No. 4 Baylor Men’s Golf Heads to Aggie Invitational

No. 4-ranked Baylor men’s golf is headed to Bryan, Texas, to play in the 11th Aggie Invitational, which runs Saturday and Sunday at Traditions Golf Club.

The Bears are No. 4 in the latest GolfStat rankings, the highest in program history. BU is among 10 top-50 ranked squads in the 13-team field, including seven of the nation’s top 20 teams. Baylor competes against No. 2 Oklahoma State, No. 7 Kent State, No. 8 LSU, No. 13 Texas Tech, No. 17 Texas A&M, No. 18 Texas, No. 25 Arkansas, No. 29 North Carolina, No. 46 Michigan, New Mexico State, North Texas and UTSA.

Baylor’s lineup features sophomore Braden Bailey, senior Hunter Shattuck, junior Matthew Perrine, freshman Cooper Dossey and sophomore Garrett May. The Bears are paired with golfers from LSU and UTSA and will begin Saturday’s first round from the 10th tee at 8 a.m. CT. May is up first, and he’ll be followed in 10-minute intervals by Dossey, Perrine, Shattuck and Bailey, respectively.

Teams will continue play for a second round on Saturday, and Sunday’s final round is scheduled for tee times beginning at 7:30 a.m. from the first and 10th tees.

Baylor is playing in the Aggie Invitational for an eighth time. The Bears played the first six events, elected not to play in 2013, 2014 and 2015 and returned in 2016. BU placed fifth in a 15-team field at the 2016 event, and its best finish at the tournament was fourth place in an 11-team field in 2011.

Bailey leads the team with a 69.81 stroke average across 21 rounds, followed by Dossey at 70.62. May ranks third at 70.95, Shattuck is fourth at 71.14 and Perrine is fifth at 71.24. Perrine leads the team with 15 rounds at par or better, and the five players in Baylor’s lineup have combined to shoot 66 of 105 rounds at par or better.

All five BU players have earned top-five individual finishes this season. Bailey, Dossey and Perrine have each won individual titles, while May has two top-three finishes and Shattuck has a pair of top-five finishes. Perrine has finished seventh or better in five consecutive tournaments, shooting par or better in 12 straight rounds over his last four events. Bailey has recorded top-three finishes in three of his last four events, and Dossey has been top-10 in four of his last five tournaments.
