The University of Minnesota men’s golf team is in fifth place after the first 36 holes of the Wolf Run Intercollegiate in Zionsville, Ind. Freshman Jose Mendez and junior Tyler Lowenstein are tied for 14th individually at 6-over.
The Golden Gophers were tied for fourth place following the first round, and stayed in about the same position at the end of the day. Their combined two-round score was 599 (+31). Lowenstein posted a 1-over 72, the Gophers’ lowest score of the day, in the second round.
“Overall, I think everyone’s a little disappointed about today, but we will get up ready to play tomorrow,” head coach John Carlson said. “We played a little better in the afternoon than the morning. Tyler Lowenstein played pretty well all day, and it was nice to see him carry that over from the Gopher Invitational.”
Illinois (-5) holds a 25-shot lead over second-place Kentucky. The Illini's Thomas Detry (-4) leads individually, directly ahead of two teammates. The weather at Wolf Run Golf Club ranged from about 65 to 70 degrees, with 8- to 15-mile per hour winds.
