Choo Leads UW In Round One at Isleworth
Oct. 25, 2009
WINDERMERE, Fla. - The third-ranked Husky men's golf team struggled in the first round of the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational, shooting a combined 20-over-par 308. Washington is tied for 12th out of 15 teams competing at Isleworth Country Club outside of Orlando.
Stanford got three rounds of under-par golf, including a 4-under 68 from co-leader Steve Ziegler, to lead after the first round at 289.
The Huskies, who teed off from the 10th hole, were led by junior Tze Huang Choo. Choo is tied for 23rd after he shot a 3-over-par 75, which included only one birdie and four bogeys.
All-Americans Nick Taylor and Richard Lee each finished the day at 5-over 77 and are tied for 33rd. Taylor had an especially roller-coaster round, as he had five birdies on the day - two more than the rest of the team combined. But, along with the birdies, Taylor uncharacteristically counted three double-bogeys and four bogeys.
Lee was 1-over after his first nine, but ballooned to 5-over after counting four bogeys on the back.
The Huskies will tee off for round two starting at 9:25 ET on the 10th tee.
