Friday, February 16, 2018

NORMAN, Oklahoma – The UT Tyler men’s golf team received 13 first-place votes to stay No. 1 in the Division III Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Poll. It marked the second consecutive and fourth of five polls this season the Patriots were ranked first. 

The Patriots won three of five tournaments in the fall and will open their spring season in two weeks at the Linda Lowery Invitational on Feb. 26-27 in Austin.

The top-9 teams in the poll remained unchanged beginning with Huntingdon, who tallied three first-place ballots, through Illinois Wesleyan, St. Thomas (MN), Emory, Methodist, Concordia, Washington & Lee, and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps. Emory also received a first-place vote. Saint John’s (MN) grabbed sole possession of No. 10 after sharing it in a three-way tie in the final fall poll.

The next Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Poll will be released March 9.
