Winter Update!

Greetings and Happy New Year from “The Farm” ! I hope this finds
everyone well and rested after a nice holiday break. I wanted to give a
few updates on the team as we get ready to start the spring season. We
are really looking forward to getting back at it as we gear up for our
first tournament of the year in Hawaii. The official start of the
spring season kicks off with practice on January 19th and we are excited with what lies ahead for the team.

The guys have been using the holiday to really focus on their fitness and
mental preparation for the year. It’s a tough road to the NCAA’s and we
want to be sure that our guys are mentally and physically sharp for our
busy tournament schedule. The Taylor MadeWaikoloa Invitational is our
first event and a great way to start off the year. We really want to
set the tone early so a good finish in Hawaii is key.

One highlight to the coming year is our tournament here at the Stanford
University Golf Course April 19-20, 2008. The U.S. Intercollegiate is
in its 40th year and it is a great event. We look forward to all the
local support we have received in the past. Following the U.S.
Intercollegiate we will be entering in the exciting home stretch
towards the NCAA’s. Purdue University will be the host venue for the
finals this year and we look forward to defending our National
Championship. With the squad we have and our experience from last year,
I am confident we have what it takes to repeat and we look forward to
the challenge. I will keep you up to date on all our accomplishments as
the season unfolds. Thank you again for all your support and interest
and on behalf of the team we wish you all the best in 08”.
