Mean Green Head Into Final Round At Quail Valley At Even-Par

Oct. 24, 2016

VERO BEACH, Florida - The North Texas men's golf team had a strong start Monday at the Quail Valley Collegiate Invitational, hosted by McNeese at Quail Valley Golf Club in Vero Beach, Florida. The Mean Green currently sit in 10th place at even par through the first two rounds, including a one-under-par performance in round two. Senior Cory Churchman led North Texas on the day, shooting one-under-par overall, after a 71 in the opening round and an even-par 72 to close out day one in round two on Monday.

Churchman currently sits in a tie for 17th individually, after posting six birdies on the day, three in each round. He birdied on the par-four 17th hole twice.

Sophomores Thomas Rosenmueller and Ian Snyman finished day one at even-par, as Rosenmueller shot a pair of 72's, while Snyman was one-under during the first round with a 71, and one-over in his second round of play with a 73. Rosenmueller, like Churchman, birdied six times on the day, and did so twice on the par-four sixth hole. Snyman birdied on three occasions, including a pair on the par-5 14th hole, and parred a total of 15 times in his first round performance. The sophomore duo are tied for 28th individually.

Just behind Rosenmueller and Snyman is fellow sophomore Devin Jackson, who is one-over-par through the first two rounds. He is tied for 39th individually after rebounding from a three-over-par first round with a two-under 70 in round number two. Jackson was a bit more up and down, registering a team-high nine birdies on the day, posting birdies in both rounds on both the par-five third hole, as well as the 14th.

North Texas is back in action on Tuesday morning, teeing off in round three at 7:45 a.m. CT, as the Mean Green look to continue to climb the leaderboard in the final round Tuesday. Follow along live here, courtesy of GolfStat.
