Dechambeau and Higgs look to continue individual success in Oregon

After a successful trip up to the Northwest part of the country in early March, the Mustang’s golf team will return for another crack at success when they play in the Oregon Duck Invite in Eugene, Ore. on Monday.

The meet will take place at the Eugene Country Club, a tough course because of its length and also one that will play very differently than the Bandon Dunes Championship.

The difference this time around, other than the weather conditions, will be the style of the course.

Bandon Dunes is a links style golf course with the course set up to be at the mercy of the elements.

Eugene Country Club is set in a more traditional manner with holes lined by trees and the grass lush to a point Bandon Dunes could only dream of getting to.

SMU will once again look to ride the hot play of Bryson Dechambeau, who has recently been named C-USA player of the week.

The Mustangs have done a good job all year of playing consistent golf with everyone contributing, not necessarily on the same day but over the course of the tournament.

The other key player for the men’s team to have success is Harry Higgs as he is coming off a strong performance in his last tournament.

He was the only other player under par for the Mustangs as he finished with an under two total.

Despite everyone else not quite being on their game, the Mustangs were able to overcome this by having two players with great days but they cannot rely on this in the future.

The meet begins at 8:30 a.m. pacific time Monday with 36 holes of golf followed by 18 holes on Tuesday.
