No. 14 Baylor Men’s Golf Hosts Royal Oaks Intercollegiate

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor men’s golf hosts the eighth-annual Royal Oaks Intercollegiate, an 11-team tournament at Royal Oaks Country Club in Dallas. The two-day, 54-hole event, begins Monday on the par-71, 7,068-yard course.

Royal Oaks will be a six-count-five event for the third consecutive time in 2016. Team lineups will feature six players, and the best five scores in each round will count toward the team score. The tournament was originally a five-count-four event, but made the change in 2013. Last year’s tournament was cancelled due to flooding.

The 14th-ranked Bears will compete against Charlotte, Houston, Iowa, No. 20 Kent State, No. 40 Michigan, Minnesota, No. 46 New Mexico, Pepperdine, SMU and UT Arlington.

Baylor’s lineup features senior Hunter Shattuck, sophomore Garrett May, sophomore Braden Bailey, junior Matthew Perrine, freshman Cooper Dossey and junior Jackson Heazel. Additionally, three BU players will compete as individuals – junior Nick Thornton, freshman Colin Kober and redshirt freshman Austin Cotton.

Teams will play two rounds on Monday, both of which will be shotgun starts. BU players are paired with golfers from Kent State, Charlotte and Houston. Shattuck will begin from the first tee, May on No. 2, Bailey on No. 3, Perrine on No. 4, Dossey on No. 5 and Heazel on No. 6. Baylor individuals are paired with golfers from Pepperdine, Iowa and UT Arlington. Thornton will begin on No. 16, Kober on No. 17 and Cotton on No. 18. Tuesday’s final round will feature tee times from the first and 10th tees.

Baylor has never won at Royal Oaks, but the Bears’ two best finishes in the event have come in the last two times it has been played, which were also the only two previous six-count-five events. BU took third place in 2013 and second place in 2014, with the Bears’ Mikkel Bjerch-Andresen winning medalist honors in 2014.
