SAN DIEGO, Calif. -
The University of Wyoming men's golf team shot scores of 299 (+11) and 300 (+12) on Monday at the Barona Collegiate Cup in San Diego, Calif. UW's total of 599 (+23) places them 17th of 18 teams with one round remaining on Tuesday morning.
Wichita State tops the team standings by six strokes at 555 (-21). Nevada's Taylor Coffman and UAB's Zack Sucher are tied for the individual lead at 134 (-10).
"Our chipping and putting is not good right now," said Wyoming head coach Joe Jensen. "We play events with good fields and our flaws are accentuated against top-notch teams. When we're not playing well our mistakes are highlighted. The guys play great in our practice rounds, but don't take that into the actual tournament.
"We're going to stay positive and we're going to just keep kicking on the door. This is our last event of the fall, but our season is not even 50 percent done. We still have a lot to play for and would love to finish on a good note tomorrow."
Highlights for the Cowboys included a second round score of 71 (-1) from junior Zac Fisher and a first round eagle by junior Ryne Paulson, who is playing in his first career event for Wyoming. Fisher has the best two-round total for Wyoming, 146 (+2), which places him in a tie for 44th out of 100 individuals.
The 54-hole tournament is being played at the Barona Creek GC, par 72 and measuring 7,315 yards.
