Wildcats Tied for Fourth at Pacific Invite
“We had a pretty good day,” said head coach Tim Norris. “The golf course is playing quite a bit different than last year. The hole locations were really close to the edges of the greens. The guys did a good job of staying patient, we threw in a couple of birdies there at the end and with 36 holes left to play we are in good shape.”

“Robert (Streb) had kind of a rough go on holes two and three, which were his 11th and 12th holes since he started on hole 10 today. He had bogeys after missing short putts on both of those. He just has a knack for rebounding with three birdies in a row. He finished with a great up and down on the last hole and is just a gritty competitor. He has been a gritty competitor since he got to K-State. He is a guy that you never count him out and this is a great quality in team golf.”
Junior Joe Ida carded a 2-over par 73 and now sits in 26th place heading into the second round. Wildcat golfer Ross Geubelle carded a 3-over par 74 and sits in a tie for 40th place after the first round.
The Wildcats look to rally back from six shots back on Tuesday with an 8:30 a.m. (PT) shotgun start at the Pacific Invitational. Final results will be posted on www.kstatesports.com as soon as they are made available. Live statistics will also be available by logging on to www.golfstat.com.
