St. Thomas Men's Golf is ranked No. 10 in the Division III preseason Golfweek Bushnell poll released Friday.
Coach Scott Proshek's 2017-18 Tommies were ranked No. 1 in the GolfStat computer rankings and as high as No. 3 in the Division III coaches' poll for much of the late fall and spring. They swept team titles last October at the MIAC Championships and the elite 18-team GolfWeek tournament, then tied for 11th out of 42 teams in May at the 72-hole national meet.
Proshek, who starts his ninth season as head coach fall 2018, has guided the Tommies to five NCAA top-20 team finishes in the last seven seasons. UST's fifth-place nationals finish in May 2016 was the best in program history.
On the conference scene, St. Thomas has finished in the top four in the 10-team race in each of the last nine seasons, including five top-two places.
Also from the MIAC, St. John's is ranked 16th, and Gustavus was among the top teams receiving votes just out of the top 25.
