Men's CUSA Golf Tournament

Recommended Posts

Back nine was much better. A number of birdies. tied for 6th at +4, 11 shots behind current leader FAU 6 behind 4th placed USM.

The format is helping the teams with a bad start, as essentially you only have to get into the top 4 after round 3 to have a shot. Unlike the women, for the men there will be semifinals and finals in match play format on thursday.

NT is one of 5 dark horse teams with similar rankings between 70 and 85. Charlotte is the clearly best ranked team (28th) and UAB second best rated (54th), but neither had a great start either.

If they want to make an NCAA regional, then NT likely needs to win the tournament.

NT is alsmost done. The back nine was again a lot betteer than the front nine. It is easier than the front, but NTs difference is really particularly eye catching.

The problem was inconsistency, which has haunted this team for most of the season. On a good day they can beat pretty much anybody in this field, but they rarely put several good days together.

Tucker Allen is currently tied for worst individual score in the field for the day (+7) and Forslund had a horror start and ended up not much better (+6). The three others did respectable to actually pretty good, although one might have hoped for more from Marzilio, given his win last year.

The team currently back up to 9th, 8 shots behind Rice in fourth, with all other teams having more holes left to go than NT. That means the deficitwill likely be getting a bit smaller. It will be really tough tomorrow but not impossible. The course seems not terribly selective so even 5 or 6 shots is quite a bit. They have to start performing better on that front nine.

+3 through our first 9 holes, the back nine, on today's round.  I noticed that Tucker Allen was dropped after he blew up yesterday.  We have to make up eight strokes, if all things stay the same, to move in to fourth place and qualify for the match play semi-finals.  Going to be a tough road to hoe.

And Wilcox, after being +5 on his opening nine, proceeds to start his back nine with a bogey.

Finished 8th. Marzilio improved into to a tie for 13th at least, where Prone already was.

Marzillio, Prone and Allen are sophomores, Forslund, Bergson and Wilcox are seniors.

So the top of the lineup will stay -which is good- but NT needs to find more consistency and depth again to make it back into regionals next season.
