CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico – By improving its scoring by two strokes in Monday’s second round of the Cabo Collegiate, No. 19 Arizona Men’s Golf kept up with the pack of teams in the top half of the leaderboards. The Wildcats sit in a tie for seventh place at 12-over par going into Tuesday’s third and final round. Senior Chase Sienkiewicz was electric for the Wildcats on Monday, carding a 3-under round of 68.
“We weren’t able to capitalize on our momentum from Sunday and got off to a slow start today,” said head coach Jim Anderson. “We did play better in the afternoon today and were more steady in our scoring. Hats off to Chase for shooting our team’s best round of the tournament by three strokes today. I am looking forward to seeing our team card some quality scores tomorrow and end our tournament on a high note.”
Sienkiewicz was one of only 11 players out of a field of 79 to shoot in the 60’s on Monday. He sits in a seven-way tie for eighth place at 1-under entering Tuesday’s final round after sinking four birdies in five holes on the back nine. Junior Sam Sommerhauser and senior Chaz Aurilia round out the Wildcats in the top-25 of the individual leaderboards as both sit in a tie for 25th at 3-over par.
The team’s steady play on the front nine saw it score par on 68.9 percent of the holes with five total birdies.
Arizona sits one stroke behind Florida State and two strokes back of Arkansas for top-5 positioning as Vanderbilt leads the entire field by 13 strokes in the race for the team title. Tuesday’s final round will be 18 holes at the Twin Dolphin Club.
