McGlasson played 14 holes of the round on Monday, and stood at 6-under par when play was suspended due to darkness. Of the four holes he had remaining (8 through 11), three are generally considered the toughest on the course. But McGlasson opened with two pars, and then birdied the toughest, 10 and 11, both playing to about a stroke over par on average for the meet.
"My mindset was the same as it was (Monday), just taking one shot at a time, getting it on the fairway and then on the right part of the green so I could score," McGlasson said. "On the par-5 (No. 11), I hit a solid drive, and I was 260 from the pin and I decided I wanted to go for the 62. I hit a perfect 3-wood just over the pin. I was really excited, and I don‚t think I've been that nervous over a putt for a long time, and I had the shakes. I left it two feet short, so I'll hear about that for a while."
But McGlasson will also hear about his record-setting round. His play led the Buffs, who scored 886, 46 shots off winner New Mexico.
