Golf to host open tryout tourney
Siloam Springs, Ark. (August 4, 2011) — The John Brown University men’s golf team will host an open tryout tournament for current JBU students on Friday and Saturday, August 26-27 at The Creeks in Cave Springs, Arkansas.
Each participant will complete two rounds, with round one beginning at 3 p.m. on Friday under a stroke play format.
“I’d like to give students that have the ability to help the team be successful this year, the opportunity to do so,” said head golf coach Brian Thomas. “The format will resemble the qualifying events that the team competes in throughout the year. This will allow the participants to get a better feel for the tournament atmosphere, and it will also allow me to really evaluate each participant’s performance.”
To cover the cost of green fees, the tournament has an entry fee of $40, which will be reimbursed if the participant is chosen to be a part of the team.
