2022/23 MEN'S GOLF Golf regular season news, results and discussion (Team announces schedule; Next tourney Oct. 3-4 hosting in Erie)

With men's golf being one of those sports that has MANY tournaments in both the fall and spring semesters, I wanted to set up a thread that as normal we can use to cover anything that comes up on and off the course up until the post-season begins with the Pac 12 Championships (scheduled to begin April 28th, 2023 this upcoming academic year). (I'll give the post-season its own thread(s).)

I'm starting this thread now as I see the team has released both its current year schedule (https://cubuffs.com/sports/mens-golf/schedule/2022-23) and roster (https://cubuffs.com/sports/mens-golf/roster/2022-23?&sort=class). Per the schedule, the 1st tournament is at Notre Dame Sept. 4-5.

Article about the season schedule - https://cubuffs.com/news/2022/8/11/edwards-announces-2022-23-mens-golf-schedule.aspx

BOULDER — University of Colorado men's head golf coach Roy Edwards announced the team's 2022-23 schedule Wednesday, and it once again features many familiar annual tournaments along with a couple of events for the first time in decades.

Edwards is entering his 17th season at the reins of the Buffalo program, with this team having as much if not more potential as he's had during his tenure. Despite being young – one senior, six sophomores and two freshmen – the sophomores are all experienced and the two frosh include the state of Colorado's top prep performer. Leading the way is sophomore Justin Biwer, who set 19 school records as a true freshman last season.

The season gets underway on Sept. 4-5 in the Notre Dame Fighting Irish Classic, the fourth time the Buffaloes are entered in the prestigious meet; CU finished ninth out of 14 teams last October in the event, with true frosh Dylan McDermott finishing third with a 7-under 203 score.

"We are playing one of the best schedules in the country once again this year, and as always on some of the top courses," Edwards said. "We typically start the season at Air Force, but with Notre Dame moving earlier we will be starting in South Bend this fall, which always features one of the best fields in the nation. We really like the sequencing as we round out the fall on Maui in the Kaanapali Intercollegiate.

GREAT start to the academic year for sophomore Dylan McDermott as he earn's medalist honors in the 1st tournament for the Buffs, and the team overall finishes solidly in 5th (out of 15 teams)!

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The University of Colorado men's golf team recorded a solid performance here Monday in its 2022-23 season with a fifth place finish in the Notre Dame Fighting Irish Invitational, but the story of the day for the Buffaloes was an individual win with a record-setting performance by sophomore Dylan McDermott.

Florida let from wire-to-wire in winning with a 21-under par 819 score, holding off a charge from Georgia Southern, which was 12-under par for the final round to jump into second with an 820 total. North Carolina slipped into third (821), with host Notre Dame fourth (821). The Buffaloes nabbed fifth with a third straight subpar round of their own, finishing with a 7-under 833 score.

McDermott, who hails from Granite Bay, Calif., turned in a 10-under par, 69-66-65—200 scorecard over the three rounds here on the 7,023-yard, par-70 Warren Golf Course layout, setting a CU record for the lowest gross score, whether it was a par-70, par-71 or par-72 configuration. In doing so, he took over the top spot in the tournament when he birdied Nos. 15 and 17 coming into the club house.

McDermott was caught late by North Carolina's David Ford, who had two birdies and an eagle in his final five holes to finish with a 6-under 64 to force a playoff for the trophy; both get credit for a win. Both players scored par on No. 1, the first playoff hole (372-yard, par-4), and then moved to No. 6 (473-yard, par-4), where both players landed in a green-side bunker and went on to bogey; Ford missed a 10-foot putt for the win. The duo then played No. 1 again, where both made par from about 15 feet to go back to No. 6; McDermott two-putted from about 15 feet while Ford made bogey.

"Dylan was obviously really good from start to finish," said CU head coach Roy Edwards. "He took a big step forward and did an incredible job in the playoff. Both players had chances to win and he just kept in it. He hit a great approach into the fourth playoff hole and all he needed was two putts for the win.

"The impressive thing about the playoff is that he was very steady emotionally and recognized that he had a lot of adrenalin going," Edwards continued. "Normally someone might not realize that, and his heart might have been beating quickly, but he was in the zone emotionally and that allowed him to trust his abilities."

McDermott is the first Buff to win a major tournament since Daniel O'Loughlin won CU's Mark Simpson Invitational in 2019; it's also the first by a CU duffer in an out-of-state tourney since Yannik Paul claimed honors in the 2018 Arizona State Sun Devil Thunderbird Invitational (he shot an 11-under 202 in that event, now the third-lowest gross score at CU).

"This was a really good way to start the season, and was very proud of the team and our competitiveness," said Edwards. "We saw a lot of good golf across the board. Justin was his usual steady self, and Hunter and Tucker had nice debuts as Buffaloes. Jack had a nice day today and that should be a springboard for him to the season."

Colorado returns to action later this week in the Air Force Miranda Invitational in Colorado Springs, which takes place Saturday through Monday at AFA's Eisenhower Blue Golf Course, which is right next to Falcon Stadium. With the football team playing at Air Force at 1:30, fans are welcome to watch the golf as CU will tee off in the morning.

NOTES: In the most recent WAGR (World Amateur Golf Rankings) of August 31, McDermott came in ranked 1,059th and bested three in the top 20: North Carolina's Dylan Menante (ranked 7th) and Ford (16th) and Florida's Ricky Castillo (19th) along with several others, including teammate Biwer (515th). The previous record for the low gross score in CU annals was a 9-under 201 (64-67-70), set by Beau Schoolcraft in the 2011 Wyoming Cowboy Classic at Scottsdale … Colorado was the only team in the field competing without a single upperclassman (four sophomores and a true freshman) … They responded by being the first team in CU history to score three subpar round in a 54-hole tournament that took place on a par-70 course … The average score for all 252 rounds 71.37 (the final round had the high of 71.87) … The Buffs played the par-3s at 7-over (tied for seventh in the field), the par-4s at 10-over (fifth) and the par-5's at 9-under (eighth) … CU had the fourth-most birdies (51; Florida led with 57) and the seventh-most pars (171; Kansas had the high with 183).

Looks like the team had a solid round yesterday at the tournament at the Air Force Acadamy course, and were in 2nd place. (They've slipped to a tie for 4th as I type this in round 2, but have reported more holes than most teams, so may move up the board some as others' rounds start reporting.)

COLORADO SPRINGS — The University of Colorado men's golf team, fresh off a solid performance four days earlier at Notre Dame, opened up Friday in a second place tie at Air Force's Gene Miranda Invitational.

The Buffaloes shot a 1-under 287, their fourth straight subpar round, and trail in-state rival Colorado State by four shots (the Rams are in at 5-under 283). Cal State-Northridge and Utah State matched CU's score, with rivals New Mexico State and Texas-El Paso tied for fifth with 290 totals.

Sophomore Dylan McDermott once again led CU, as he recorded a 3-under 69 on the 7,541-yard, par-72 Eisenhower Blue Golf Course configuration. It was his fourth straight subpar round to open the 2022-23 season, the most in a row by a Buff since Daniel O'Loughlin had four in the fall of 2019. He did so Friday with four birdies and 13 pars on the 7,541-yard, par-72 Eisenhower Blue Golf Course and is tied for sixth in the massive 120-player field.

"Very encouraged by the day. We really didn't have our 'A' games but everyone hung in there and stayed in the mix, said CU head coach Roy Edwards. "The conditions were fairly tough and the guys had to adjust on the fly. They did a great job competing and staying patient."

Meanwhile in the Miranda Individual Invitational, sophomore Jack Hughes, the defending champion, maintained his love affair with the 6,510-yard, par-72 Eisenhower Silver Course. In winning in 2021, he had three eagles over the three days; he had two more on Friday in carding a 4-under 68 to be in a tie for second (he led CU in eagles last year with six). He also had four birdies, eight pars and four bogeys and is one off the lead.

"Jack Hughes was 4-over through four holes in the individual tournament and rallied to shoot 4-under," Edwards proudly noted. "Really nice playing and staying determined. It was also a solid debut by Robby as well. Jack (Holland) and Freddy didn't play their best, but I expect them to play more to their capabilities the next few rounds."

The second round in both events is set for Saturday. In the main tournament, Colorado will tee off between 8:30 and 9:10 off the No. 1 tee and will be paired with San Jose State, Cal Poly and Northern Iowa. (CU's football team is playing at Air Force at 1:30, fans are welcome to watch the golf before tailgating, as the course is right next to Falcon Stadium). The forecast calls for intermittent rain throughout the day with temperatures in the 50s; it could make for a challenging day as patience might be the key as rounds took right around six hours to complete on Friday.

The individuals will have a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m. off nine different holes (1 and 11 through 18).

NOTES: The school record for the most consecutive rounds in the 60s are seven, done twice (by the Paul brothers, Jeremy in 2016 and Yannik in 2018); four ties the mark for third, previously done by Philip Juel-Berg, Ross Macdonald and O'Loughlin … The average score for all 120 rounds on Friday was 74.92; CU's average was an even par 72.0, just behind CSU (71.8), with all five Buffaloes in the top 34. Next best was UTEP, with its quintet all in the top 55 … The Buffs played the par-3s even (best in the field), the par-4s at 6-over (fifth) and the par-5's at 6-under (tied for third; McDermott played them at 3-under, also third-best in the event … CU tied for the fifth-most birdies (16; Utah State is tops with 21) and the second-most pars (60; Weber State has 61).

Per the leaderboard, nice rally by the Buffs moved them up from 4th to 2nd place at the Air Force hosted tourney that is just ending. (Their 4 scorers were at a combined +2 through 11 or so holes, and then went -6 for the last 7 holes to finish the day at -4, and -5 for the tourney.)

Way to go Buffs!

(Of course, like ALL sports, it's probably always a fool's errand to try and extrapolate a team's prospects based on one competition, especially this early, but if this tourney means anything about the future, looks like our neighbor to the northeast, CSU, might be in for a good (academic) year, as they dominated this tourney, finishing 25 strokes ahead of the 2nd place Buffs. That differential was larger than the 22 strokes the Buffs had over the two schools that tied for 14th place.)

Article after the team finished 9th at the UNM- hosted tourney - https://cubuffs.com/news/2022/9/24/mens-golf-golfers-finish-ninth-at-unm-tucker.aspx

ALBUQUERQUE — The University of Colorado men's golf team had the same basic result here Saturday in the third and final round of New Mexico's William H. Tucker Intercollegiate, that being a strong start but finishing with struggles down the stretch as the Buffaloes finished ninth.

San Diego State held off host New Mexico to win the team title, as the Aztecs won with a 16-under 848 total; the Lobos were eight back at 856. UNLV finished third (858), TCU fourth (860) and Brigham Young fifth (861, as the Cougars shot the best round of the day, an 8-under 280, one of just three subpar scores in the final round).

Colorado appeared to be on its way to scoring a round under par, at one point being 6-under early in the round. But as was the case the first two rounds, the Buffs lost nine strokes to par over the last five holes and wound up closing with a 6-over 294, for an overall score of 16-over 880.

Sophomores Justin Biwer and Dylan McDermott led the Buffaloes here, as both tied for 10th individually with 3-under par 213 scores; McDermott had CU's low round of the day, a 2-under 70 on the 7,546-yard, par-72 UNM Championship Golf Course layout, while Biwer recorded a 1-over 73.

"Justin and Dylan had nice events, ," CU head coach Roy Edwards said. "The rest of us weren't at our best, just kind of labored to get much going. It's a great opportunity for us to get better over the next week and be ready for the Simpson."

The Buffaloes will return to action in nine days, as they will host the 12th Annual Mark Simpson-Colorado Invitational at Boulder Country Club, October 3-4.

NOTES: The average score for all 312 rounds over the two days was 74.18, with a 74.49 average for the final round … The Buffs played the par-3s at 16-over (tied for ninth-best in the field), the par-4s at 35-over (tied for eighth) and the par-5's at just 16-under (11th) … CU tied for the ninth-most birdies after scoring 18 Saturday (44 total; New Mexico topped all with 58) and the eighth-most pars (155; San Francisco led with 169) ... CU posted a 10-8 record in the meet, improving its record against Division I opponents to 42-13 for the season … Biwer has now been under par in 11 of 14 career tournaments, while McDermott has been in the red in seven of 13.
