Woosley Moves Into Top 20 on Day Two of Arizona Intercollegiate
TUCSON, Ariz. – Senior Noah Woolsey made a big climb up the leaderboard on day two of the Arizona Intercollegiate as he leads the Huskies sitting tied for 17th. The Dawgs overall are tied for 13th at 30-over 598 (307-291) with every Husky improving on their day one score during Tuesday's round. Play was pushed back to an afternoon shotgun start due to another day of difficult weather which included morning snow in the Tucson area.
"It was a little easier out there today, the wind wasn't nearly as bad compared to yesterday and even with the start pushed back because of snow, when we got going, the conditions were better, which helped our guys all have better rounds today," said head coach Alan Murray. "Noah played a great round, recorded our first under-par round of the year and he just had a very solid day on the course. Our guys just need rounds under their belt, as frustrating as this tournament has been, it's good for the guys to have scorecards in their hands again and I know they'll just keep getting better."
Woolsey started his day on a hot streak posting three-straight birdies to get to 3-under right off the bat. Despite a double-bogey on the fourth hole, he responded with four pars and another birdie to finish his front nine at 2-under. The senior rattled off six-straight pars to open the back nine and then added two more birdies before finishing his round with a bogey. He turned in a 3-under 68 scorecard to tie for 17th (3-over 145), moving up 21 places on the leaderboard and improving on his round one score by nine strokes.
Senior Jan Schneider sits tied for 41st after his round of 3-over 74 also making an improvement on his day one score. Schneider started the day with four-straight solid holes making par before bogeying the par-4 fifth. Over the next nine holes, the senior made par on eight while adding one birdie to get back to even par. He finished the round with three bogeys over his last four holes but closed with a par to sit at 7-over 149 (75-74).
Sitting two strokes behind Schneider is senior Henry Lee with his 9-over 151 (76-75) which places him tied for 51st, while sophomore Petr Hruby is tied for 65th at 11-over 153 (79-74). Hruby improved his day one score by five strokes. Rounding out the UW lineup was freshman Teddy Lin who is tied for 89th with a 16-over 158 (82-76). Competing as an individual, freshman Taehoon Song is currently tied for 68th at 12-over 154 (80-74).
