ACU sign up for St Andrews

A Division One college from Texas is the first United States team to sign up for the 2020 College Links Invitational in St Andrews.

A men’s team from Abeline Christian University will participate in the 54-hole tournament, which takes place over the Torrance Course (pictured) at Fairmont St Andrews from 7-12 June.

Two of Scotland’s leading varsity programs – the Universities of Stirling and St Andrews – have already announced their participation with further men’s and women’s team announcements to follow.

The ACU Wildcats play in the Southland Conference. Tom Shaw, Head Men’s Golf Coach at ACU, said the College Links Invitational was a chance for his players to experience the unique challenge of competition play at the Home of Golf.

The event is organised by College Links Golf in association with Fairmont Hotels. Director Raleigh Gowrie said: “We’re delighted to confirm ACU’s participation in next June’s College Links Invitational.

“We are putting together a truly international field for this event and ACU’s decision to take part is really important for us.”
