Second round troubles put golfers in tie for 15th
March 15, 2010
Orlando, Fla. - It was a tale of two different rounds for the UTA golf team Monday at the Rio Pinar Invitational.
After the first 18 holes the Mavericks had posted a 293 and were in the pack chasing host Central Florida along with many other teams.
The afternoon round was a different story for UTA as they 23 more shots to their team total for a 316 and fell out of contention and into a tie for 15th.
Zack Fischer and Bryce Easton led the way in the morning as they each shot a one-under 71 on the par 72, 7,001-yard course. But Fischer had to withdraw from the second round due to illness and Easton finished with an 80. Easton completed the two rounds as the Mavs low player in a tie for 40th at seven-over 151. Fischer will also not be able to play in Tuesday's final round.
Down to just four players, head coach Jay Rees had to count three scores of 80 or higher in the second round which led to the team's highest round of the year.
Bobby Massa started strong with an even par 72 but then registered an nine-over 81 in the second round. He is in a tie for 55th at 153 (+9).
Hunter Brown was the only player to improve during the day as he shot 80 in the first round and a team-low 75 in round two. He is in a tie for 70th at 155 (+11). Wes Worster finds himself in a tie for 83rd after rounds of 79-80 (159, +15).
The tournament concludes on Tuesday with a single round.
