Wildcats Battle Tough Conditions at Regionals
A steady drizzle came down during the morning on the par 71, 7,173-yard Sand Ridge Golf Club. The damp course made for tough conditions, yet again, for the 27-team field.
“The conditions weren’t good for the second day in a row,” head coach Tim Norris said. “The fairways and rough were damp, but the greens were in good condition. With that being said, we still need to play some good golf during the final round.”
Oklahoma State’s Zack Robinson leads individually after carding a 5-under par 66, giving him a 36-hole score of 71-66137 (-5). Robinson holds a one stroke lead over teammate Jonathan Moore. With Texas A&M’s Bronson Burgoon in third, the top three individuals all hail from the Big 12.
K-State freshman Robert Streb was a bright spot for the Wildcats during the rainy second round. The
“It was nice to see Robert have a nice round today,” Norris said. “Hopefully he can continue that during the third round.”
Ben Kern also rose in the individual standings after his second-round 77, to jump from 105th to 95th.
