April 26, 2014
TUCSON, Ariz. – The Nevada men’s golf team went from ninth to tied for fifth after the second round of the Mountain West Championship.
Nevada bounced back from a slow first round and fired a six-over 290 in the second and is tied for fifth with Colorado State heading into the final round.
Senior Ryan Mulvany shook off his bad first round and fired a three-under 68 in the second round and is tied for eighth. Mulvany’s 68 was the lowest score in the second round. Freshman Rhyne Jones also had a better second round with an even-par 71and is tied for 10th.
“Ryan and Rhyne both had great rounds today,” said head coach Jacob Wilner. “The course played very challenging today with 20 mph winds, and gusts up to 35 mph. Our guys did a great job making up ground on the field.”
The final 18-hole round will be played on Sunday at the Catalina Course at Omni Tucson National Resort.
