Dawgs Tied for Third Heading into Final Round of The Goodwin
STANFORD, Calif. – The University of Washington men's golf team continued its solid play during round two of the annual 28-field, prestigious The Goodwin event, as it is tied for third with its 7-over 567 (281-286). The Dawgs were led by senior Henry Lee who continues to lead the Dawgs as he is tied for 11th at 2-under 138.
"Overall, we kind of leaked a little oil today which was kind of a disappointment but again, the guys did a really good job of managing themselves and the conditions," said head coach Alan Murray. "We've done well over these two rounds and are pretty hopeful that we can improve heading into the final round. Henry had another nice day and Taehoon really did well. We challenged him after the first nine and he dug deep and had that 1-under on the back nine. This is a tricky course. Every shot is a challenge but our guys have done a really good job so far."
Lee had another solid round for the Huskies posting an even-par 70 to move into a tie for 11th. He had a strong front nine going 2-under thanks to three birdies and just one error. Following two pars and a trio of blemishes with one birdie on the back nine, Lee finished with his 70 scorecard. He has now posted a team-high 11 birdies over the two rounds so far.
Freshman Teddy Lin, who entered the day tied for 20th, stayed steady as he finished his second 18 in a tie for 19th. Lin opened by getting to two-over through the first five holes but during the next eight holes he got back to even par. He paired a bogey followed by a birdie on both 14-15 and 17-18 to end the day at even-par 70.
Senior Jan Schneider posted a 2-over 72 in his second round for an overall score of 3-over 143, which places him tied for 36th. Despite having a higher score in his second round, freshman Taehoon Song showcased his resiliency as he made the turn at 5-over but went 1-under on the back nine with eight pars and one birdie. He is tied for 57th at 6-over 146. Senior Noah Woolsey closed out the day for the Dawgs with a 5-over 75 to place tied for 79th at 8-over 148.
Washington wraps up its second event of three in nine days on Saturday, teeing off in the afternoon down at the Stanford Golf Course.
