NSU golf slips to 7th in Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — The Northeastern State men’s golf team fell to seventh place after Monday’s second round of the 2013 Bash at the Beach, which is being held at the par-71 Surf Golf and Beach Club.

The 11-team tournament field includes nine NCAA Division I men’s golf programs and two NCAA Division II schools (NSU and Saint Leo).

The RiverHawks carded a team score of 299, and they are now 20-over par with a two-round total of 588 (289-299).

“We’re hitting the ball pretty well from tee to green, and we’re competing extremely well in a Division I tournament,” NSU coach Scott Varner said. “We are beating some and have a chance to overtake others if we have can a great final round tomorrow.”

Radford leads the way at 13-under 555 (281-274). Jacksonville is in second at 3-under 565 (284-281), Western Kentucky is third at 6-over, and High Point is fourth at 14-over, and James Madison rounds out the top five at 15-over.

Senior Kyle Fouts paces Northeastern State with a two-day total of even-par 142 (68-74). Junior Zach Tucker made the biggest move of the day for the RiverHawks, jumping 10 spots to sit in a tie for 47th at 11-over 153 (79-74). He shot a 41 on the front nine and closed with a back-side 33.

Freshman Jackson Hess is alone in 34th at 6-over 148 (74-74). Senior Jacob Bartel (74-77) and sophomore Jonas Granel (73-78) are both tied for 41st at 9-over 151.

“The story for us so far is our struggles on the greens,” Varner said. “We aren’t used to these Bermuda greens and we’re having a hard time reading long putts, but I know we will continue to fight.”

The final round will be today.
