Tigers in Eighth at Wolfpack Intercollegiate
Oct. 4, 2010
RALEIGH, N.C.— The University of Memphis men’s golf team is in eighth place after two rounds at the Wolfpack Intercollegiate.
The Tigers posted team scores of 297-287—584 at the par-71, 7,358-yard Lonnie Poole Golf Course, Monday. Jack Belote paced the Tigers with rounds of 750-75—145 on the first day. Belote is in a tie for 25th position after the first day of competition. Steve Lee posted back-to-back 73’s to land in a tie for 32nd place heading into the final round.
“It was a tough day,” Memphis head coach Grant Robbins said. “Jonathan was dealing with food poisoning and a couple others were really struggling with their swings. I thought we fought hard but just couldn’t get anything going. We just need to go out and put up a good round tomorrow and see what happens.”
Duke leads after turning in rounds of 283-275—558, with tournament-host North Carolina State (285-276—561) is three strokes back in second.
The Wolfpack Intercollegiate concludes Tuesday with the playing of the third round. Tee times begin at 8 a.m. (EDT).
