ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Cameron University men’s golf carded a 618 two round score on Monday, during the first day of play at the Western New Mexico Fall Intercollegiate.
Cameron shot a 310 during the first 18 holes of play and improved two strokes to record a 308 in the second round. They are 29 strokes back of the tournament leader WNMU, who carded a 294 in the first round and a 295 in the second.
Niels Sorensen leads CU through day one at the intercollegiate, shooting a 75 in round one and a 77 in the second, which has him tied for 31st individually.
Kevin Farmer is three strokes back of Sorensen, as his 78 and 77 has him just outside of the top-50 and tied with teammate Mason LeGrange, whose 76 second round score helped drop his total score after a round one 79. Dario Gabriel is just two strokes back of Farmer and Legrange with a 159, while Devin Whipple rounds out the Aggie lineup with a 165 through 36 holes.
Gabriel leads the Black and Gold with six birdies, while LeGrange recorded five birdies on Monday. Farmer and Sorensen lead CU with 23 and 22 pars recorded respectively.
