Oct. 19, 2009
Memphis, Tenn. - Led by junior Karsten Clements' opening round 74, the University of Louisville's men's golf team is tied for seventh place at the 2009 Memphis Intercollegiate. Second round play was suspended due to darkness. Players will finish their rounds tomorrow morning at 8 a.m., and a shotgun start will follow at 9 a.m. to play the third and final round.
Clements' 74 leaves him in a tie for fourth through one round and just three shots behind Marc-Ettienne Bussieres of South Alabama, who shot 71.
Louisville (312) is in seventh place with two rounds remaining. South Alabama (296) leads the tournament and currently holds a five stroke lead over Xavier (301) and Southern Miss (301).
Colonial Country Club's famed South Course showed its teeth Monday, yielding an average tournament score of only 78.46. Players were also forced to deal with chilly morning temperatures that gave way to a windy afternoon with wind gusts reaching nearly 30 mph.
The Cardinals will finish up round two tomorrow morning before teeing off in the third and final round of the Memphis Intercollegiate. Follow all the action live at www.golfstat.com.
