LARAMIE, Wyo. -
Only one round of play was completed Monday at the Bill Cullum/Countrywide Intercollegiate in Simi Valley, California. The University of Wyoming Cowboy golfers sit tied for eighth place of 15 teams after the completed morning round with a seven-over-par 295. The second round was suspended by darkness before all participants could finish and will be completed this morning. The third and final round will immediately follow.
"We were able to complete our second round and did not have a very good afternoon," said UW head coach Joe Jensen. "Our morning round was okay, but we made some mistakes and had some big numbers in the afternoon. Dan (Silva) played two good rounds and I'm proud of him.
"We will probably start the third round near the bottom of the field and will have to claw our way back. This team will play better and we want to finish our fall season on a good, positive note. We come to win every tournament and still have a lot to play for."
Wyoming's top four golfers had very similar rounds to begin the tournament. Eric Baily and Dan Silva carded 73's, Niel King shot 74 and Jeff Franks came in at 75.
Saint Mary's is the team leader after the one completed round with a 10 under-par 278. Weber State trails by eight shots after posting a two under-par 286. Individually, Liam Kendregen of Saint Mary's is the leader after one round, carding a five under-par 67, which is two shots up on a trio of players at three under-par 69.
The Bill Cullum/Countrywide Intercollegiate is being played at the Wood Ranch Golf Club in Simi Valley, Calif. The Wood Ranch plays to a par of 72 and measures 6,753 yards.
Each team played five golfers and counted the four best scores.
