NCAA Central District Invitational Notes

Some tidbits from today's final round at the NCAA Central District Invitational at River Wilderness:

  • The 8 a.m. shotgun was delayed 20 minutes due to heavy fog.
  • Because the start time was pushed back, one team left pretty quick after the round. That team was Iowa State, who turned in the scorecards and grabbed a box lunch before bolting for the flight.
  • Speaking of the Cyclones, they won the event so their hardware is coming via mail.
  • About 45-50 homes were used in the golf course community to house the players and coaches for the past few days. It took on what head pro Jack McFaul called, "a sorority type event." That camaraderie between the teams and members was a neat wrinkle as players and coaches didn't stay in hotels like other college tourneys.
  • Russ Petrie, a Michigan State alumnus and River Wilderness member, said he'd like to have an alumni event from the schools participating in next year's event. It would run just before the two-day, 54-hole tournament commences.
  • McFaul said the dates for the 12th edition are already set for President's Day weekend, 2012.
