DURHAM, N.C. – The Baylor men’s golf team travels to Durham, N.C., to compete in the third annual Duke University Rod Myers Invitational this weekend.
The two-day event, 54-hole event will be played at the par-72, 7,136-yard Duke University Golf Club. Teams are slated to play the first and second rounds on Saturday, with Baylor’s first tee time at 7:44 a.m. CT.
