FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arizona Men's Golf used a five-stroke improvement from its opening round to shoot 2-under on Tuesday at the Blessings Collegiate Invitational. Chase Sienkiewicz carded his second consecutive sub-70 round with a 68 on Tuesday to reach 7-under par and second place for the tournament. Junior Aidric Chan also shaved a handful of strokes off his Monday performance with a 69 on Tuesday as he sits in a tie for 21st at 2-over entering the tournament's final round.
"Our improved play carried over from yesterday, and I was very happy to see lower scores throughout our lineup today," said head coach Jim Anderson. "Chase and Aidric shot two of the lowest rounds on the day that set a great tone for our team. Our first two rounds have positioned us to continue to move up the team and individual leaderboards tomorrow."
