Monroe, La. – The ULM men's golf team is set to head to Washington to compete in Seattle University's Redhawk Invitational beginning on Monday. The Warhawks will play on the same course that hosted the 2015 U.S. Open, won by Jordan Spieth.

-The Warhawks will send Hogan Arey, Guillaume Fanonnel, Joao Girao, Afonso Girao and Andoni Etchenique to the course in Washington as their five-member team.
-Last time out, the Warhawks had a strong finish at the Little Rock/First Tee Classic, as the team finished tied for seventh.
-The Warhawks will play on the same golf course that featured the 2015 United States Open where Jordan Spieth outlasted the field on this course in Washington.
-This year's tournament will feature: ULM, Iowa State, Sacred Heart, Ohio, Stetson, Depaul, BYU, Notre Dame, TCU, Campbell, Santa Clara, Grand Canyon, Princeton, Little Rock, LMU, Alabama State, Northwestern and the host Seattle.

Thought on the Event: We are looking forward to travelling to the Northwest and playing Chambers Bay. The course will be very challenging as a former US Open site. The weather will also be a factor with temperatures in the 50's for highs with chance of rain. This will be a homecoming of sorts for Hogan Arey as he will have 10-plus family members and friends making the trek up from Corvallis, Oregon. Either way, we must be mentally tough this week in order to compete and be productive. We look forward to the challenge.
-Following the Redhawk Invitational, the Warhawks will head to Gastonia, North Carolina for the Gary Koch Invitational. That two-day event will begin on April 10.
