Men’s Golf in 13th After First Day of Isleworth Collegiate
WINDERMERE, Fla. – Javier Barcos owns his team's top score at 3-over and the University of Utah men's golf team is 19-over at the end of the one round of play at the Isleworth Collegiate, which began with 18 holes on Sunday at the Isleworth Country Club.
"It was a long day for us," said coach Garrett Clegg. "Hopefully we can battle back from today with a strong round tomorrow."
Barcos' day, which began on the back nine, got off to a difficult start, as he recorded two early bogeys, but the junior regained his footing and was just 1-over through his final 15 holes. Included in that stretch was a birdie on the 17th and a streak of six consecutive pars to wrap up his day. Barcos will head into the second round tied for 37th.
Just one stroke behind Barcos is Tanner Telford in a tie for 44th. Telford started his day by shooting 1-over on the back nine, then he rebounded from a rough start to the front nine by knocking in a pair of birdies over his final five holes, finishing at 4-over.
Braxton Watts entered the clubhouse at 5-over and sharing 50th, while Martín León, who tied for the team lead with 13 pars, is 7-over and even with four competitors in 62nd. Hunter Howe is tied for 75th and Utah's team score has them in 13th.
The second round of the Isleworth Collegiate will take place on Monday.
