Afternoon Round No Delight for Tech Golfers

April 3, 2006

AUSTIN, Texas –

After posting one of the best scores in the morning round, Georgia Tech’s golf team soared to one of the highest in the afternoon and stands in 11th place among 18 teams after 36 holes at the Morris Williams Intercollegiate in Austin, Texas.

Freshman Cameron Tringale was the bright spot for the fourth-ranked Yellow Jackets Monday, posting a two-under-par 70 in each round, and is tied for third place individually.

Five teams stood within three shots of the lead after the morning round at the 6,906-yar, par 72 Austin Country Club. The Yellow Jackets had posted a two-under-par score of 286 in the morning round, good for third place just three shots behind Oklahoma State (283). Castro and Tringale led the way with a 69 and 70, respectively.

But while six teams shot subpar scored in the afternoon, Tech went 12-over-par for a team score of 300. Tech’s Roberto Castro, the All-American from Alpharetta, Ga., who played the front nine in even-par in the afternoon, ran into trouble on the back nine. His scorecard included a double-bogey and five bogeys on the inward nine for a 79 which counted for the Jackets.

Tringale held steady in the afternoon, and is three shots back of Brigham Young’s Oscar Alvarez, who posted scores of 69 and 68 for a 36-hole total of 137, five under par. SMU’s Brandon DeStafano, who shot seven-under-par 65 in the morning, is one shot back in second place with a 36-hole total of 138, six under par.

Junior Kevin Larsen posted a 74 for the Jackets in the afternoon after carding a 73 in the morning. He is tied for 38th place at 147. Castro is tied for 47th at 148.

Oklahoma State (10-under-par 566 over two rounds) matched its morning score with a five-under-par 283 in the afternoon and stood six shots ahead of Texas Tech (4-under-par). Tyler Leon and Jonathan Moore paced the Cowboys with 36-hole scores of 141 (-3) and are tied for fifth place. Oklahoma (-3) is in third place team-wise and host Texas (-2) is in fourth. BYU holds fifth place at 1-under-par.

The final 36 holes will be played Tuesday. Live scoring is available online at Golfstat.com.
