Warren Crow is a senior business administration major and member of the UMSL men’s golf team.

University of Missouri–St. Louis senior Warren Crow of the UMSL Tritons men’s golf team is among the 84 golfers selected to participate in the 2013 Patriot All-America Invitational at Wigwam Golf Club in Litchfield Park, Ariz.

The 54-hole event will be played Dec. 27-31 with a field that includes collegiate golfers in all divisions from across the county.

“Being selected to play in the Patriot All-America Invitational is a true honor,” said Crow, a business administration major at UMSL. “I am blessed and excited to have this opportunity to represent both my country and my school. Although golf is an individual sport, I would never have this opportunity if it weren’t for my UMSL teammates and head coach Troy Halterman.” 

Players earning PING All-America honors from the previous season in NCAA Divisions I, II and II, plus the NIAIA and NJCAA are eligible to participate in the Patriot All-America. Additionally, a member from the United States Military, Naval and Air Force Academies will be invited annually as well as GCAA national award recipients, members of the most recent Palmer Teams and AJGA All-Americans and Toyota Junior Golf World Cup participants currently enrolled in their freshman year of college. 

The Wigwam Golf Club, along with the Arizona Golf Association and the Golf Coaches Association of America is partnering with the Folds of Honor Foundation to host the Patriot All-America, which is in its third year.

To show support for Folds of Honor, each golfer in the Patriot All-America Invitational will represent a fallen service member. Every player will receive a golf bag at the event’s opening ceremony with the name and branch of service of a fallen military member whom they shall represent. At the conclusion of the event these golf bags will be auctioned with all proceeds designated for the Folds of Honor Foundation which provides post-secondary educational scholarships for children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving our great nation.

Crow earned NCAA Division II PING All-America Honorable Mention honors last season for his individual finish at the NCAA Championships.

Crow tied for 11th place with a score of 218 (74-72-72), just missing a top-10 finish by one stroke. His performance helped the Tritons tie for seventh place in stroke play, which advanced UMSL to match play, where they lost a 4-1 decision to eventual national champion Barry. The Tritons tied for fifth place nationally as a team, the program’s best finish.
