Campbell had the top three scorers on the day with Jesper Svensson’s 65 leading the way in the 92-golfer field that features 18 teams.”Today was a very challenging day with strong winds gusting up to 40 mph,” said Drake head coach Matt Lewis. “The first 9 holes were tough with the wind-exposed holes and we got off to a slow start. We did settle in on the back 9 and started to play well. Unfortunately we struggled on our final few holes giving several strokes away. We are in fine position and with ideal conditions forecasted we know we will have an opportunity to put up a low number. Tommi was solid all day and did a great job managing the wind.”The second round of competition begins Monday, Oct. 22, at 7:30 a.m. with the Bulldogs teeing off on the front side of the course.center_img Print Friendly Version Story Linkslast_img read more
