“I’m impressed with the response today from the team. We finished strong and posted the low round of the day, moving up seven spots.

Ian’s a grinder but today he was locked in. He started well and made a few clutch par saves in the middle of his round to keep the momentum. He birdied two out of his last four holes to close out a great round. I’m happy for him and proud of his performance.”

  • Iowa’s team par five average of 4.80 (-12) tied for fifth in the field.
