Nevada 22nd Heading into Final Round of the Cowboy Classic
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – The Nevada men’s golf team is in 22nd heading into the final round of the Cowboy Classic, hosted by Wyoming.
Heavy wind all day caused for a slow day and high scores for everyone as Nevada finished the first round with a 41-over 321. Nevada sits five shots behind Colorado State. The second round of the day was canceled because of the wind, and the tournament has been shortened from 54-holes to 36. The second and final round will take place on Tuesday.
Freshman Kit Carson leads the Wolf Pack after the first round and is tied for 54th after shooting a eight-over 78. Juniors Ryan Mulvany and Brian Knoll are tied for 79th after shooting a 10-over 80. Sophomores Andrew Cornella and Taylor Knoll are both tied for 104th.
“The Winds were extreme today,” said head coach Jacob Wilner. “We did not do a good job of handling the adverse conditions. We are going to continue to work on our weaknesses and look forward.”
Wichita State is leading the tournament after shooting a 14-over 294 in the final round. Kansas State’s Curtis Yonke, UC Santa Barbara’s Glen Scher, and Wichita State’s Louis Cohen Boyer are all tied for first place in the individual race after shooing an even-70.
The final round will start Tuesday.
