“Whereas yesterday we did all the little things well and played very clean golf, today was the exact opposite,” said coach Sean Covich. “I thought that this was some of the worst golf we have played in a few years. We didn’t execute the simplest shots and made it really hard on ourselves today. We have to clean that up before tomorrow if we want to have a chance to climb the leaderboard.”
At the Xavier Invitational in Cincinnati, sophomore Jackson Davenport was 5-over-par, while sophomore Will Stakel and freshman Todd Duncan were 7-over-par after the first 18 holes. The second 18 holes are scheduled to wrap up late Monday afternoon.
Both tournaments will begin their final rounds on Tuesday morning. Results are available at Golfstat.com.
