Q&A with Oregon State Head Coach Jon Reehoorn
How do you feel about the team heading to regionals?
What are your team goals at regionals?
"Secondly, to keep it simple, the regional championships have a different feel than any other tournament we will play in. Everyone knows what is at stake and it is much more businesslike. We can't be caught up in making it more than it is. We need to play smart and solid golf and then everything will take care of itself."
What are your thoughts on the lineup?
What will make this season a success for you?
