MENZEL ON BYU ENTRADA AND MOUNTAIN VIEW CLASSIC:
“The team is very excited to get back on the road. We had a good outing at Westbrook and we gained a lot of confidence. We’ve come back and got to work on our longer clubs and gotten after our wedge game as well as working on our short putts. We are ready to get back out and try to shoot lower numbers. “
