Men’s golf in 12th after 36 holes at the AutoTrader.com Collegiate Classic
Jamey Salmon carded a one-under par 71 in the opening round and is tied for 11th after 36 holes in the inaugural AutoTrader.com Collegiate Classic.
Salmon’s solid play led the Dolphins, who struggled as a team, posting rounds of 310 and 302 to sit in 12th place. 10th ranked UNF leads the event at one-under par, 575, while ECU’s Harold Varner and Chattanooga’s Stephan Jaeger lead the individual competition at four-under par.
“We made a lot of mistakes today and didn’t take advantage of our opportunities on the putting green,” said JU head coach Mike Blackburn.
Salmon opened the tournament with a bogey by answered with three birdies offset by one other bogey in the round of 71. His afternoon round started with a bogey, but only two birdies, were able to show up on the scorecard as he posted a two-over par, 74.
Nick Torrance rebounded from playing the first six holes six-over par by playing the final 30 holes at even-par to sit in a tie for 29th at six-over par.
