Post-Round Quotes

Head Coach Gerrod Chadwell

On some of the challenges of the course and how the team played…

“The golf course plays tougher in the afternoon. It firms up and dries up a little bit. For the most part, I think we handled it really well. We were still in the lead at the turn and leaked a little bit of oil in the middle of the back nine, but we ended well. The team is a little disappointed, but I will take a team that is disappointed with being where we are now. We will flush today out and get ready for tomorrow.”
