Golf improves team score but drops to 7th at Cabo
Oct. 3, 2010
Baja California Sur, Mexico -
Each of the 12 teams in the Cabo Collegiate improved their scores from the first round on Sunday.
UT Arlington was 10 shots better in the second round but with every other team doing better than the first round, the Mavericks found themselves further out of the lead after the completion of play as they dropped from a tie for fifth into seventh.
"It's a positive result to improve from one round to the next and we accomplished that today," UTA head coach Jay Rees said. "There are still a lot of teams bunched together where we are at and if we have another good round Monday, I think we should be able to finish higher."
The biggest individual mover for the Mavericks Sunday was Zack Fischer. The senior rebounded from an 81 Saturday to a 3-under 69 Sunday. That moved him up to a tie for 22nd.
Worster shot a one-over 73 and is in a tie for ninth at 2-over 146. McConnell is in a tie for 16th after his second consecutive 74.
Enrique Livas, who is playing as an individual shot an even par 72 and is in a tie for 16th at 4-over 148.
Arkansas shot an 8-under team score of 280 and took the lead in the tournament from Houston. Kelly Kraft of SMU shot a 7-under 65 Sunday and is the leader heading into Monday's final round.
