The Iowa men’s golf team will host the 21st-annual Hawkeye-Great River Entertainment Invitational this weekend at Finkbine Golf Course. The 54-hole tournament will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday with a shotgun start.

The 12 participating schools will play 36 holes on Saturday and 18 on April 13.

Iowa is seeking a sixth NCAA appearance this season. The team finished second out of 15 at the Arizona State Thunderbird Invitational.

Junior Brian Bullington was named the Big Ten Golfer of the Week after his career-best performance at Arizona State, where he shot 7 strokes under par.

The Hawkeyes finished runner-up in last year’s Hawkeye-Great River Entertainment Invitational, and Steven Ihm took home the individual title. The senior impressively took home the first-place title at the Annual Sunnehanna Amateur on June 16 — PGA Tour professionals, including as Rickie Fowler and Webb Simpson, have also won this title early in their careers.

Ihm and Bullington, along with Raymond Knoll and Carson Schaake, make up Iowa’s varsity lineup; Nate Yankovich, Ryan Marks, and Voramate Aussarassakorn will compete as individuals.
