BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The No. 14 UAB men’s golf team will head to Palo Alto, Calif. for The Goodwin. The three-round event, held at the Stanford University Golf Course, will run from Friday, March 28 – Sunday, March 30.

Head coach Alan Murray will send out seniors Sam Love, Wilson McDonald, and Thomas Sutton, junior Paul Dunne, and sophomore Martin Rohwer for the Blazers’ fifth event of the spring season. It marks the seventh time that UAB will employ this lineup.
