The tournament will be played at the Whirlwind Golf Club at Wild Horse Pass in Chandler, Ariz., and will feature 20 collegiate teams, along with select individuals from other programs.
A year ago, the Cowboys enjoyed an outstanding finish at the Cowboy Classic, placing third as a team in a 15-team field, and two Cowboys placed in the Top Five individually. Those two Cowboys were current UW senior John Murdock and former Cowboy Arron Lickteig, who both tied for third place at 209 (-7).
