ABOUT THE GOODWIN
- Formerly known as the United States Intercollegiate, the event is played at Stanford G.C., which is a highly-rated course that has hosted NCAA Regional Championships, the NCAA Women's Championship, USGA Junior Amateur Qualifying, U.S. Open Qualifying and The Gathering at the Farm, a former Senior PGA Tour event.
- Notable past medalists of The Goodwin include Tom Watson (Stanford, 1971), Corey Pavin (UCLA, 1982), Duffy Waldorf (UCLA, 1985), Billy Mayfair (Arizona State, 1987), Casey Martin (Stanford, 1995) and Patrick Rodgers (Stanford, 2014).
- Marquette’s opportunity to play The Goodwin comes after Stanford was invited to the inaugural Erin Hills Intercollegiate in 2013 - The Cardinal were winners of MU’s annual event at the site of this June’s 117th U.S. Open, while current PGA Tour pro Patrick Rodgers was the individual medalist.
- This year’s edition of The Goodwin features five ranked teams, including No. 1 USC, and the nation’s top-ranked player (Golfweek/Sagarin), Wyndham Clark of Oregon.
- For the third time this season Oliver Farrell was named BIG EAST Male Golfer of the Week, following his 54-hole 220 and fifth place finish at the Mission Inn Spring Spectacular.
- Farrell’s nod made it the fifth time in 10 weeks of honors that a Marquette player has earned league accolades.
- In its second place finish at the Mission Inn Spring Spectacular, all five of MU’s starters finished in the top quarter of the field and all five scored below 228 over the weekend.
- Entering the weekend, Farrell (71.78) and Matt Murlick (73.87) are ranked second and ninth in the BIG EAST in scoring average.
- Henry Klongland’s play as an individual at the Mission Inn Spring Spectucular was resurgent - he posted his lowest event score (221) since the 2014 Windon Memorial, and his best score vs. par (5-over-par) since the 2014 Erin Hills Intercollegiate. Klongland’s eighth-place finish matched the best in his collegiate career (T-8, 2013 Windon Memorial).
