A Look Into the Men’s Golf Season

March 30, 2015

The George Fox University men’s golf team is preparing to tee it up for their upcoming spring season.

With a few great finishes early on in the fall season and a fifth place finish at the Northwest Conference Fall Classic, the Bruins are getting themselves ready to take on the spring.

“Our main goal this season is to do better than the last season,” said freshman Caleb An. “We had a few really good tournaments in the fall and showed everyone what we’re about. If we can build off of that, I think we’ll have a successful spring season.”

With a roster size of nine players, there is a great deal of depth on the team. Taking the course on this spring are four freshmen, four juniors and one senior. The Bruins lost one key player after the fall season, but will return with a couple lineup golfers including Andrew Grove and Zach Mode. The team also gained a new member, freshman Alex Plusquellec, who played football for the Bruins in the fall.

“A great thing about our team is the rotation can change at any time. All of us are good enough to be in the top five; it’s just a matter of who is hot that week,” said Grove. “It shows the depth we have and it also pushes us to be better. To be the best we have to beat the best. That’s why our team is so competitive.”

To kick off their season, the Bruins will play in the Lewis & Clark Invitational on March 14 at Heron Lakes Golf Club.
