Men’s golf is in Miramar Beach, Florida, this week to compete in the Sun Belt Championship.

The Warhawks finished sixth out of nine teams at the Reveille Challenge hosted by Texas A&M. ULM did finish ahead of conference foe UALR.

The team has battled inconsistency this season. The spring semester began with a 15-place finish at the border Olympics. The team then immediately bounced back to take win the Wallace Jones Invitational.

Head coach Walt Williams hopes the team that has placed high will show up this week.

“When we’ve played well, we’ve played really well, and when we’ve played poorly, we’ve struggled,” he said.

He went on to say that he believes the team will at least place top-five with a chance to win.

Georgia Southern comes into the tournament ranked No. 43 by GolfStat. That rank is the highest for any Sun Belt team.

ULM is ranked No. 145, behind seven other teams in the conference.

Calum Hill has been a huge part of the Warhawks’ successes this season. The Scotland native scored his first win at the Wallace Jones Invitational.

Hill has expectations for the team to be able to compete with the higher ranked schools.

“We’ve shown that we’ve beaten a bunch of good teams, we just need to beat all the right teams in one day,” he said.

The lineup is expected to be Hill, Mason Seaborn, Greg Smail, Velten Meyer and G.K. Morrison.
