    Fall Schedule Includes Two New Events

    The Shockers join the field for the first time at the David Toms Intercollegiate (Oct. 5-6 in Shreveport, La.) and wrap up the first-half slate in the inaugural Intercollegiate at Innesbrook (Oct. 28-29 in Palm Harbor, Fla.).

    The latter gives WSU an early peek at Copperhead Course – site of next April's American Athletic Conference Championship.

    "This is a big event for us," Easterling said. "Not only is it a chance to tune-up for the conference championship, but Innisbrook is just a great test of golf, in general. It's the same course where the PGA Tour plays for the Valspar Championship, and it will really challenge our guys."

    The David Toms is another early-season test against five-time national champion LSU at Shreveport's Southern Trace Country Club. The hosts have won the event in eight of its 10 years of existence.

    "Southern Trace is another great challenge for our guys," Easterling said. "It's a beautiful course and there will be some outstanding teams in the field."

    I like these two new venues. Not sure the Shocks will fare very well at these tournaments but I like that Coach Easterling is willing to challenge his guys against tough courses and tough opponents.
