NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. – Junior Brendon Lowrance has made the cut at the NCAA III Men’s Golf Championships at Keene Trace Golf Club, finishing with a two-day total of 148 (+4), placing him in a tie for 20th.
Lowrance birdied his first hole of the tournament, and completed round one with a one-over 73. He had three birdies in the first round.
In round two, Lowrance followed a pair of bogeys with a birdie and had eight pars on the back nine to card a three-over 75. He has made 25 pars through the first two rounds.
“Brendon played consistent all day. He missed one shot on the par-3 11th, misjudging the wind and flying into the long rough which led to a double-bogey,” Head Coach Jay Rees said. “He had to make five to 10 puts on the final six holes to make the cut, and he made them all.”
With windy conditions on day two, the scoring average on the Champions Course was 81. However, Lowrance was able to grind out a 75.
On the 18th hole, Lowrance made an impressive par save. Putting downhill, he sank a 12-foot putt cutting away from him right in the center of the cup.
“We rejoiced in happiness!” Rees exclaimed, after Lowrance sank the putt to secure a spot below the cut line.
Round three is scheduled for Thursday with the final round slated for Friday.
