GAINESVILLE, Florida - The Mean Green teed off the spring season Saturday with the first two rounds of the SunTrust Gator Invitational from the Mark Bostick Golf Course on the campus of the University of Florida in Gainesville. Sophomore Ian Snyman led the way for North Texas, combining for 5-over par on the day. The Mean Green are tied for 11th place at 25-over par, 19 shots off of the leader, Arkansas.

"I'm happy with how our guys are competing out there," head coach Brad Stracke said Saturday night. "We all look forward to the final round tomorrow."

Snyman is tied for 19th place individually and came out strong in round one, firing a two-over par 72. The South African native birdied on the 12th hole in the first round, and three more times in round two, on three, four and nine. His 3-over 73 to close the day tied for the team's best second round score with fellow sophomore Thomas Rosenmueller.

Rosenmueller is just a stroke behind his teammate, at 6-over par, and is tied for 32nd individually alongside senior Cory Churchman. The pair shot 73-73 and 72-74, respectively for the Mean Green. Rosenmueller birdied six times, while Churchman did so on four occasions across the two rounds Saturday.

The Mean Green resume action Sunday for the third and final round, and tee off from Gainesville at 7:45 a.m. CT. Fans can follow along with live scoring here, courtesy of GolfStat.
