HAWKEYE INVITATIONAL HISTORY
Iowa has won the last three Hawkeye Invitationals and have won eight since it began in 1975. There were no tournaments played in 1992 and 2003.
QUOTING HEAD COACH Kelly Crawford
“I’m liking the home-course advantage. I think to win this tournament, we’ve got to start off stronger in our first 18 holes and play with more consistency. We have to use our knowledge of the course and minimize mistakes to be successful.”
