ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - UCF's lineup is set for the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational, which will begin Sunday in nearby Windermere. Senior Simon Ward (County Monaghan, Ireland), junior Nuno Henriques (Funchal, Portugal), sophomores Connor Arendell (Cape Coral, Fla.) and Brad Schneider (Valrico, Fla.) and freshman Reid Martin (Mukilteo, Wash.) have all qualified for the three-day, three-round tournament.
Henriques earned a tournament exemption by posting a top-20 finish in the Knights' last event, The Prestige at PGA WEST.
UCF golfers had four rounds of qualifying for Isleworth. Schneider won the qualifying with a four-round total of 291. He was followed by Ward in second.
Arendell and Martin were both coaches' picks after the player with the low-season average for tournament play (Henriques) and low-qualifying average for the fall (Schneider) already qualified.
The Isleworth Collegiate Invitational will serve as UCF's final event of the fall. The tournament includes seven of the top-10 ranked teams in the nation.
