QUOTING COACH ANDERSON — “This tournament has a relatively small field of teams (10). I’m hoping for a very high finish this weekend. We played about 12 rounds during break, hit a lot of balls. We had several guys shoot below par rounds. We’re in great playing shape right now. We’re shooting for a win, and if not a close second.”

COACH Terry Anderson — Anderson is in his 11th year as Iowa’s head coach. Anderson lettered four times in golf at Iowa State. He also serves as the Director of Golf at Iowa’s Finkbine Golf Course. The Iowa Golf Association named him 1998 PGA Professional of the Year.
