Sunday March 27, 2011McCumber Leads Florida Men's Golf After Round One of Hootie @ Bulls Bay

Gainesville, Fla.

Sophomore Tyler McCumber (Ponte Vedra, Fla.) led the Florida Men’s Golf team after shooting a 70 and earning a top-10 finish on the first day of the Hootie @ Bulls Bay Invitational in Awendaw, S.C. on Sunday.

 

McCumber made four birdies and a bogey before making a double bogey on the 18th hole to finish in a tie for 10th place.

 

“Tyler is a big key for our team,” said head coach Buddy Alexander. “When he plays well, we play well. He played a beautiful round today.”

 

As a team, the Gators shot a 288 and tied for seventh place with N.C. State and Duke.

 

Sophomore Phillip Choi (Orlando, Fla.) made three birdies, a bogey and a double bogey to stay on par for the day and finish round one in a tie for 19th place.

 

Senior Bank Vongvanij (Bradenton, Fla.) made one birdie and two bogeys to shoot one-over par and finish in a tie for 34th.

 

Sophomore Tommy Mou (Bradenton, Fla.) and junior Michael Furci (Sayville, N.Y.) shot a 75 and 77, respectively.

 

“We played alright, but conditions got a little tougher as the day went on and we didn’t putt particularly well,” said Alexander. “It can be fixed and we’ll be a little better tomorrow. We are certainly not out of this tournament.”

 

The Gators will return to the course for round two on Monday, March 28. Check back to www.GatorZone.com for updated news and results.
