Arkansas Battles Weather in First Day of UTSA
BY ANDRES FOCIL
SAN ANTONIO, Texas. – The Razorback golf team was forced to end the second round early as they endured freezing temperatures and 25 mile per hour winds on the first day of the UTSA Invitational at the Oak Hills Country Club in San Antonio, Texas.
After 27 holes the Hogs found themselves with a score of 302 and just two shots behind the leader, Texas Tech.
“It was hard to get a feel of how we were doing, because the weather made it so difficult,” Arkansas head coach Mike Ketcham said. “The only thing we can do tomorrow to catch up with Texas Tech is to eliminate our mistakes to bogies. We had too many doubles and triples.”
Senior Drew Higginbothom was leading the team after the first round with a score of 74 and was one over par nine holes into the second round. Juniors Andrew Dahl and Adam Wing were right behind with 75. Dahl is three over par, while Wing is five over par half way through the second round.
Junior Seth Murphy is even as he shot a 78 in the first 18 holes. Freshman Paul Bradshaw had 82 in the first round and also finds himself at one over par after the abbreviated second round.
The tournament will be called after the last nine holes of the second round are completed on Tuesday morning. Play will also be dependent on the weather conditions tomorrow.
