NM State looks to ride hot hand after Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate championship

TULSA, Okla. – NM State men’s golf will be living on Tulsa Time for a few days as it rounds out the fall season. Competing in The Clerico, hosted by Oral Roberts, the Aggies will close out the fall campaign with 54-holes over two days in Oklahoma.

After a dominating performance at the Herb Wimberly Intercollegiate, NM State looks to ride the hot hand into Tulsa. Garrison Smith will once again play as the Aggies’ number one after winning the Herb Wimberly, shooting a school record 198. Smith moved into No. 6 in the Golfstat individual rankings after his strong showing in Las Cruces.

Lance Christensen Jr. works his way into the NM State lineup and will begin the tournament as the five. Christensen will be the first Aggie to tee off, starting at 8:00 a.m. CT. Alexandre Bauduin remains in the Aggie lineup this week and sits in the fourth slot of the lineup.

Freshman Javier Delgadillo continues to solidify his role as a staple in the NM State lineup and will play as the three this week. Delgadillo will be joined by 2022 NCAA Bryan Regional qualifier Aidan Thomas, who will remain as the number two in the Aggie grouping.

Players will be competing for an entry to an event on the Korn Ferry Tour. The individual winner of The Clerico will earn an exemption into the newest Korn Ferry Tour event in 2023, the Compliance Solutions Championship.
