" SALT LAKE CITY — The University of Colorado arrived here Wednesday evening in advance of the 57th Annual Pac-12 Golf Championships eager to show its colleagues they belong among the premier schools in the conference. Senior Philip Juel-Berg, juniors Ethan Freeman and Jeremy Paul, sophomore John Souza and freshmen Wilson Belk and Ross Macdonald will represent the Buffaloes in Utah to compete for the Buffaloes. It’s an interesting sextet … the three upperclassmen have played in a combined seven Pac-12 Championships, while the youngsters are all appearing in their first league event. The six will start attacking the Salt Lake Country Club course on Friday with 36 holes, followed by 18 each on Saturday and Sunday. This will be the highest elevation the Pac-12’s have ever been played – 4,800 feet – that is until next year when CU hosts the event at Boulder Country Club. What might make the 7,209 yard, par-72 layout at Salt Lake even more challenging could be the weather, with rain expected through Thursday night and possibly into Friday, although the forecast appears to be much better now than it did at the beginning of the week. ... Stanford, ranked No. 4 by both Golfweek and GolfStat, is the defending champion, with Southern California ranked No. 2 and 6, respectively in each. The Buffs finished eighth in their inaugural Pac-12 appearance in 2012, and dipped to 10th in 2013, before claiming fourth in 2014 and 11th a year ago. The margin between finishing third or fourth and way down the line in the Pac-12 has often been as minimal as 30-40 strokes … but over 72 holes and an extra scorer compared to many other league meets. Colorado’s last league title was the 1968 Big 8 crown. NOTES: Colorado is 106-50-1 against Division I competition (97-37-1 outside of the Pac-12), clinching a better than .500 record and thus has met the first criteria for selection into the NCAA Regionals (May 16-18) ... CU has qualified for the postseason each of the last three seasons and six times in nine years under Edwards … Opening pairings are by random draw (sans the defending champ, Stanford, which opens in the first group on No. 1); Colorado is paired with Arizona and Oregon State and will tee off on No. 1 from 9:30-10:20 a.m. MDT (Round 1) and from 2:30-3:20 p.m. (Round 2) … The NCAA Championship selections will be announced live on the Golf Channel on Thursday, May 5 beginning at 7:30 a.m. MDT (also streamed live on its website) ... Colorado will host the 2017 Pac-12 Championship at Boulder Country Club next April 28-30; it will be Colorado’s first chance to host a conference championship since the Big 8 meet in 1972 … Live scoring will be available at www.golfstat.com.
