SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- The University of Oklahoma men’s golf team stands 12th after 36 holes of the UTSA/Oak Hills Invitational on Monday at Oak Hills Country Club in San Antonio, Texas.
The Sooners carded an eight-stroke improvement during afternoon play with a 13-over-par 297 after tallying a tournament-opening 305 (+21) this morning at the par-71, 6,765-yard layout.
Highlighting OU’s play on day one was Riley Pumphrey (+6) in a share of 31st. After opening the 54-hole event with a 4-over-par 75, the sophomore golfer quickly returned to even par with an eagle and a hole-in-one within a span of four holes to start his second round. Pumphrey made par at No. 9 to open his second round before eagling the 513-yard, par-5 10th. Pumphrey holed out from 218 yards at the par-3 13th after pars at No. 11 and No. 12. The Georgetown, Texas, product couldn’t capitalize on his fast start, however, ending the round with six bogeys including a stretch of four straight from holes 15-18 for a 73 in round two.
Three shots behind Pumphrey is senior Ben Blundell (76-75) in a share of 42nd at +9. Fellow senior Tyler Rody (78-74) is a stroke back of Blundell at +10, while Liam Logan carded rounds of 79 and 75, heading to Tuesday’s final round in a share of 55th at +12.
Rounding out the Oklahoma team scoring is Ben Klaus (76-80) in a tie for 61st at +14. Klaus is making his OU debut after transferring from Vanderbilt last fall.
Southeastern Louisiana and defending champion Texas Tech share the overnight lead at +14, while three players head to Tuesday’s final round in a tie for medalist honors at even par.
