Men's Golf at Houston All-American Intercollegiate Postponed
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Lobo men’s golf’s upcoming scheduled tournament, the All-American Intercollegiate hosted by the University of Houston, has been postponed due to severe winter weather expected to affect much of the South, Houston announced Thursday.
The Lobos were set to compete at the three-day tournament Sunday through Tuesday (Feb. 14-16) along with Baylor, Georgia State, Lamar, Louisiana, Louisville, New Mexico State, North Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Rice, Sam Houston State, Texas, Texas A&M, ULM, UT Arlington and UTSA.
“It is unfortunate the weather has caused the All-American to be postponed,” UNM Head Coach Glen Millican said. “It is a great event on a really good golf course and we were certainly looking forward to the trip to Houston. We still have a great schedule remaining and look forward to our next event in San Diego.”
Houston released that “temperatures are expected to fall into the teens with ice and wintry mix being possible throughout the area in the coming days.”
“We look forward to hosting the All-American Intercollegiate every year, and this was a difficult decision,” Houston Director of Golf Jonathan Dismuke said. “For the safety and best interests of all the student-athletes and coaches traveling to the Houston area this weekend, we elected to postpone.”
Dismuke added that he is working with the teams and the Golf Club of Houston to reschedule the tournament in March.
Next up for the Lobos will be the Lamkin San Diego Classic hosted by San Diego on March 8-10 in Chula Vista, Calif.
