UTEP Men’s Golf Opens Fall Season at Air Force

UTEP Men’s Golf is set to open the 2019 fall season this weekend when head coach Scott Lieberwirth and the Miners travel to compete in the 51st Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational.

“We are excited to get back and play in our first tournament of the year,” Lieberwirth said. “We have enjoyed some success at this event in the past, but all five of our starters are new to this tournament. It will be their first time playing in this event, so there will be a little bit of a learning curve before we get comfortable around the greens, but the golf course is in fantastic shape. It is out there to score if you are smart. That is the name of our game – being smart, understanding situationally where we are at and where to leave the ball. If you leave it in good spots, you will have a good time.”

The 54-hole event is hosted by the U.S. Air Force Academy and features an 18-team field. All the action kicks off on Friday, Sept. 6 in USAF Academy, Colorado. The three-day invitational will be held at the 72-par, 7,511-yard Blue Course at Eisenhower Golf Club.

A total of 18 teams are scheduled to compete in this year’s event, including Air Force, Boise State, Cal Baptist, Cal State Northridge, Colorado, Drake, New Mexico State, Northern Colorado, SIUE, Southern Utah, Texas State, UC Davis, Utah State, Utah Valley, Valparaiso, Weber State and Wyoming.

UTEP will be represented by Oskar Ambrosius (Jr., Viborg, Denmark), Eduardo Gonzalez (Sr., San Luis Potosi, Mexico), Jeffery Lebeau (Fr., Sherbrooke, Quebec), Jacob Presutti (Fr., Ontario, Canada) and Greg Yellin (R-So., El Paso, Texas).

On Friday and Saturday, the teams will tee off beginning at 7:30 a.m. MT, while Sunday’s tee time is slated for 7:15 a.m. MT. A practice round will be held on Thursday starting at 8 a.m. MT.

The Blue Course at the Eisenhower Golf Club opened in 1959 and is named after former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who took part in the dedication ceremony. The course is currently ranked as the third-best military course in the nation (PGA.com) and the 24th-best college course in the country (Golf Week).

Colorado took home the title in last year’s tournament with a 9-under-par 855.
