PROVO, Utah – BYU men's golf will host the PING Cougar Classic beginning Friday at Riverside Country Club.
"It's nice to be playing at home," BYU head coach Bruce Brockbank said. "We've got strong teams coming in and we really need to build some momentum this weekend."
The Cougars welcome a field of 15 teams, including West Coast Conference foes Saint Mary's and San Diego, as well as Utah teams Utah Valley, Utah State and Southern Utah. Teams will play 36 holes on Friday and 18 holes on Saturday on the 7,142-yard, par-72 course.
