USF Senior Writer

TAMPA, SEPT. 9, 2016 – No. 22 USF men’s golf will unveil a new-look lineup in the program’s first rounds of competition since the NCAA Championship.

Head coach Steve Bradley’s Bulls will play 36 holes Saturday and 18 more Sunday at the Rod Myers Invitational. USF’s first lineup of the fall will include returners Claudio Correa, Cristian DiMarco and Rigel Fernandes, along with newcomers Jimmy Jones and Priyanshu Singh. FreshmanKyle Flexsenhar will compete as an individual.

 “I’m excited to get our new players into the lineup and see what they have,” Bradley said. “We’re looking forward to good things from all of them.”

USF will begin teeing off 8:22 a.m. Saturday at Duke University Golf Club (par 72, 7,154 yards). No. 23 Duke’s course was the site of the NCAA Championship in 1962 and 2001.

“It’s a good, quality golf course with elevation changes,” Bradley said. “It’s got some nice length to it and you’ve got to play really well to score here. It’s a championship-caliber golf course.”

Most of USF’s lineup is equipped with NCAA Championship experience after the Bulls booked back-to-back trips to the final rounds.

USF added more top-level talent to its lineup with the addition of Jones, a two-time All-American at Florida Southern College. Before transferring to USF, the junior from Tampa helped the Mocs advance to the NCAA Division II Championship match play semifinals.

Singh, also a junior, is a former Division II All-American out of Nova Southeastern who turned in top-10 finishes in his first two events last spring. Flexsenhar, a freshman, earned a spot on the trip as an individual after helping Lake Mary High School capture consecutive state titles and a regional championship.

“With our new players, we’re trying to establish how we do things on the road, how we do things in tournaments and how we dissect a golf course,” Bradley said. “We’re also trying to learn how they prefer to play, too.”

USF is looking forward to competing against a talented field that includes No. 14 Wake Forest, No. 18 Florida State, East Carolina, East Tennessee State, Florida Southern, Kansas, Liberty, Loyola (Md.), North Carolina, Penn State, Princeton and UC-Davis.

“We need to play really well in order to be competitive here,” Bradley said.
