LSU men’s golf opens play Sunday in Jim Rivers Intercollegiate

Coming off a second-place finish in its first action of its five-tournament fall schedule, LSU men’s golf team opens action Sunday in ihe three-day, 54-hole Jim Rivers Intercollegiate in Choudrant, La. at Squire Creek Country Club.

It will be the traditional play five, count four format for the Tigers. LSU tees off in round one at 11:40 a.m. CT off the tenth tee of the par 72 layout that covers 7,105 yards.

LSU’s starting lineup will be senior Garrett Barber, senior Michael Sanders, sophomore Nicholas Arcement, junior Connor Gaunt, and freshman Cohen Trolio. Trey Winstead and Drew Doyle will play as individuals. Trolio goes off at 11:40 a.m. CT and will be followed in 10-minute increments by Gaunt, Arcement, Sanders and Barber.
