ZIONSVILLE, Ind. - The Miami University men's golf team is in 10th place after two rounds of the Wolf Run Intercollegiate. The RedHawks have a two-round team score of 28-over par. Ohio State leads the event at two-under par.
"Today definitely had its share of ups and downs," commented head coach Zac Zedrick. "It was disappointing to start so poorly and immediately get behind the eight-ball. Wolf Run is the type of place where you can't start taking chances if you get over par early and that's basically what happened in the morning. We lacked a little bit of discipline and it showed."
Miami showed significant improvement from round one to round two. After shooting a team score of 20-over par 304 in the morning, the Red and White came back with a team score of eight-over par 292 in the afternoon.
"I'm really proud of the way we bounced back in the afternoon," said Zedrick. "We managed to get ourselves back in the moment and play some golf that is much closer to our potential. Although we're not as far up as we could be in relation to the field, the way we competed in the afternoon tells me we're on the right track."
Ben Peacock and Scott Cahill were the top individual golfers for Miami on Saturday. Peacock had rounds of 75 and 73, while Cahill shot two rounds of 74 on the par-71 course. Both of them are tied for 33rd at six-over par.
Austin Kelly is two shots behind Peacock and Cahill at eight-over par. He had the best round of any RedHawk on Saturday, shooting an even-par 71 in the afternoon. Mark MacDonald is 52nd at nine-over par, while Brett Tomfohrde is tied for 62nd at 12-over par.
The Wolf Run Intercollegiate concludes with one final round of 18 holes on Sunday.
