Next Round as Defending Champs

Oct. 14, 2007

Los Angeles, CA (Oct. 14) - It has been a month since the Loyola Marymount men's golf team saw action, last playing on Sept. 11 in the first tournament of the season. They will finally be back in action this Monday and Tuesday at the Cal State Northridge Bill Cullum Invitational held on the Wood Ranch Golf Club in Simi Valley. The Lions enter the tournament as the defending champs, shooting a three-round 873.

The Lions are no stranger to the Bill Cullum Invitational. This will be the eighth time in nine years the Lions will make an appearance in CSUN's tournament. A year ago, junior All-American Brian Locke led the Lions to the team title as he claimed the individual title with a nine-under 207, the lowest score in the 11-year history of the tournament. It was one of four individual titles on the season for Locke in 2006-07.

Wood Ranch Golf Club is a par-72, 6,796-yard course. The 54-hole tournament features Cal State Bakersfield, Drake, Gonzaga, Idaho State Long Beach State, the Lions, Portland, Sacramento State, Southern Utah, UC Riverside, UC Santa Barbara, Utah State, Utah Valley State, Weber State and two teams from host CSUN.

The Lions opened the season at the Saint Mary's Invitational with a 10th place finish over a month ago. Leading the charge was freshman John Lim, who was just a stroke out the lead heading into the final round before finishing his collegiate debut at 12th.
