11-over in his first collegiate event. Heazel is playing in his third tournament in as many years for the Bears. He previously played as an individual in both the 2015 Border Olympics (tied for 34th place) and the 2016 Oak Hills Invitational (tied for 49th place).

Friday’s opening round begins at 8:50 a.m. CT. Players in the Baylor lineup will begin from the first tee at 10 a.m., with Perrine up first, and he’ll be followed in 12-minute intervals by Dossey, May, Shattuck and Bailey, respectively. BU players are paired with golfers from California and Georgia Tech. Heazel begins from the 10th tee at 9:36 a.m. in a pairing with Notre Dame’s Blake Barens and Hawaii’s Chayutpol Kittirattanapaiboon.

Saturday’s second round also begins at 8:50 a.m., and the Bears will again start at 10 a.m. with Georgia Tech and California, though they’ll begin the second round from the 10th tee. Sunday’s final round pairings will be set based on team standings.
