Reeves's Low Round Moves Wildcats Up
CLE ELUM, Wash. – On a day of tumultuous weather that saw high winds, rain, sunshine and sometimes all three at once, No. 20 Arizona Men's Golf finished the second round of the NCAA Cle Elum Regional with 6-over score for the day. The Wildcats moved up two spots on the leaderboards to tenth place at 13-over par for the tournament heading into Wednesday's third and final round.
"We had runs of four holes on both sides of the turn where we found quality scores," said head coach Jim Anderson. "Unfortunately, we could not sustain that momentum throughout the front or back nine. Brad was lights out for us today and played a great, steady round amid the weather conditions. We have one final round here in Cle Elum left, and our mindset is to be aggressive in our scoring opportunities and Bear Down."
Reeves shot a 3-under round of 68 on Tuesday, which shaved six strokes off his opening round. He was one of only three players in the field to record one bogey or fewer in the second round. The senior sits at even par for the tournament and in a tie for 17th.
Behind Reeves in scoring on Tuesday was yesterday's leader David Laskin who shot a 2-over second round. Laskin's round was highlighted by his eagle putt on the par-5, seventh hole that he sank from seven feet away.
Arizona enters Wednesday's final round with an uphill climb to reach a top-five finish to advance to the NCAA Championships. The Cats sit 13 strokes behind Utah and Pepperdine who finished Tuesday tied for fifth.
The Wildcats will tee off on Wednesday morning at 9:15 a.m. (MST) on the 10th hole alongside Long Beach State and Mississippi State.
