CARROLLTON, Texas – The No. 11 Texas A&M men’s golf team struggled to a 10-over par 298 and stand in fourth place after the first round of the University of North Texas’ Maridoe Intercollegiate at the Maridoe Golf Club on Sunday.
Head Coach J.T. Higgins said:
“We just weren’t very good today. Our focus and intensity were low, we had a lot of unforced mistakes and, with the conditions looking difficult tomorrow, we will have to play a little more inspired golf or we might get run over. It’s the most disappointing round we’ve played since early last spring. Hopefully, we show up with a little more ‘want to’ tomorrow.”
