GONZAGA HEAD COACH ROBERT GRAY'S THOUGHTS ON THE UPCOMING TOURNAMENT: "Heading into our final event of the fall, our goal is to put three solid rounds together and really improve on our 4th score. If we take care of those things we should have a good finish to the fall season. 

"We haven't been to Wood Ranch for a few years but I have been to the course quite a bit over the years and know the course pretty well. Peter [Gullickson] also played there a number of times this summer, as he lives very close to the course.

"Wood Ranch is a great course and requires the player to be very smart about how they go around the course. The wind can also get pretty strong through that valley, altering the strategy quite a bit. 

"It's our biggest field of the fall with 20 teams. Monday's 36 holes will be a long day so we need to be very patient and stay focused, especially on the final 9 holes."
