“We have to continue to stick with our routine, trust our preparation and then go out and execute quality golf shots and quality decisions,” coach Sean Covich said. “Once we learn to put all those things together, we will see success. These guys have talent, the future is bright, but right now, we are continuing to gain experience the hard way. Eventually, these experiences will pay off.”
The Mountaineers will return to action on Sunday for The Hootie at Bulls Bay Intercollegiate in Charleston, South Carolina.
