Lile leads 2000 Taylor Made Red River Classic

DALLAS, Texas – The University of Arkansas’ Craig Lile leads the Red River Classic at the Dallas Athletic Club after two rounds on Monday but could not pull his team out of last place as the Hogs struggled and finished the day at 6-over par. The Razorbacks will look to move up in the tournament standings on Tuesday when the final eighteen holes are played.
Lile, coming off of a win almost a month ago at the Cleveland Golf Intercollegiate in Kiawah Island, S.C., shot an opening round 66 (6- under par) and a second round 68 (4-under par) to grab a two stroke lead and will start Tuesday’s round at 10-under.
Sophomore Beau Galyean, playing in his first tournament of the season, shot an opening round 71 followed by a 73 to finish the day at even par and in 33rd place.
Rounding out the line-up for the Hogs is redshirt freshman Adam Wing at 150 and freshman Seth Murphy at 157. Wing sits in 68th place after two rounds of 75 (6-over par), and Murphy is in 81st after a 78 and a 79 (13-over par). Sophomore Drew Higginbothom finished with an 83 and a 76 (14-over par) and sits in 82nd place.
