AKRON, Ohio – The Miami University men’s golf team is in 10th place after two rounds at the Firestone Invitational Monday. The RedHawks are currently at 22-over par after shooting a 300 in round one and a 298 in round two. The leading team of the tournament after rounds one and two is Washington State at four-over par.
"Today was an interesting day, very up and down at times,” said head coach Zac Zedrick. “I was really pleased with a stretch of play for about the first twelve holes of the second round where we got ourselves back into the tournament.”
Junior Scott Cahill leads the RedHawks after two rounds. Currently tied for 20th place after shooting 73 in round one and 75 in round two, Cahill is four-over par going into Tuesday. Close behind is senior Austin Kelly who is tied for 28th place. Kelly shot rounds of 77 and 72, putting him at five-over par.
Sophomore Jack Sparling is next on the leader board after shooting 77 in round one and 74 in round two. Tied for 42nd, Sparling is at seven-over par. Following him is senior Mark MacDonald, who is tied for 54th at nine-over par and junior Luke Shaughnessy who is seated 79th at 14-over par.
“Unfortunately, we didn't finish up as well as we would have liked and with second and tenth place being separated by ten shots, you can drop pretty quickly, said Zedrick. “There was a lot to be encouraged about, though, and I'm confident we'll learn from today and finish up well tomorrow."
The Firestone Invitational concludes with its final round on Tuesday.
