Saturday September 14, 2013No. 18 Florida Men's Golf Faces Another Tough Day in Round Two at Olympia Fields

Olympia Fields, Ill.

The No.18 Florida men’s golf team faced another tough day in round-two action at the eighth annual Olympia Fields/Fighting Illini Invitational this afternoon. As a team, the Gators improved six strokes from yesterday’s total score, shooting 22-over collectively to land in 15th place heading in to the final round.

Junior J.D. Tomlinson shot 6-over (76) today, leading the Gator roster while freshman Victor Tarnstrom improved four strokes from yesterday’s total by notching a four-over (74) on the day.

Buddy’s Bite: “Our score was better but the course was better too. I think we might have played a little better yesterday. We were off to a decent start today and thought we could get a little something going. I think it’s just too much golf course for us right now. We’ve been playing hard and I think you learn the most about yourself and your team when you play poorly. We’ve learned a lot about ourselves so far this weekend. Hopefully we can parlay that knowledge to use on the course tomorrow.”
