Cabo Collegiate moved to San Antonio this season

TPC San Antonio Oaks Course - home of the Valero Open



Overall, this second of the year tournament had to be a wake-up call for the team in playing a very difficult course, under tough conditions (especially the first day) against an elite field.  Finishing 60 shots  back in 14th place of Oklahoma had to be a disappointment for all involved.  The second day 295 total was the one bright spot but the first and third days were tough for all of our players.

No doubt, though, having a rough outcome clearly shows our players what they need to work on to get back to the form we know they can reach.  Given our talent and depth, we can expect a strong response by our team in the upcoming events.

Next up (March 7-9) in just a few days is going to be another difficult challenge at world famed Bandon Dunes Trails course on the Oregon coast, where wind and unique conditions will face our team.  Notable is that freshman Michael Thorbjornsen had great success at Bandon Dunes in the US Amateur last summer, when he came close to winning it all under high wind conditions.  Will be fun to watch how the team bounces back.
