HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - The Miami University men's golf team is tied for fifth place out of 16 teams after two rounds of the Marshall Invitational Monday. The RedHawks have a 36-hole team score of nine-over par. Virginia Tech leads the tournament with a combined team score of 20-under par.
Senior Brett Tomfohrde had the top performance for Miami on Monday. After shooting a two-over par 73 in the morning, he came back with a three-under par 68 in the afternoon. Overall Tomfohrde is tied for 12th at one-under par.
Junior Austin Kelly, senior Ben Peacock and sophomore Scott Cahill each had even-par rounds of 71 among their two rounds of action. Kelly and redshirt junior Mark MacDonald are tied for 42nd at five-over par. Peacock is tied for 55th overall at seven-over par, while Cahill is right behind in a tie for 59th at eight-over par.
"Overall we played ok today," said head coach Zac Zedrick. "I saw some good things as far as some of the boys bouncing back after tough stretches of holes and finishing good rounds. We did give some shots away at times that we couldn't afford to. I think we're poised to go out and do a little better job of staying in the moment all day tomorrow."
The Marshall Invitational concludes with one final round of 18 holes on Tuesday.
