HOUSTON - Some of the nation's premier collegiate men's golf teams will compete this weekend at The Golf Club of Houston during the second Bayou City Collegiate Championship.

Hosted by the University of Houston and Rice University, the three-day, 54-hole event tees off Friday morning with the first tee time at 9 a.m. The tournament continues with another 18 holes Saturday and wraps up Sunday morning with the Final Round on the 6,982-yard Tournament Course at The Golf Club of Houston.

The Cougars, who are ranked No. 15 in the Feb. 19 GolfStat rankings, are one of six top-50 teams in the field, joining No. 14 USF, No. 19 Arkansas, No. 21 Texas, No. 29 South Carolina and No. 31 Baylor. Charlotte, Houston Baptist, Lamar, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana Tech, Mississippi State, New Mexico State, Rice and UTSA round out the 15-team field.

This will be the second straight season the Cougars have teamed with Rice to host this event. A year ago, Texas swept the team and individual titles. The Longhorns posted a team score of 22-under-par 842 to finish 21 strokes ahead of the Cougars.

Brandon Stone posted scores of 68-67 during his final two rounds to win medalist honors at 9-under-par 207, three strokes ahead of teammate Julio Vegas. Texas posted three of the tournament's top-4 individual finishers.

Houston junior Kyle Pilgrim opened the tournament with a 68 and finished fifth at 212 to lead the Cougars.


THE LINEUP
Every Houston student-athlete who competed in the fall will take part at the Bayou City Collegiate Championship, director of golf Jonathan Dismuke recently announced.

Seniors James Ross, Curtis Reed and Wesley McClain and juniors Kyle Pilgrim and Roman Robledo will represent Houston in its first team competition of the spring. Sophomores Blair Hamilton and Vincent Martino, senior Bryn Flanagan, redshirt freshman Emmett Oh and freshman Matt Scobie will play as individuals.

Ross stands third on the team with a 72.33 average. After sitting out the entire 2012-13 season as a redshirt, the Edinburgh, Scotland, native has posted two top-7 finishes in his three tournaments to date.

He opened the fall with a seventh-place finish at the Golfweek Conference Challenge, thanks to consecutive 69s in the final two rounds, and most recently placed sixth at the David Toms Intercollegiate in early October.

Pilgrim leads the Cougars with a 71.83 scoring average and has posted four rounds of par or better through six rounds this season. The Colleyville, Texas, native won the Fighting Irish Gridiron Classic in late September, thanks to a final round 66, for the first individual title of his collegiate career.

He became only the 29th player to shoot 66 or lower in any round and become only the ninth player to shoot 66 or better in the third round or later of any tournament

Robledo ranks second on the team with a 72.17 scoring average and is tied with Hamilton for the team lead with seven rounds of par or better.

McClain tied for ninth at the HBU Husky Invitational on Sept. 30-Oct. 1, closing out that tournament with a final-round 69 to finish at 1-under-par 212.

Reed is the only member of the 2013-14 team that has competed in every team-scoring tournament during his collegiate career. The Castroville, Texas, native ranks among Houston's top-20 career leaders in rounds played and strokes.

This season, Reed has posted three top-25 finishes in four tournaments, including an 11th-place showing at the Fighting Irish Gridiron Classic in late September.

Hamilton joins Robledo and Reed as the only Cougars to compete in every team-scoring tournament this season. The Burlington, Ontario, Canada, native posted a career-low 67 in the first round at the season-opening Northern Intercollegiate on Sept. 6-8, 2013, and tied for second at the Fighting Irish Gridiron Classic.

During the summer, Hamilton etched his name in the Houston records book. He became the latest Cougar to compete at the prestigious U.S. Amateur Championship and advanced to the Round of 32 before bowing out. He became the first Houston player to win in match play at the U.S. Amateur Championship since 1999.

Martino is competing as a sophomore in 2013-14 and appeared in three events. The Southlake, Texas, native finished fourth at the Fighting Irish Gridiron Classic after posting a final-round 68.

Scobie recently tied for eighth at 218, thanks to opening-round and career-low 68, at the Rice Intercollegiate earlier this week at Westwood Golf Club. With that showing, the Ajax, Ontario, Canada, native posted his third straight top-10 finish dating back to the fall campaign.

Flanagan competed at the HBU Husky Invitational as an individual on Sept. 30-Oct. 1. The Krugersdorp, South Africa, native opened the tournament with back-to-back 71s and tied for 22nd at 218.

Oh recently joined Scobie at the Rice Intercollegiate, tying for 29th with a score of 227.
