Cougars playing to a tee
The Cougars got back on the links Monday at the J.L. Lewis Intercollegiate in New Braunfels, Texas, hoping to better their seventh place finish last week at the Rice Intercollegiate.
The two-day tourney featured 36 holes, with 18 being played today on the par-71, 6,928-yard course at The Bandit Golf Club.
The Cougars who competed are senior Jackie Lindsey, juniors Matt Eschenburg and Clark Mitzner and freshmen Joseph Reynolds and Jordan Rumora.
Lindsey led the team with a first round score of 1-over 72. He was followed closely by Mitzner, with a 2-over 73. The team was rounded out by Eschenburg’s 76, Reynolds’ 77 and Rumora’s 79, which included three double bogeys and four birdies.
The Mean Green of North Texas led after the first round with a team score of 290, followed by Houston at 298. Second-round scores were not available at press-time.
This is the third consecutive tournament the Cougars have played in Texas to start off the spring season.
