KAHUKU, Hawaii -
The Wyoming Cowboy golf team shot 296 (+8) on Tuesday at the Turtle Bay Resort College Invitational in Kahuku, Oahu, Hawaii.
UW's two-round total of 581 (+5) puts them in 19th place of 21 teams. The 54-hole, three-day tournament will conclude with one final round of 18 holes on Wednesday.
The Cowboys scored 285 (-3) on Monday.
The #25 ranked Tennessee Volunteers maintained their lead in the team standings and now are ahead of the field by 11 strokes. UT has totaled 539 (-37) over 36 holes. Second place is UC Irvine at 550 (-26).
"We began today's round pretty well, but finished poorly," said Cowboy head coach Joe Jensen. "However, there are still a bunch of teams within striking distance and we're hanging in there."
The best round of the day for the `Pokes came from Mike May, who shot 71 (-1). May is currently tied for 58th in the very large field of 115 participants.
Wyoming's Zach Zaremba and Phil Henzlik carded rounds of 74 (+2), while Gabe Maier and Aaron Johnson shot 77 (+5).
UC Irvine's Sean Shahi is atop the individual standings with a score of 132 (-12).
Wednesday's final round will move back to the shorter, more scorable Fazio course, where Monday's first round was played. Tuesday's round was competed on the longer, more difficult Palmer course.
"With the move back to the Fazio course for the last round I anticipate that scores will go low again," added Jensen. "For us to catch some people we will have to shoot under par. We want to finish the fall with our best round of the year."
