HEAR FROM COACH TYLER STITH
“We were determined today and played much better golf. We turned at 6-under par and had a great chance to catch a few more teams but we didn’t execute. We have to figure that piece out as a team. Having the belief and confidence to close out rounds. I’m very proud of Ian Meyer. He’s been working hard at home and took advantage of his opportunity this week. He showed a lot of grit and made some great par saves down the stretch.”
•Josh Lundmark’s par three average of 2.91 (-1) tied for third in the field; Meyer’s par three average of 3.00 (E) tied for sixth.
