Rams golf heads back to California

Oct. 26, 2012

Next On The Tee

After a steady team performance at the Alister MacKenzie Invitational, the Rams head back to
the west coast to participate in the Pacific Invitational in Stockton, Calif. Freshman Dominic
Kieffer paved the way for the Rams in Fairfax, shooting a three-round total of 208 (-5), as he
looks to build off his impressive success.

“Last tournament I didn’t really pay attention to the leader boards or scores and just focused on
my own game,” Kieffer said. “It’s the ones who stay consistent that are the ones who come out
on top, and consistency was my main goal of the week.”

Coach Newton will once again see his players against some of the heaviest competition in the
country, but some much needed down-time will help his Rams heading into Stockton.

“We have really tried to manage our fatigue level as well as maintain our academics since
we have played five events in seven weeks,” Coach Newton said. As for the upcoming
tournament, “We aren’t focused on a result. We are trying to remain focused on doing the little
things right and the result will take care of itself.”

Play starts Monday, Oct. 29 thru Wednesday Oct. 31 with 18 holes being played each of the
three days. Play will begin at 9 a.m. MT time Monday thru Wednesday.

The Course

The Pacific Invitational will be played at Brookside Country Club, which is a 6,777 yard par 72
golf course. Molded out of the fertile San Joaquin Valley landscape, world-renowned course
architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. has created this championship course as picturesque as it is
challenging.

The Rams (54), will be up against BYU (58), Charlotte (74), CSU-Northridge (216), Denver
(87), Fresno State (55), Kansas State (95), Nevada (118), Pacific (113), Sacramento State (NA),
