QUOTEABLES

Head Coach Tim Baldwin

Thought on the Round: We didn’t convert opportunites today. Joao was consistent throughout the tournament this week. It was a dissapoiniting finish for us here and now we have to bounce back on a tough course next week. 

UP NEXT

-The Warhawks return to the course on Monday, April 3 when the team makes the trek to Seattle for the Chambers Bay Invitational. The Warhawks will play on the same course that hosted the 2015 U.S. Open where Jordan Spieth outlasted the field to win the title.
