IOWA CITY, Iowa — Four student-athletes from the University of Iowa men’s golf team will be competing as individuals in the Zach Johnson Invitational, October 2-3. Hosted by Drake University, the 54-hole tournament will take place in Des Moines at the par-71 Glen Oaks Country Club that stretches 6,898 yards.
The first round on Monday will begin with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. (CT) for 36 continuous holes. Tuesday’s 18-hole round will also be a shotgun start beginning at 9 a.m. (CT).
Two freshmen — Jaewook Lee of Langley, British Columbia, and Jake Rowe of Portadown, Northern Ireland — will be making their collegiate debuts.
Junior Aaron DeNucci, from Clive, Iowa, who attended Waukee High School, will be making his season debut close to home. In three events last year, DeNucci recorded an 18-hole average of 77.11 with an 18-hole low of 72 at the Schenkel Invitational.
Centerville native, Alex Moorman, will be the fourth Hawkeye competing as an individual. Moorman played in Iowa’s first tournament, the Gopher Invitational, where he shot his 18-hole season-best, 74.
Eleven schools from the Midwest will be competing in the team portion of the tournament: Drake, Eastern Illinois, Green Bay, Indian Hills CC, Loyola-Chicago, North Dakota, Northern Iowa, North Dakota State, Nebraska-Omaha, South Dakota, and Western Illinois.
