The University of Montana women's golf team is off to Columbia, Mo., to compete against centrally-located teams in the Johnie Imes Invitational on Monday and Tuesday.

Montana is slated to play 36 holes the first day and 18 holes on the second day of competition at The Club at Old Hawthorne course. The course is 6,234 yards and par 72.

The tournament is a fundraiser held in conjunction with Mizzou to benefit the Susan G. Komen For the Cure Foundation. Montana will join 17 other teams including Colorado State, Missouri State, Kansas State and Mississippi State.

The Grizzlies competed last week the Cougar Cup hosted by Johnie Imes. The team struggled a little on the difficult but had a strong last round and want to carry that momentum over to this tournament.

"I'm excited for us to head to Missouri," said head coach Emily Milberger. "This is our first time at this event. I am looking forward to playing some centrally-located teams and we expect a strong field. We are coming off a strong finish from the last tournament, and we are expecting another strong performance at this tournament. The girls feel like they have gotten into a rhythm and are really building some momentum."

Live scoring will be available on Golfstat.com and a full recap will follow the completion of each day on GoGriz.com.
