ATHENS, Ga. --- The 10th-ranked Georgia men's golf team will resume the spring portion of its schedule this weekend in the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters in Las Vegas.

The Bulldogs will play Friday through Sunday at Southern Highlands Golf Club, a par-72, 7,510-yard layout.

Joining Georgia and host UNLV will be Alabama, California, Duke, Florida, Georgia Tech, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Southern Cal, Stanford, Texas, Texas A&M and UCLA.

"The only way to find out if you're improving is when you go against the best teams in the country," Georgia coach Chris Haack said. "That's the best barometer to know if you're getting to that point, how close you are, what your weaknesses are and what you need to work on. We're excited to play against a really strong field. These are the teams we expect to see at the NCAAs. This tournament will be a good test for our guys."

The Bulldogs will use a lineup of senior T.J. Mitchell, juniors Michael Cromie and Brian Carter, and sophomores Nicholas Reach and Sam Straka. Reach has appeared in all five events this year, posting two top-10 finishes, while Mitchell has played in four.

Georgia last played Feb. 17-19 in the spring-opening Puerto Rico Classic. The Bulldogs came in fourth, with Cromie and Reach placing 16th in the individual race.
