Mike Randleman

After one round at the Bridgestone Golf Collegiate, the ISU men’s golf team is in 13th place out of 14 teams.

The two-day tournament, set to be a 54-hole event, was shortened to 36 holes after a 2-hour frost delay suspended the start of play.

Through 18 holes on Saturday, the Cyclones posted a team total of 17–over-par for a score of 305, 17 shots off the lead.

The team was led by Ruben Sondjaja, who posted a two-over-par score of 74, good for a tie for 23rd place, six shots off the lead.

Sam Daley, Scott Fernandez and Collin Foster also posted qualifying scores of 76, 77 and 78, respectively.

Blake Waller posted a round of 80, but only the top four individual scores per team are considered for overall scoring.

Nick Voke, who had started in all four previous tournaments is out for the Cyclones. He is currently competing in the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship.

North Carolina is in first place after posting an even-par total of 288.

Play will conclude Sunday morning at the Grandover Resort East Course in Greensboro, N.C.
