Mean Green Tied For Fourth After Day One In Zionsville
North Texas Is Deadlocked With Two Other Schools After 18 Holesa
Day One Results
ZIONSVILLE, Indiana - The North Texas Mean Green teed off for the first time in the 2016-17 season on Saturday at the Wolf Run Intercollegiate at Wolf Run Golf Club in Zionsville, Indiana. Though weather interfered and delayed the start by several hours, forcing event organizers to change the tournament from a 54-hole event to a 36-hole competition, the Mean Green season eventually got underway. Senior Cory Churchman is currently tied for second individually with three other golfers at -2 after shooting a 69 at his first outing of 2016-17.
Sophomore Ian Snyman is just outside of the top 10, in a tie for 11th individually at even par, following his 71 on Saturday. Churchman birdied on five separate occasions, while Snyman birdied three times. The South African's day seemed destined for an under-par finish, but a double bogey on 14 hurt those chances.
Rounding out the day for the Mean Green, sophomore Thomas Rosenmueller finished tied for 25th at +3, while senior Andrew Hudson (+6) and junior Ross Martens (+12) had some difficulties at times at Wolf Run.
North Texas heads into the final day behind tournament leaders Purdue (-7), who was paced by Bryan Carlson's -3 afternoon, as well as Illinois and Kentucky, who are both +4, and are tied with Central Florida and hosts, Indiana at +7.
Action gets underway tomorrow, Sunday, at 7:30 a.m. CT and all of the action can be followed on Golfstat.
