LAKE WORTH, Fla. - The Miami University men's golf team is in 11th place after the second round of the FAU Spring Break Classic on Saturday. The RedHawks shot a team score of five-over par 289, a seven-shot improvement over their first round score. They are currently at 17-over par, and only seven shots out of seventh place. Florida State leads the event at 12-under par.
"We played better as a team today, but we simply didn't finish," said head coach Zac Zedrick. "There were too many shots given away the last four or five holes and it's a shame because we had a chance to move up the leaderboard today."
Ben Peacock had the top round of the day for Miami. His one-under par 70 puts him at one-over par after two rounds. He is currently tied for 26th place. Brett Tomfohrde remains the RedHawks overall individual leader. He shot a 72 on Saturday and is currently tied for 14th place at one-under par.
Sophomore Austin Kelly also shot a 72 for his second round; he is tied for 46th overall at six-over par. Other RedHawks include Mark MacDonald, who is tied for 72nd at 11-over par and Luke Shaughnessy, who is tied for 82nd at 15-over par.
"I'm excited for tomorrow," said Zedrick. "The boys want to end the trip on a good note. If we can just finish up a little better, we'll be alright."
Miami completes play at the FAU Spring Break Classic with one final round of 18 holes on Sunday.
