The Iowa Hawkeyes men’s golf team will open its fall season on at the annual Golfweek Conference Championship Sept. 14-16. The Hawkeyes will drive an hour and a half south to hit the links in Burlington.

Last year, this tournament featured 14 teams representing several conferences, including the SEC, Big 12, and ACC. Oklahoma won the title last year, with Iowa finishing tied for sixth with Winthrop.

Having finished in the top 10 of this event in each of the past three years, the Black and Gold hope to continue the streak going and start the year on the right foot.

This will be the first team competition under new head coach Tyler Stith, who recently took over for Mark Hankins when the latter became a Hawkeye assistant athletics director. Stith was an assistant coach at Minnesota for three years and has ties to Iowa as a former Hawkeye athlete and Hawkeye assistant coach.
