Tigers Remain In 7th At Regional

Auburn remains in seventh place at the NCAA Lubbock Regional, one shot out of fifth place.

Lubbock Tex.--A round that started out with a lot of promise on Friday ended in disappointment for the Auburn men’s golf team as +1 round of 285 has the Tigers one shot out of fifth place with one day left in the NCAA Lubbock Regional. At one point five-under par for the round through 10 holes, Auburn played the final eight holes in six-over par to remain in seventh place following round two.

“We are in good shape,” said Auburn head coach Nick Clinard. “We had it to 9-under at one time, and we turned to the easier side. There are a couple of tough holes on the front, No. 8 which was our 17th hole of the day, was a difficult hole, and we didn’t play No. 9 well. “We just didn’t finish," he added. "We played the last four holes about 5-over as a team. Tomorrow, the wind is supposed to blow. It is fun. I wish I could get out there and play. We will be ready, and I’m looking forward to it.”

Freshman Ben Schlottman’s round of 70 led the way for the Tigers as the only round under par on the day for the team. Daniel Stringfellow and Ryan Benton each fired rounds of 71, but the two were a combined +5 in the final four holes, missing an opportunity to go low on Friday. Auburn’s top two golfers entering the weekend, Matt Gilchrest continued his struggles with a 76 while Michael Johnson’s 73 was the final counting round for the Tigers.
