IOWA CITY, Iowa - With the final round remaining in the Great River Entertainment Hawkeye Invitational, the Washington State men's golf team sits in sixth place at 20-over.
Blake Snyder led the way for the Cougar men on the first day of the tournament. Snyder carded a 73 (+1) in the first round, and matched it with another 73 in the second to finish the day at 2-over and tied for tenth place. Cougar senior Hank Frame was also 1-over after the first 18 holes, and shot a 75 in the second round to conclude day one tied for 17th place (4-over).
"Blake played well today, he did a really good job," Cougar Head Coach Garrett Clegg said. "He had a couple rough holes but overall he had a really good day."
Washington State had team marks of 296 and 300 in the first and second rounds, respectively. The Cougar men trail Charlotte by just four strokes with the final 18-hole round remaining, and are 20-strokes back to tournament leader Kansas (even par).
"We dug ourselves in a hole in the afternoon round, but we will just have to come out here and play good golf tomorrow," Clegg said.
Sunday's final round will begin with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Central/7 a.m. Pacific. Live results will be available at golfstat.com, and will be posted at wsucougars.com at the conclusion of the competition.
