Dear Rebel Golf Family,

Spring break has arrived and the team will spend it competing in the National Invitational Tournament at OMNI Tucson National. The course, as always, is in excellent condition and the strong field combined with perfect weather will make for some low scoring this week.

Our Team Lineup this week at N.I.T. (Catalina Course) is as follows:
1. Harry Hall  (Sr)
2. Jack Trent (So)
3. David Rauch (Fr)
4. Justin Kim (Jr)
5. JJ Gresco (So)
Individual Competitor (Sonoran Course): Chris Ebster (So)

The tournament competition is a 4 low scores from 5 players format with 36 continuous holes to be played on Monday March 18th and the final 18 holes to be completed on Tuesday March 19th.

As is customary at this course, players are challenged to traverse the bridge between hole 14 green and hole 15 tee with a putting stroke. After Zane Thomas managed the feat for two consecutive years, it has been named the “Thomas Bridge”.

This year, rookie David Rauch showed us some German precision to safely thread his ball across the dead center of the bridge.

Many thanks One and All for cheering us along!

We have some fun opportunities for our Foundation Members to spend time with the team.
Here are a couple already on the calendar with more information to follow:
Wednesday May 1st – NCAA Regional Selection Show Party @ Spanish Trail CC
Monday November 4th – Rebel Golf Day @ Las Vegas Country Club
