After the first of three rounds at the Wyoming Desert Intercollegiate, the ISU men’s golf team finds itself in the middle of the pack.

With a team score of three-over-par for a total of 291, the Cyclones find themselves in a tie for 11th place out of 23 teams and 19 shots behind the leader, Colorado.

On Friday, Iowa State was led by junior Scott Fernandez and his one-under-par round of 71, good for a tie for 23rd place individually. That performance places him five shots behind leader Yannik Paul of Colorado.

Junior Sam Daley and freshman Ruben Sondjaja posted rounds of 72 to stand in a tie for 33rd place.

Senior Duncan Croudis and Nick Voke rounded out the starting lineup for Iowa State, both posting rounds of 76, good for a tie for 91st place.

Redshirt junior Blake Waller also competed as an individual, posting a round of 78 to stand in a tie for 106th place.

The second round will take place Saturday, with the third and final round Sunday at the Classic Club course in Palm Desert, Calif.
