Snyman In Second Place, One Shot Off The Lead

Feb. 8, 2016

SAN ANTONIO – It was a breezy day to open the spring season for the North Texas men’s golf team, but that didn’t stop freshman Ian Snyman from shooting a 1-under par 141 and sitting alone in second place, one stroke off the lead, after two rounds of play at the UTSA/Oak Hills Invitational.

Snyman, playing as an individual for the Mean Green, shot an even-par score of 71 in the first round and one was of only six players to shoot under par in the second round as he posted a 1-under 70.

Snyman had a rare eagle in the second round on the par-5 10th hole to put him into red figures. The freshman heads into the final round just one shot off the lead, held by Freddy Andersen of Baylor.

North Texas as a team struggled in the first round but bounced back nicely in the second round as they sit in sixth place after 36 holes. The Mean Green shot a first-round of 302, but cut 10 shots off that total in the second round to climb the leaderboard. NT is only eight shots behind third-place Louisiana Tech. No. 11 Oklahoma and No. 44 Baylor are tied for the lead after two rounds.

Sophomore Michael Cotton is tied for 16th place after two rounds at 4-over par. Cotton had four birdies in his second round to shoot a 71. Cory Churchman and Alejandro Villasana are tied for 26th place after shoot identical scores of 75 in the first round and 74 in the second round.


 

 

Freshman Thomas Rosenmueller is tied for 34th place at 8-over par while Colin Pearson is in 47th place after posting scores of 77 and 75. The final round begins Tuesday morning and live scoring can be found at www.golfstat.com.
