Austin Peay Sports Information
West Point, MS – Austin Peay State University men’s golf team is more than holding its own after Day 1 of the rain-delayed 2014 Old Waverly Collegiate Championship, being held at the Old Waverly Golf Club.After rain hindered the tourney start by more than 1 ½ hours, Monday morning, the Governors were tied for sixth following Round 1 after shooting a 3-over 291 and were in sixth by themselves at 4-over par with three holes to play before darkness ended Round 2.
The tourney will resume at 8:30am, Tuesday, on the par-72, 7,088-yard layout.
Ole Miss leads the tourney at 5-under, followed by South Alabama, which is at even par. First-round leader Cincinnati is 1-over followed by host Mississippi State and Florida at 2-over. Ten of the 15 teams entered are ranked in GolfStat’s Top 100.
“We had a great team performance in the first round, with three really good scores. We had to count a higher score (79) or we would have been right there. Through 15 we are 1-over in the second round. “
In the first round, seniors Anthony Bradley and Marco Iten led the way along with junior Tucker Wallace. Bradley shot a 2-under 70 while Iten and Waller were at 1-under. Trey Tarpley came in at 79 while Chris Baker shot an 80.
But the latter were playing solid in Round 2. Baker was at even par while Tarpley was 1-under.
“Trey just really had just one really bad hole in the first round but came back well this afternoon,” Kayden said. “Chris just got off to a terrible start—he was 8-over after six holes—but has played even par for the last 20 something holes. He really has pulled it back together.”
After a strong performance at Memphis last week, Wallace has continued his midseason surge, although he slipped to 3-over late in the second round. Bradley, after shooting 2-under in the first round, battled allergies in afternoon and slipped to 8-over with two holes to play.
“You know as a team you are playing a lot better when one of your best players isn’t going to count in a round and you still played a pretty solid round of golf,” Kayden said. “Hopefully, that is a good sign for the next couple of weeks.”
