WHAT THEY SAID

“It was a great experience coming up here,” said head coach Kevin Fillman after the conclusion of the Hartford Hawks Invitational. “It gave our guys the opportunity to play a Fantastic golf course on different grass than we’re used to. Playing shots from high, wet Bent grass is an experience in itself. Getting the chance to play 54 holes with UCF is a whole other experience. We need to learn something from everything we do, and we’ll learn from the past few days.”

UP NEXT:

The men’s golf team next travels to Greenville, North Carolina where they will compete in the Ironwood Collegiate Classic, Hosted by Eastern Carolina on October 3rd and 4th.
