GUADALAJARA, Mexico - The North Texas men’s golf team is in seventh place after the first day of action at the GADO North Texas Classic. The Mean Green concluded Sunday’s play with a team score of 611, 19-shots behind Indiana which is leading after the first two rounds with a team score of 592.
"All of the team’s really struggled this morning with the wind and just getting familiar with the course," North Texas head coach Jim Bob Jackson said. "We played much better in the afternoon, but so did everyone else. If we can get all four guys to shoot around par tomorrow we should be in the mix."
Junior Anthony Broussard led the Mean Green, shooting a 76 in the opening round and a 1-under par 71 in his second round. Broussard’s two-round score of 147 is six shots behind Jorge Campillo of Indiana who leads all individuals with a two-round score of 141.
Jordan Irwin of Houston (145) and Chas Narramore of Middle Tennessee (146) are in second and third place respectively after the first day. Broussard is tied for fourth place heading into the final round.
Junior Austin Welch is tied for 20th after the first day, shooting a 152 in his first two rounds. Welch came back from a disappointing first-round 81 and shot a 1-under par 71 on his final 18 holes of the day.
Freshman Dustin Thompson (156) and junior Raul Lemus (161) rounded out the top four scorers for the Mean Green.
The 10-team tournament is being played at El Palomar Country Club in Guadalajara. The par-72 course is 6,900 yards. The tournament will conclude Monday with a final round beginning at 7:30 a.m. CST.
