The University of Wyoming men’s golf team opened play at the Duck Invitational on Monday morning in Eugene, Ore.

Sophomore Kamrin Allen had a couple of his best rounds of the spring to start the tournament off, which is being held at the par-72, 7-165-yard Emerald Valley Golf Course. Allen had four birdies and fired a 73 (+1) during the first round, he then added four more birdies in the second round for a score of 72 (E) and sits tied for sixth place of the 88-man field with a 145 (+1).

“We’re playing a little better and most importantly we are being competitive,” Wyoming head coach Joe Jensen said. “We had really good play from plenty of our guys today but this is a tough course. We know there is still work that needs to be done.”

Senior Brent Baylon was steady in both rounds on Monday, as he shot a 70 (-2) in the morning and a 75 (+3) in the afternoon to put him tied for sixth with 145 (+1). Senior Eddie Stewart carded a 79 (+7) in the first round with a 73 (+1) in the afternoon, to put him in a tie for 55th with 152 (+8). Freshman Ryan Wallen, not playing as an individual for the first time this year, recorded a first round score of 82 (+10), and a 76 (+4) during the second round. 

Senior Eric Parish shot an 85 (+13) in the first round and finished the day with a 76 (+4) after the lunch break. Playing as an individual, junior Cameron Lindell shot a two-round total of 157 (+13) on Monday and is tied for 76th.

After the first two rounds, Byron Meth of Pacific has a one-stroke lead over Minnesota’s Jose Mendez.

Oregon State is currently the team leader with a 582 (+6), with Oregon two-shots behind for second place.

“We need a little more consistency,” Jensen said.  “We had a great week of practice and we have an opportunity to go out and play well tomorrow. The guys have to get their mind right and come out with a positive attitude for tomorrow so we can finish strong.”

The final round will begin at 9:30 a.m. MT on Tuesday with live scoring available at golfstat.com.
